Cisco Unified Wireless students learn how to conduct wireless site survey from Dr. Avril Salter. She has held executive and technical positions in business environments ranging from start-ups to major corporations, including Intel, Microsoft, Sprint and others.

Dr. Salter has spent over 10 years teaching Cisco engineers about wireless LANs specifically, and holds a Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Reading, UK. Avril commented about importance of thorough site surveys, "A lot of people think that they can simply put up access points and connect. To some extent they are right. Wi-Fi has been developed to make it easy to coexist with other WLANs and other technologies operating in the same frequency band. However if you put up access points without conducting a site survey, trouble is only moments away."

The Cisco Wireless Site Survey contains 17 lessons in over 10 hours of video instruction. Students will receive 2 DVDs of video lessons and 1 DVD of additional content. Each lesson is available in several formats, iPod Video, Mp3 Audio, .WMV and high quality AVI, allowing students to use course materials on a variety of devices.
