This Blog post just comes out of excitement, Guess who i meet ?
“Keith R. Parsons” founder of WLPC and a CWNE.
“Ronald van Kleunen” Board of advisors for CWNE Certifications and a CWNE himself.
I could keep telling more about what they mean for this WIFI community and how much they have done for the community.
I always wanted to meet them personally and ask my questions regarding the Current Industry Wireless Design goods and bad with Keith and regarding Wireless Security with Ronald. And I didn’t had to wait for too long , yes i got this chance on 05/05/2017 @ Singapore.
During the day of session 1:
we had a brief discussion about Wireless design practices and keith shared a little of his design experiences . Topics including how the Wireless signal modulation works, whats with Multipath and how does a client behave in relation to those in RF physics and clients NIC cards algorithm and more about the WiFi Designs on real world.
Some notes from the session:
- Sin, -Sin, Cos, -Cos explanation about how Wi-Fi devices communicate using “Symbols”
(and SGI – Short Guard Interval = 400ns and non-SGI = “Long” Guard Interval = 800ns)
- BPSK (IEEE 802.11 1Mbps, 1-bit per symbol), QPSK (IEEE 802.11 2Mbps, 2-bits per symbol)
and all the way up to 256-QAM (.11ac, 8-bits per symbol).
Below is a short video from “KeithRParsons” explaining a bit about how 802.11 modulations, BPSK, QPSK, and QAM work.
Session 2 of the Day:
My favorite, Security and Wireless briefed by Ronald it was so much of information than I expected. How much is security important in your Wireless Infrastructure and what if we don’t meet and who are those organization and government body takes care of theses audit. And what if we don’t follow and to what extent the penalty would be.
*Vendor neutral education
*Secure the Wireless LAN infrastructure
24*x7 Monitoring and Reporting Wireless Security (Automation) using Wireless Intrusion Prevention
*Systems (WIPS) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) Systems
*Regularly do wireless security audits (wireless vulnerability assessments) in the organisation
We had a CWNEs round table. CWNEs are really open to guide other WIFI peers and happy sharing the knowledge for the community. They did discuss about their CWNE career and how it is helping them to do their job better.
I have to thank Ronald for organizing this meet and efforts in bring APAC Wireless community together.
CWNEs onboard / Round table : Keith, Ronald, Ram, Jeffrey, Shuang
Finally this happened, I got lucky on that day and I did receive an Awesome bag in Lucky Draw 🙂
Lastly, WirelessLAN Professionals Badge from Keith Made My Day.
