ACMP: Aruba Certified Mobility Professional

Best Mobility Certifications 2018

Aruba Networks, acquired by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) in 2015, is perhaps best known for its network infrastructure solutions, but it's also a major player in next-generation mobility networks.

The HPE certification program includes several Aruba mobility and network management credentials. The Aruba Certified Mobility Professional, or ACMP, identifies network engineers who install and maintain enterprise mobility and wireless LAN (WLAN) projects. It's a step up from the Aruba Certified Mobility Associate (ACMA) and is a prerequisite for the more advanced Aruba Certified Mobility Expert (ACMX). The primary difference between the associate- and professional-level credentials is a focus on skills in environments with a single "Mobility Controller" versus multiple controllers, respectively. The expert-level certification is concerned with implementation and troubleshooting in large-scale WLANs.

The ACMP exam covers concepts, networking and topology design for Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks. An ACMP is expected to have deep knowledge of Aruba Networks mobility and WLAN products, firewall roles and policies, operations, planning and design, intrusion detection systems, troubleshooting techniques and applications/solutions.
