This self-paced course is designed for experienced networking professionals with beginner to intermediate knowledge of routing and switching implementations in Junos. This course includes an overview of protocol-independent routing features, load balancing and filter-based forwarding, OSPF, BGP, IP tunneling, and high availability (HA) features. The course then delves switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). The course wraps up concepts such as MPLS forwarding, the structure of the MPLS header, and configuration and operation of the two main label distribution protocols, RSVP and LDP.

Through lab demonstrations, students can watch how to configure and monitor the Junos OS and monitor basic device operations.
