Junos Layer 2 VPNs
(Normal) The purpose of this three-day course is to equip students with the skills necessary to design, implement, and troubleshoot a variety of layer 2 MPLS VPNs, including pseudo wires (BGP L2VPNs, LDP L2Circuits, FEC 129, & CCC), virtual private LAN service (VPLS), and Ethernet VPN (EVPN). The hands-on labs in this course, which is based on Junos 21.2R1, provide extensive practice with CLI configuration, numerous examples of common errors, and the troubleshooting steps necessary to fix them.

Q: What is enterprise switching?
A: This means the enterprise network has a great core switch, with additional distribution layer switches which generally operate below it to bring all the information into the data center & after that, disseminate it out to the access layer where the end users are located & there is fewer data traffic.
Q: Is a router the switch?
A: switch connects several devices to create a network, and a router connects multiple switches, & their respective networks to form an even more extensive network. These networks may be in various locations or across multiple sites.
Q: What is Juno's Operating System?
A: Juniper Networks provides high-performance network devices that create a responsive & trusted environment for accelerating the deployment of services & applications over a single network. The Junos operating system (Junos OS) is the foundation of these high-performance networks.
Q: What is the infrastructure required to attend your training program?
A: To attend the training session, you should have operational Desktops or Laptops with the required specification and a good internet connection to access the labs.
Q: What if I miss a class on a particular day?
A: We would always recommend you attend the live session to practice & clarify the doubts instantly & get more value from your investment. However, if, due to some contingency, you have to skip the class, Radiant Techlearning will help you with the recorded session of that particular day. However, those recorded sessions are not meant only for personal consumption & NOT for distribution or commercial use.
Q: How will I be accessing the labs?
A: Radiant Techlearning has a data center containing a Virtual Training environment for participants' hands-on practice.
Participants can easily access these labs over Cloud with the help of a remote desktop connection.
Radiant virtual labs allow you to learn from anywhere in the world & in any time zone.
