The Arista Training Advantage
Arista differentiates itself through its training: all courses are accompanied by three weeks of lab time. This means you have lab time during the course and an additional two weeks after the course to improve your skills.
Arista Certified Engineer Program
The ACE Level 1 course is designed to establish a firm foundation in open networking and Arista EOS. The engineer will progress through fundamental topics such as Ethernet, IP, Routing and Switching exposing them to the ease of configuration in the CLI. The course will build on these topics and introduce architectures built upon modern Leaf-Spine designs used in today’s Enterprise Data Center and Campus environments. Engineers will be introduced to automation and Arista’s CloudVision Solution.
The ACE Level 2 course is designed to build upon the foundation in networking and Arista EOS established in Level 1. Engineers will focus on the Arista Universal Cloud Network (UCN) model for Layer 2 Leaf-Spine topologies leveraging MLAG and VARP. This same architecture is presented within the Arista Cognitive Campus architecture. The course will also introduce the Arista WiFi portfolio and features along with Campus specific features such as PoE. Engineers will then learn how the Arista DMF solution allows organizations to monitor a network-wide deployment.
The ACE Level 3 course is designed around Arista’s cutting-edge Software Defined Cloud Networks architecture. Engineers will master the core technologies found in most modern corporate networks today. Technologies such as MP-BGP, eBGP underlays, EVPN and VXLAN are a major focus of ACE:L3. In addition, traffic engineering, troubleshooting and security are examined in depth to include: QoS, Multicast, 802.1x, MSS, WIPS and DMF.
The ACE Level 4course is focused on more advanced DataCenter, DCI, WAN and Service Provider architectures. Engineers will explore the advanced routing capabilities available within Arista hardware and EOS. Topics such as leveraging VXLAN and MPLS between data center sites, leveraging IS-IS and OSPF for underlay routing, and Segment Routing will be discussed in depth. Advanced routing configuration and troubleshooting within service provider connectivity will be examined. Arista’s hybrid cloud solution leveraging AnyCloud and vEOS will also be covered.
The ACE Level 5 course is designed to give modern network engineers, architects and operations staff the needed skills to automate an Arista infrastructure. The focus of the course is mid-level programmability leveraging Ansible, Python and other commonly used automation languages. Advanced CloudVision capabilities will be explored to give the engineer a comprehensive set of tools and strategies to automate any Arista environment. This course is an extensive hands-on workshop format.
