Junos Layer 3 VPNs (JL3V)


LENGTH: 3 day(s)

PRICE: €2 350,00


This three-day course is designed to provide students with MPLS-based Layer 3 virtual
private network (VPN) knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an
overview of MPLS Layer 3 VPN concepts, scaling Layer 3 VPNs, Internet access,
Interprovider Layer 3 VPNs, and Multicast for Layer 3 VPNs. This course also covers
Junos operating system-specific implementations of Layer 3 VPNs.
These concepts are put into practice with a series of in-depth hands-on labs, which will
allow participants to gain experience in configuring and monitoring Layer 3 VPNs on
Junos OS devices. These hands-on labs utilize Juniper Networks vMX Series devices
using the Junos OS Release 19.4R1.10, and are also applicable to other MX Series

Course will be delivered using latest available course material version offered by Juniper
