Description


This two-day course is designed to provide students with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples using Junos Enhanced Layer 2 Software.


This course includes an overview of switching concepts and operations, virtual LANs (VLANs), the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), port and device security features, and high availability (HA) features.


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


This course uses Juniper Networks EX4300 Series Ethernet Switches for the hands-on components, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS.


Optional lab components are available allowing attendees to perform network management and troubleshooting tasks using Junos Space Network Director 3.0.


This course is based on Junos OS Release 20.1R1.11


Junos Enterprise Switching (JEX) is an intermediate-level course.
