Course Overview

This five-day course provides a comprehensive focus on Juniper Networks data center switching technologies.The first three days are designed to introduce the data center features including zero touch provisioning (ZTP), unified in-service software upgrade (ISSU), multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG), Mixed Virtual Fabric, and Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF) and provide students with knowledge of troubleshooting some of the key data center features including MC-LAG, Virtual Chassis, and VCF deployments.The last two days of the course are designed to introduce data center features that are more advanced including IP Fabric, Virtual eXtensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) Layer 2 and Layer 3 Gateways, VXLAN with Ethernet VPN (EVPN) signaling, and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) for a VXLAN overlay. Students will learn to configure and monitor these features on the Junos operating system running on the QFX5100, EX4300, and vMX Series platforms. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience configuring, monitoring, troubleshooting, and analyzing the mentioned features of the Junos OS. This content is based on Junos OS Release 17.1R1.8. Course Level Advanced Data Center Switching (ADCX) is an advanced level course.
