DSSS

- Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum; transmission technology specified in the 802.11-1999 standard that uses 1 and 2 Mbps data rates. IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g amendments specify support for DSSS for backwards compatibility with 802.11 networks. The 802.11a amendment does not offer support for DSSS. AKA: IEEE 802.11 clause 15 PHY and IEEE 802.11b (when operating at 1 and 2mbps data rates).
Success Stories

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.
