This five-day training program is designed to provide in-depth instruction on IP fabric and EVPNVXLAN data center design and configuration. Additionally, this training program will cover other data center concepts, which includes basic and advanced data center design options, EVPN multicast enhancements, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), and in introduction to data center automation concepts. The training program ends with a multi-site data center design lab. This content is based on Junos OS Release 17.4R1 and 18.2R1-S3.

Radiant Techlearning offers “Advanced Data Center Switching (ADCX)” training program in Classroom & Virtual Instructor Led / Online mode.
