Course Overviewremove_circle_outline

The Junos Service Provider Switching course is a two-day course that provides students with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples that are most common in a Service provider implementation. The course includes an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, provider backbone bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM).

This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB) interfaces, routing instances, virtual switches, load balancing, and port mirroring. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos Software and device operations.
