This three-day course provides introductory instruction on data center switching using Juniper products. This course does not cover Ethernet VPN–Virtual Extensible LAN (EVPN-VXLAN) architecture, but lays the foundational knowledge necessary to understand a data center that is built upon an IP fabric. In addition, this course covers Ethernet switching, VLANs, Layer 2 security features, routing policies, link aggregation, load balancing, filter-based forwarding (FBF), routing instances, BGP, graceful restart, and bidirectional forwarding detection (BFD). Associated Certification: Data Center, Associate (JNCIA-DC)
  • 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 FBF using Junos OS.
  • Describe and deploy OSPF.
  • Describe and deploy BGP.
  • Implement graceful restart and BFD using Junos OS.
