This five-day, online course provides students with the foundational knowledge required to work with the Juniper Apstra Freeform reference design and to manage networks with Juniper Apstra software. This class expects that the attendees have the knowledge to use Jinja2 templates.

The course covers the overall concept of intent-based networking, the Juniper Apstra architecture, the high-level differences between the Data Center and Freeform reference designs, navigation of both the global and blueprint Apstra UI as well as introduce students to device profiles, installing device agents, device management (including ZTP of devices), role-based access control (RBAC), REST API, creating tags, creating resources, and enabling syslog. The course goes on to cover the Juniper Apstra freeform reference architecture including the designing, building, deploying, and automation of a network using configuration templates, property sets, and device context. After teaching you to use Juniper Apstra Freeform reference architecture to build a running network, the course reviews the operational tools for managing a system with Juniper Apstra including basic troubleshooting, deploy modes mode, adding and removing devices from a network, rolling back an entire network (Time Voyager), and using Intent-based Analytics (IBA).

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring an IP fabric using Juniper Apstra's Freeform features.
This course is based on Juniper Apstra Release 4.1.2.

Note: This course encompasses all required introductory Apstra content previously available only in the Data Center Automation Using Juniper Apstra course. This inclusion enables a streamlined Apstra Freeform learning journey. However, if you plan to take both five-day courses, be aware that the introductory content is duplicated in each.
