Before embarking on a full-scale WLAN deployment on your enterprise network, perform a trial deployment on a WLAN test network in your lab to familiarize yourself with how the technology works and resolve any issues that arise before deploying the enterprise WLAN. After setting up your WLAN test environment, perform a limited test to ensure that all components are working together under a simplified certificate infrastructure. Then expand the test environment, testing your Group Policy design and a three-tier CA infrastructure. Figure 11.7 shows the process for implementing a WLAN test environment.
