And The Road Goes Ever On...

And The Road Goes Ever On...

By CWNP On 06/04/2012 - 8 Comments

It was a Commodore Pet. I turned on the system, saw the lime flickering text on the screen, and was hooked for life. Like an addict, I pursued the knowledge of computers and computing with a passion that has sometimes bordered on insanity. All-nighters, caffeine filled weekends and shopping online for documentation older than I am have all led me to where I am today. Yes, the journey started with a stand-alone Commodore computer (which I still argue was the best line of computers in personal computing history), but it moved well beyond the scope of personal computing.

In the last twenty years, I have worked continuously in the technology sector. This time window has arguably introduced the most rapid growth and change within the industry. While using Commodore machines at home early on (from the Pet-CBM through to an Amiga 500), I have supported PCs since the very early 1990s and computer networks and systems since July 1995. From this background, I found my way into the wireless LAN (WLAN) market and have been enthralled by it now for more than a decade. I am excited to bring my experience and drive to the CWNP program and we have exciting things planned for the future.


One major new project is the 802.11 commentary series. We will be creating free videos teaching through the 802.11 standard. The series will be based on the 802.11-2012 update, but will also include any new amendments that come along in the future. The purpose of the series is to provide commentary on the standard document from start to finish. It is also to help you all become more comfortable reading and understanding “standard language” and standards documents. Along the way, we will also explore some IETF standards and Wi-Fi Alliance certifications.


While the series will not focus directly on the various CWNP exam objectives per se, it will indeed cover much of the knowledge needed for the exams. Of course, it’s not intended to be a replacement for the official courses, video courses and study guides that are designed specifically for the exams and provide the selected knowledge needed for them.


In addition to these free videos, we will continue to communicate through the blog, webinars and forums here at the CWNP.com Web site. We will begin to revisit some of the WLAN fundamentals and continue to address the latest and greatest technologies in the 802.11 market.


Until then, guard your frames.

This was a very good computer system in that time for every who thinking to go to the uk best essays for their future job. This computer was developed after covering a lot of aspects as the IQ test, the general knowledge test, etc. I have used this computer 3 years ago, and it was a very good experience. Thanks a lot for sharing such information here with others.

Excited for the 802.11 video series. Though I am not appearing for the CWNP in near future, but I'ld love to have the more and more knowledge about wireless networking. All the best for your project.

I literally just came out of the testing centre having taken the CWDP exam. The certification process opened my mind to different techniques and solutions. This knowledge can only broaden your perspective. Great job, CWNP, you have a great thing going on here.

I want to commend you and all at CWNP for having a great organization. You really 'raise the bar' on knowing Wi-Fi well. I have learned a ton of information that is helping my job experience and personal career goals, because of my CWAP/CWDP/CWSP studies. Kudos to all at CWNP.
