Juniper Cloud Fundamentals
Course OverviewThe three-day Juniper Cloud Fundamentals course focuses on cloud enabled networks, cloud service deployment concepts, and virtualized network platforms such as vSRX and vMX. This course will provide a high level overview and understanding of the following concepts: cloud network underlays, overlays, cloud design, cloud implementation methods, cloud services, and how Juniper Networks virtualized platforms can be used in those environments.
