This self-paced On-Demand eLearning course provides you with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, VLANs, provider bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). This course also covers Junos operating system (OS) specific implementations of integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interfaces, routing instances, virtual switches, load balancing, and port mirroring. Furthermore, this course covers the basics of Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP), link aggregation groups (LAGs), and multichassis LAG (MC-LAG). This course is based on Junos OS Release 22.1R1.10. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring Junos OS operations. This course uses MX Series 3D Ethernet Universal Edge Routers for the hands-on component. Watch a Sneak Peek
