Submitted by TESSCO Technologies The demand for wireless local area networks (WLANs) contin- ues to grow. But users are now expecting to be able to connect not just in the office, but also in non-carpeted space. WLAN capabili- ties are required in manufacturing facilities, on the warehouse floor, in a rail yard, and in the service bay. Multiple Wi-Fi technologies are being deployed, driving increased work- force and network productivity that require network upgrades and increased sophistica- tion. Network engineers and IT organizations are required to continually train and recertify their knowledge base to stay ahead of emerg- ing trends and technologies. Designing, deploying, and maintaining a robust, high- performance WLAN network in the midst of the multiplying technologies and additional requirements of industrial and outdoor envi- ronments is a challenging assignment. Keep up with the exploding Wi-Fi market and user demands by leveraging the knowl- edge and solutions available from TESSCO. Product Portfolio Offering the broadest, most comprehensive product portfolio in the wireless industry, TESSCO provides access to the products you need for your network. With more than 25,000 products from approximately 375 industry- leading manufacturers, in addition to our sup- ply chain expertise, we ensure you have what you need to build, deploy, operate, and main- tain your Wi-Fi Network, no matter where it is. Rely on TESSCO for the products, solu- tions, services, and training to support all of your needs: Training Today's wireless deployments are increasingly more complicated. The wireless spectrum is crowded with devices that are all trying to share the free space of the 802.11 world. Wireless networks are no longer just carry- ing data; they are being used for voice, video, and location tracking and triangulation. These bandwidth-demanding technologies not only require faster networks, they require cleaner transmissions and robust networks that can handle workload. The best wireless equipment in the world will not per- form if the system is not designed, deployed, and maintained properly. Let TESSCO help you be suc- cessful in your wireless de- ployments with professional training to ensure that you have the knowledge and hands-on experience you need to remove guesswork and make your wireless desires a reality. WIRELESS AND NETWORKING TRAINING TESSCO offers training in Spectrum Analysis, Network Fundamentals/ Testing, and e-Learning and onsite Wi-Fi/ WLAN Fundamentals. Our instructors have many years of practical experience in both the RF and networking world and have the unique talent of understanding how they interplay. We can help you design WLAN networks and troubleshoot common interference problems. CISCO TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION GigaWave Technologies is a division of TESSCO and focuses on professional-level wireless and physical security training for the products from Cisco. GigaWave's instruc- tors bring their many years of "in-the-field" expertise to the classroom to educate engi- neers on proper methods of design, deploy- ment, maintenance, and troubleshooting wireless networks.

Taking Your Wi-Fi Network Into Rough Environments Featured Products Providing wireless access to your LAN poses challenges, which are increased when taking your network to a non- carpeted space. From the oil platform to the shop floor, WLAN products need to withstand tough environments. Moxa AWK Access Points Moxa's industrial IEEE 802.11 wireless AP/Bridge/ Client products AWK series for WLAN are ruggedly de- signed to resist the various effects of harsh industrial environments, such as high electromagnetic immunity to repel electromagnetic disturbances, galvanic isolation to guard against voltage instability, wide-temperature opera- tion, metal housing with IP-68 protection against dust and water, and shock/vibration resistance. Phoenix Contact mGuard The FL mGuard product line provides rug- ged and industrially rated security functions including firewall, routing, and VPN to in- dustrial networks. These high-level, Layer-3 networking functions are essential for pro- tecting your industrial network from both malicious attacks and accidental interruption, as well as connecting to office or IT networks and providing secure, fast connectivity for supporting remote installations. Ventev Outdoor, AP-Specific Enclosures Extend your indoor Wi-Fi Network out- side with Ventev's Outdoor Enclosure Systems. These systems offer you a va- riety of enclosure solutions that make the installation of indoor access points in outdoor environment safe, quick and cost effective. As fully integrated enclosures for the industry's most popular APs from Aruba Networks, Cisco Systems, Meru Networks, and Motorola Solutions, among others, these solutions are true plug-and-play systems designed with a robust alumi- num back plate that allows for seamless integration with your access point. PCTEL Dual-Band MIMO Antennas The MPMI2458 omnidirectional antennas from PCTEL operate at both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands supporting most 802.11n access points. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations, each model includes adjustable mounting hardware to allow mast/wall or ceiling tile installation. The series in- cludes various models offering dual-band 3-, 4-, or 6-port MIMO support, and are housed in a rugged, UV-stable housing and utilize plenum-rated, outdoor-rated coax cable. Featured Network Training Courses Network Fundamentals This hands-on TESSCO Training course is focused on common technologies and equipment utilized in many networks, and includes both traditional LAN technolo- gies in addition to wireless networking. Networking and its associated equipment can be complex and no two networks are alike. At the end of this course, students will have a solid understanding of networking fundamentals and principles; the OSI model and different types of networks; testing and maintenance of networks; and how to troubleshoot a network. Managing Cisco Wireless LANs (WMNGI) Led by GigaWave Technologies, this training class is designed to prepare students to use the Cisco Unified Wireless Network management products and applications to configure, administer, manage, troubleshoot, and optimize the network. This classroom-based, instructor-led class provides hands-on labs that cover controller firmware release 7.0 MR1, as well as Cisco Prime Net- work Control System (NCS) software release 1.0.
