Wherever you go, nowadays, wireless is there. Some systems are professionally built, while some are do-it-yourself from Walmart. In either case, if you're the one setting it up, you need to be able to do it well.
Quality IT Engineers are constantly in demand, but so few who manage WiFi do it with a proper grasp of the dynamics. As a result, many fail with unclear excuses for the WiFi’s poor performance. When a manager has to find a long Cat5 cable to do a presentation for a national or international audience, the WiFi is a liability, and a threat to a network engineer’s job!
The ability to command Mission Critical Skills such as consumer brand routers, tactical purchase selection, lightweight access points, roaming guidelines will set you apart and make you the WiFi expert in your field.
