Aruba switching simulation platform

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new within Airheads community and I'm preparing to get the ACSAv1 certificate basically using the official study guide. But, actually I need to find a platform where I could simulate the switching labs presented in the training, a platform in which switches such as 3800 and 5400R series can be simulated with no need for real equipments.

    For example, for Cisco equipments we use GNS3, so what about Aruba? please help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

     

    There is no simulation software availible for the switching platforms.

    If you are an HPE Aruba partner please reach out to you local SE/Sales Rep and they may be able to assit you.

     

    Thank you,

    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for your answer, at least I'm now sure there's no platforms that would help.  I'll go after another way and refer back to our local sales rep.

    I know this thread might be old, however i can see that EVE-NG now has Aruba CX Switch

    Can someone propose to create ArubaOS for EVE-NG.

    Because I can practice Cisco, Arista, ClearPass and many other things in EVE-NG except ArubaOS

    https://nbctcp.wordpress.com/2015/07/02/unetlab-installation-on-esxi/

    Not everyone could afford to buy 3800 or 5400.

     

    Which cheapest switch model support ArubaOS?
