PIMWN provides hands-on labs which cover controller firmware release 8.0 as well as Cisco Prime Infrastructure software release 3.2. All labs are hands-on labs via remote access, using real Cisco gear.
This course is available in multiple formats. You can purchase instructor-led training (ILT) in a classroom setting or virtual ILT via the web. Both the classroom ILT and virtual ILT versions of this course come with access to our state of the art remote labs that use actual Cisco equipment. For the classroom ILT version of this course, a laptop is needed to participate in the hands-on labs. Your laptop computer must have an Ethernet port as well as an internal wireless NIC, 802.11a/b/g/n. Access to the remote labs requires a browser that supports Java(R) and permissions to open RDP or encrypted (RDP443) RDP sessions. If your browser does not support Java, you will need administrator rights to the laptop to install software.
