Junos Enterprise Switching is a two-day course that provides students with introductory switching knowledge and configuration examples. This course includes an overview of switching concepts and operations, virtual LANs, the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), port and device security features, and high availability (HA) features. This course is based on the Junos operating system Release 10.1R2.8.
Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and in monitoring device operations.
