- [Voiceover] Now that you understand…a few of the fundamentals of wireless network design,…I want to show you what this practically looks like…when you are using a Wi-Fi scanning tool…to see what's going on around you.…On the Mac, there are several tools available,…but there's one tool that I like…to use called WiFi Explorer.…And when WiFi Explorer first comes up,…it will show you a whole bunch of stuff, and here we go.…And you'll see there's a lot of information.…
So this can be quite daunting.…I'm going to walk you through this a little bit at a time.…First of all, right here in the middle,…you see you've got a few tabs.…I want you to be on the Channels tab…because this allows us to see what I've been showing you…over the last few movies.…That is, the 2.4 gigahertz…and the five gigahertz frequencies.…Now, right off the bat, you'll notice…I've got some networks here called Student Wi-Fi.…I've created these networks to show you…how you would properly design…the overlap in a 2.4 gigahertz network.…

The first steps involve preparation: purchase planning, Apple enrollment, and expanding your Wi-Fi network to serve a large number of new mobile devices. Sean then reviews the merits of different MDM software. He shows how to configure push notifications, set up profiles that control iOS functionality, and shows you how to find and install apps. He then examines the setup process from the user's perspective and explores alternatives to mobile device management, such as app-less deployment and a simple hands-off approach to device management.
