Overview

This two-day course is designed to provide students with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interfaces, routing instances, virtual switches, load balancing, and port mirroring. Furthermore, this course covers the basics of Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP), link aggregation groups (LAGs), and multichassis LAG (MC-LAG). This course uses MX Series 3D Ethernet Universal Edge Routers for the hands-on component. This course is based on the Junos OS Release 14.2R3.8.

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and device operations.
 

Target Audience

This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and monitoring devices running the Junos OS.
 

Prerequisites

Students should have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model and the TCP/IP protocol suite.
