Aruba Certified Campus Access Mobility Expert Practical Exam


You will be given a customer scenario to validate your mastery of campus networking, primarily focusing on wireless networking. The exam will also include aspects of wired networking, specifically focusing on wireless networking, security, connectivity, performance optimization, and troubleshooting. You must carefully follow the directions to address the customer concerns presented in the scenario. This exam will be on simulated hardware.

Advice to help you take this exam :

  • Candidates are expected to pass the HPE7-A05 written exam before taking this practical exam.
  • Complete the training and review all course materials and documents before taking the exam.
  • Use HPE Press study guides and additional reference materials to prepare.
  • Exam items are based on expected knowledge acquired from job experience, an expected level of industry-standard knowledge, or other prerequisites (events, supplemental materials, etc.).
  • You must demonstrate proficiency at an expert level during this practical exam.
  • Completing the course or study materials alone does not guarantee passing the exam.
  • A panel of subject matter experts determined the range of possible responses to each practical task and essay question to allow for as many outcomes and responses that meet the requirements. Your responses must fall within this range of possible responses to earn credit for each practical task.
