Junos Enterprise Switching is a two-day course that provides you with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples. This course includes an overview of switching concepts and operations, virtual LANs (VLANs), the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), port and device security features, and high availability (HA) features. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, you will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system and in monitoring device operations. This course uses Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS. This course is based on the Junos OS Release 12.2R1.8.

Strong hands on labs. Frustrating that materials aren't easily accessible for later review or consumption.

J’aime cet environnement, je vois qu’on peut faire beaux de chose la dessus. J’aime ce genre de projet ou environnement bien fait.

The course was very thorough and the instructor ensured that all the students were on the same page.

It was a pretty good general overview. To actually use this stuff, however, I recognize that there would need to be a further dive.

The course was conducted in a methodical and in a timely manner. Very professional.
