The 4-day Juniper Networks Enterprise Switch Bundle course prepares students to install, implement and manage the EX-Series switch family of products. The courses that comprise this course discuss the configuration of Juniper Networks EX-series switches in an Enterprise network environment.

Topics include platform overview, user configuration interfaces, initial and secondary system configuration tasks, operational monitoring of an EX-series switch, Ethernet switching concepts, the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), inter-VLAN routing, switching security protocols and features, IP telephony features, class of service (CoS) and design and implementation considerations. Students will use remote access to configure Juniper EX switches in a variety of configurations in a lab environment.

The titles combined into this curriculum at a discounted price include:

  1. Junos Enterprise Switching (JEX)
  2. Advanced Junos Enterprise Switching (AJEX)
