The ERX – Introduction to Juniper Networks RoutersÂ course provides an introduction to the E-series router platforms, including the E320 router. The course covers E-series router features, applications, and hardware architecture. It gives an overview of using the E-series command-line interface (CLI), including user modes, CLI shortcuts, the file system, and file manipulation. The course teaches students how to use the CLI to perform basic router administration tasks and how to perform a basic configuration of an E-series router. The course also introduces the concept of virtual routers and discusses the basics of virtual router configuration.
