This self-paced On-Demand eLearning course provides you with MPLS-based Layer 3 virtual private network (VPN) knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of MPLS Layer 3 VPN concepts, scaling Layer 3 VPNs, Internet access, Interprovider Layer 3 VPNs, and Multicast for Layer 3 VPNs. This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of Layer 3 VPNs. The concepts are put into practice with a series of in-depth hands-on labs, which will allow participants to gain experience in configuring and monitoring Layer 3 VPNs on Junos OS devices. These hands-on labs utilize Juniper Networks vMX Series devices using the Junos OS Release 19.4R1.10, and are also applicable to other MX Series devices. Watch a Sneak Peek.
