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.
 

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

Students should have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also attend the Introduction to the Junos Operating System (IJOS) and Junos Routing Essentials (JRE) courses prior to attending this class.

After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe carrier Ethernet.
  • Describe the different Ethernet standards organizations.
  • Describe the Layer 2 services that are available on the MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers.
  • Describe the function of an Ethernet LAN.
  • Describe learning and forwarding in a bridging environment.
  • Describe Ethernet frame filtering.
  • Implement VLAN tagging.
  • Describe and implement MVRP.
  • Implement IRB.

  • Implement a virtual switch.
  • Describe interconnecting routing instances.
  • Describe the different Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) VLAN stacking models.
  • Describe the components of provider bridging.
  • Configure and monitor provider bridging.
  • Explain the purpose of the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).Describe the basic operation of the STP, the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), the Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), and the VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (VSTP).
  • Configure and monitor the STP, the RSTP, the MSTP, and the VSTP.
  • Explain the purpose of bridge protocol data unit (BPDU), loop, and root protection.
  • Explain typical OAM features.
  • Describe the basic operation of link fault management (LFM).
  • Describe the basic operation of connectivity fault management (CFM).
  • Configure and monitor Ethernet OAM.
  • Describe the basic operation of Ethernet Ring Protection (ERP).
  • Configure and monitor ERP.
  • Describe the basic operation of LAGs and MC-LAGs.
  • Configure and monitor a LAG.
  • Describe a basic troubleshooting method.
  • List common issues that disrupt network operations.
  • Identify tools used in network troubleshooting.
  • Use available tools to resolve network issues.
