Advanced ACI


Live Virtual

This two-day ILT course builds on ACI fundamentals to provide expert-level training and lab time in the most-requested advanced training topics. Material covered includes: Design Best Practices, Legacy Network Integration, Multiple Site Options, Micro-segmentation, ACI & UCS, Application Dependency Mapping, and Advanced L3Out topics.


BTA has deployed over 250 ACI Fabrics, and these are the Advanced topics that are implemented most frequently.

After organizations have begun the SDN journey with ACI, they require expertise in Legacy migrations, Design best practices, Micro-segmentation and other topics. This course delivers that expertise.

This is the Next Step in ACI expertise. 


After the course attendees will be able to:

  • Optimize their ACI Fabric
  • Understand the most common options and design choices for L3Out external routed connectivity
  • Migrate legacy workloads to an ACI fabric
  • Identify all the components of legacy applications and build ACI Application Profiles
  • Configure various options for multiple-site ACI deployments
  • Configure micro-segmentation
  • Configure UCS servers for optimal ACI operations
  • Design an ACI fabric according to field-hardened Best Practices


Target Audience

This course is for Architects and Network Engineers who design Cisco ACI data center networks.
