// About Housley’s ACI Capabilities

Housley has been actively engaged in providing training and services to Cisco, Partners and Customers on Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure technologies since product release in 2014, backed by a 40 year plus history in ICT Consulting and Education and 15 years as a Cisco Learning Partner.

Housley has been engaged by Cisco as the only Learning Partner in the APJC Region to deliver the following programs:

  • ACI System Engineer (SE) training (2 days)
  • ACI Field Engineer (FE) training (5 days)
  • ACI Lab Standup services
  • ACI Operations and Administration training (post-deployment, 5 days)

Beyond training, Housley has been authorised by Cisco’s ACI Business Unit in the US, to act as mentor to Partners on their first ACI deployments, as part of partner ATP certification.  Alongside Cisco Advanced Services, Housley is the only approved provider in the APJC market to carry out this function.

Housley Instructors have been leading multiple groups through SE & FE training across APJC since late 2014, with our Consultants involved in strategic planning workshops for IT teams in large enterprise organisations who are looking to employ ACI technologies, including design and architectural recommendations for the first deployments of ACI in ANZ.  Our Consultants have also led a number of ACI lab stand-up processes of customer ACI lab environments.
