LENGTH: 24 Hours (3 days)
This three-day course provides introductory instruction on data center switching using Juniper products.
Although this course does not cover Ethernet VPN–Virtual Extensible LAN (EVPN/VXLAN) architecture, it covers the baseline knowledge necessary to understand a data center that is built upon an IP fabric with an EVPN/VXLAN overlay.
This course covers OSPF, BGP, routing policy, link aggregation, Ethernet switching, VLANs, load balancing, filter-based forwarding (FPF), layer 2 security features, routing instances, graceful restart, and BFD.
Introduction to Juniper Data Center Networking (IJDC) is an introductory-level course.
• Identify and describe how to configure a typical data center layout, including spine and leaf placements.
• Describe an IP fabric architecture.
• Explain and configure basic Ethernet switching.
• Explain and configure virtual networks (VLANs).
• Describe layer 2 security.
• Implement link aggregation.
• Describe and implement protocol independent routing and routing instances with Junos OS.
• Configure load balancing within Junos OS.
• Implement filter-based forwarding (FBF) using Junos OS.
• Describe and deploy OSPF.
• Describe and deploy BGP.
• Implement graceful restart and BFD using Junos OS.
This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and managing network equipment in data centers.
