Course Overview

The Junos Service Provider Switching course is a two-day course that provides students with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples that are most common in a Service provider implementation. The course includes an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, provider backbone 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. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos Software and device operations.

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and monitoring device operations. This course uses Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS. This course is based on Junos OS Release 12.1R1.9.

Course Length: 2 days

Audience: Network engineers, technical support personnel, reseller support engineers, and others responsible for implementing and/or maintaining the Juniper Networks products covered in this course.

Prerequisites:  Students must have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also have attended the Introduction to the Junos Operating System(IJOS) and the Junos Routing Essentials (JRE) courses or have equivalent experience prior to attending this class.
