Junos Enterprise Switching Skills Camp (JEX, AJEX) On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Junos Enterprise Switching Skills Camp (JEX, AJEX)

Course Description/Agenda

We combined two authorized Juniper courses, Juniper Enterprise Switching (JEX) and Advanced Juniper Enterprise Switching (AJEX), to create this convenient, four-day course in which you will build your intermediate and advanced Junos enterprise switching skills. You will gain hands-on experience with the features of EX Series Ethernet switches, including:

  • Virtual LANs (VLANs)
  • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), and VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (VSTP)
  • Authentication and access control for Layer 2 networks
  • Port and device security features
  • High availability (HA) features
  • IP telephony features
  • Class of Service (CoS)
  • Monitoring and troubleshooting

What You'll Learn

  • Benefits of implementing switched LANs
  • Transparent bridging concepts and operations
  • Terms and design considerations for switched LANs
  • Enterprise platforms that support Layer 2 switching
  • Configure interfaces for Layer 2 switching operations
  • Display and interpret the Ethernet switching table
  • VLAN concepts, including Voice and native VLANs
  • Access and trunk port modes
  • Configure and monitor VLANs
  • Inter-VLAN routing operation, configuration, and monitoring
  • Implement filter-based VLAN assignments and restrict traffic flow within a VLAN
  • Manage dynamic VLAN registration
  • Purpose and operations of a spanning tree
  • Configure and monitor STP and Rapid STP (RSTP) operations
  • Bridge protocol data unit (BPDU), Loop, and Root protection features configuration
  • Configure and monitor port security features and storm control
  • Implement multiple spanning-tree instances in a network
  • Implement one or more spanning-tree instances for a VLAN
  • Firewall filter support for EX Series Ethernet switches
  • Implement and monitor the effects of a firewall filter
  • Configure and monitor HA features
  • Implement and operate a virtual chassis with multiple EX4200 switches
  • Tunnel Layer 2 traffic through Ethernet networks
  • Benefits of implementing end-user authentication
  • Configure and monitor access control features
  • Processing considerations when multiple authentication and access control features are enabled
  • Configure and monitor features used in IP telephony deployments
  • Configure and monitor CoS in a Layer 2 network
  • Basic troubleshooting methods and tools
  • Common issues that disrupt network operations
