This self-paced On-Demand eLearning course provides you with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples using Junos Enhanced Layer 2 Software (ELS). This course includes an overview of switching concepts and operations, VLANs, the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), port and device security features, and high availability (HA) features. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system (OS) and in monitoring device operations. This course uses Juniper Networks EX4300 Series Ethernet switches for the hands-on components, but lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running Junos OS. This course is based on Junos OS Release 21.4R1.12. Watch a Sneak Peek.
