ADCX – Data Center Fabric with EVPN and VXLAN
5 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Data Center

Course Details

This 5 days course is designed to provide in-depth instruction on IP fabric and EVPN-VXLAN data center design and configuration. Additionally, the course will cover other data center concepts, including basic and advanced data center design options, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), EVPN multicast enhancements, and an introduction to data center automation concepts.

The course ends with a multisite data center design lab. This content is based on Junos OS Release 17.4R1 and 18.2R1-S3.

Associated Certification: Juniper Data Center Professional (JNCIP-DC)
