Course Overview

This course teaches you the fundamental skills necessary to configure and manage modern, open standards-based networking solutions. This course consists of approximately 20% lecture and 80% hands-on lab exercises to help you learn how to implement and validate small to medium enterprise network solutions. This 3-day course prepares network professionals for the Aruba Certified Switching Associate (ACSA) V1 exam.

In this course, participants learn about ArubaOS switch technologies including: VLANs, secure access, redundancy technologies such as MSTP, link aggregation techniques including LACP, and switch virtualization with Aruba’s Virtual Switching Framework (VSF). You also learn about IP Routing including static and dynamic IP routing with OSPF. This course teaches you how to deploy Aruba wireless Access Points and configure Aruba Instant Access Point (IAP) Clustering technology. It also teaches you how to configure, manage and monitor the network with the Aruba AirWave management solution.

Who should attend

Ideal candidates are IT Professionals who deploy small-to- medium scale enterprise network solutions based on Aruba products and technologies.
