PRICE: kr35 000,00


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.

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. It also prepares candidates to take the Aruba Certified Switching Associate (ACSA) v1 certification exam.


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.


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