CWNP Announces Update to Industry Standard CWNA Exam

New Technologies to be tested will include Single Channel

Architecture and 802.11n

ATLANTA–(EMWNews)–CWNP, the industry standard for wireless LAN training and certification

announces an update to the CWNA exam.

Launched in July of 2001, the CWNA exam is now in its 4th

revision. IT professionals from over 120 countries are CWNA certified.

Version 4 of the CWNA exam will incorporate two new major technological

advances to enterprise 802.11 deployment: Single Channel Architecture

(SCA) and 802.11n.

The new CWNA exam will be available at all Prometric and VUE testing

centers worldwide on November 3, 2008. The new exam number will be

PW0-104. With the release of the of the new exam PWO-104, exam

number PW0-100 will no longer be available as of close of business on

November 2, 2008.

Devin Akin, CTO of CWNP and the chief architect of content for all CWNP

curricula, says, SCA deployments have reached

significant popularity and market share. Almost every Wi-Fi vendor is

shipping 802.11n-capable hardware and software, and 802.11n deployments

are common. We see a significant and urgent need to educate the industry

on these technologies.

Cary Chandler, the President of CWNP, added, It

is our goal to stay just ahead of the implementation curve for

enterprise Wi-Fi. With the updates to the CWNA exam, supporting

materials, and curriculum, were doing just

that. Were seeing a market shift in

enterprise WLAN deployment because of the arrival of secure WLANs with

the capability to replace most edge or access networks. The properly

educated network engineer can do great things with secure 802.11n

networks in the enterprise today.

Publishers McGraw-Hill and Sybex, a division of Wiley, will be

publishing updates to the current CWNA Study Guides. The official CWNA

WLAN Administration instructor led training courseware will be updated

in October 2008. The official CWNA practice tests will be updated in

November, and current license-holders will be automatically updated to

version 4 of the practice test questions on
