Wireless technologies make up the bulk of Internet connectivity in today's networked environments. Wi-Fi provides a better way to connect, communicate, access, and send content to anywhere in the world. Sharing information on a virtual network is effortless, and understanding the concepts behind wireless technology is essential in enhancing your career.
In the EC-Council Wireless5 certification program, IT professionals will be tested on a wide variety of wireless technologies, including Bluetooth, IEEE, RFID, and HomeRF. Telephony products and network standards, in connection to specific mobile devices such as Blackberry, will be covered extensively. Knowledge of basic WLAN concepts, as well as wireless network architecture and environment, is required to earn a passing score on the Wireless5 exam, the only requirement to earn the certification.
Although on-the-job training will enhance your ability to pass the exam, it is not required. In fact, anyone interested in learning more about wireless networking can work to earn this certification. It can be applied in numerous jobs, held in companies that support the use of wireless connectivity. A Wireless5 training course, along with additional preparation resources, is available from EC-Council.
