The Fortinet Ultimate Fabric Challenge (UFC) is a skill-based competition that consists of small teams competing against the clock and against other teams to complete several technical challenges presented to them in a “capture-the-flag" style competition.
The Fortinet Ultimate Fabric Challenge is a perfect opportunity for individuals who have invested time and effort to become skilled with Fortinet products to demonstrate their expertise to a wider audience.
The 3-hour competition will start with a discussion of rules and basic instructions. Participants are strongly encouraged to review the tutorial and preparation material that will be sent out to all XPERTS Summit registrants before arriving on-site. During the event, once the clock is started, teams will be presented with a realistic network scenario and a list of tasks they must complete and objectives to be met before the designated time expires. This is an “open-world” gaming environment where teams are free to choose the order in which they complete tasks and their approach to meet the objectives.
Each team will be scored based on completing a series of tasks and objectives by answering questions completing configurations etc. These tasks and objectives will range from basic recall to more abstract problem-solving. Bonus points can be awarded for the first team(s) to achieve each task or objective.
Top place teams will be recognized in the closing session. Prizes are listed below. Top regional teams (NSE 4 and above) will be offered a place in the annual global competition.
