Target Audience

Ubiquiti Broadband Wireless Certification Track
While not a prerequisite to the UBWA course, the UBWS (Specialist) course teaches you basic, foundational wireless concepts, regardless of your technical background. It also introduces you to the vast potential of Ubiquiti’s outdoor wireless products while familiarizing you with the radio web management platform, airOS. The UBWA course targets students who have some experience in wireless networking, independent of vendor. Both courses are fast-paced and feature plenty of lab activities to reinforce theory and practice technical concepts

Hands-On Labs

Like with the UBWS course, the UBWA lab activities are written with great detail so you can follow each step closely and understand the technical objective of the activity. Your trainer will provide you with an airMAX- ac radio/antenna (the LBE-5AC-23 is used in the course lab activities). For each lab activity, read the description at the beginning to understand the objectives. Then proceed to follow the instructions step-by-step as you configure your airMAX radio. At the conclusion of the lab activity, compare your lab topology with the topology diagram listed, then answer the questions in the review.

Your trainer will assign you a unique number (X) to differentiate your IP settings from that of others. Later, you will work in groups (Student A and B) to complete lab activities, where your unique number (Student X) is still used for reference. As an example, Student A and B work in a group and use their unique numbers (1 and 2, respectively). If the lab activity requires Student B to set an interface address to “10.1.(100+A).B”, then Student B would set the interface address to “10.1.101.2”, since (100+A) = (100 +1) = 101 and B = 2.
