Implementing Aruba Campus Switching Solutions (IACS) - ACSPv1 Schedule FAQ Email us

Course Overview

This course teaches you how to implement and operate enterprise level Aruba campus switching solutions. Hand-on labs give you experience with ArubaOS-Switches, including securing access, redundancy technologies such as Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), link aggregation techniques including Link Aggregation Protocol (LACP) and switch virtualization with HPE’s Virtual Switching Framework (VSF).

You will also learn to configure dynamic routing with Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), network optimization via Quality of Service (QoS), IP multicast routing leveraging Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM), and protecting the network using Access Control Lists (ACLs). This course is approximately 30% lecture and 70% hands on lab exercises.

This course also prepares candidates to take the Aruba Certified Switching Professional (ACSP) v1 certification exam.

Course Duration

5 days (Classroom or Virtual)

Target Audience

IT professionals looking to build their networking knowledge and gain insight to campus switching solutions. That also includes Aruba Certified Mobility certification holders wanting to combine the deployment of campus switching and mobility solutions.

Course Prerequisites

Experience and knowledge of the OSI Model, IP Addressing and Subnettting, TCP/UDP, VLANs, Spanning Tree and Routing would be beneficial.
