CWSA® - Certified Wireless Solutions Administrator
A solid foundation for the rest of the wireless world.
While no certification can cover every single wireless technology in use today, it is important for wireless professionals to grasp the most frequently used wireless solutions in organizations. The Certified Wireless Solutions Administrator (CWSA) learning materials and exam will ensure students know these common wireless solutions and prove their knowledge through certification.
CWSA is built upon two decades of historic quality in WLAN (802.11) certifications and begins the extension of CWNP offerings into the non-802.11 wireless solutions. More details about the CWSA certification will be released in the coming months, but the following list provides a general overview of concepts addressed in this certification and the 4-5 classes that will accompany it:
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
- Cellular Solutions (LTE, LTE-U, 5G, CBRS)
- Machine to Machine Communications (M2M)
- Location Services
- Wired-Side Supporting Technologies
- High-Level Awareness of APIs and Automation/Integration Concepts
- Project and Program Management Specific to Wireless Solutions Projects
If you are familiar with the CWNA certification and learning materials, the CWSA will have the same approximate depth and breadth of learning. In the future, additional certifications will address key areas in greater depth, such as automation/integration, IoT, private 5G, etc.
