MikroTik: MikroTik CAPsMAN with LABs

BNT-ONL-MT-030 by Baltic Networks

Streamline your wireless network management with MikroTik CAPsMAN and learn the ins and outs of its configuration.


As network engineers, you may have encountered projects requiring the installation of a complete wireless network in hotels, malls, or exhibition centers. The objective is to ensure Wi-Fi coverage throughout the area, allowing users to seamlessly connect to the internet. In such complex networks, deploying tens or even hundreds of Wireless Access Points (APs) is necessary to achieve full coverage.

Each of these APs needs to be individually configured to function correctly. For instance, if you are dealing with 100 APs, configuring each one separately can be a very time-consuming process.

Enter MikroTik CAPsMAN, a solution that allows centralized control of all MikroTik APs from a single device, enabling you to manage wireless settings efficiently.

This course focuses on connecting all APs to the CAPsMAN and demonstrates how to control and configure them seamlessly from the CAPsMAN MikroTik Router through a practical LAB scenario. In this course, I'll guide you through a detailed, step-by-step process of configuring everything using CAPsMAN. After setting up the configurations, we will then connect to the wireless network to demonstrate that it functions smoothly and without any issues.

Key topics covered in this course include:

  • Initial Configuration on the CAPsMAN
  • Connect the CAPs to the CAPsMAN with and without certificates
  • Create Channels in CAPsMAN
  • Create Security profiles in CAPsMAN
  • Create Configuration containers in the CAPsMAN
  • Create Datapaths in CAPsMAN
  • Make Provisioning in the CAPsMAN
  • Configure VLAN's on CAPsMAN
  • Create Access lists
  • Make a backup CAPsMAN for failover

MikroTik CAPsMAN system is essential but often lacks clear instructional resources. This course aims to serve as a comprehensive guide, providing detailed explanations and practical lab exercises to effectively demonstrate how to configure and operate MikroTik CAPsMAN.

Who this course is for

  • Wireless network engineers interested to understand how to configure CAPsMAN
  • Network engineers who would like to gain knowledge to building a centralized wireless network using CAPsMAN
  • Students who wish to expand their knowledge in MikroTik
