Junos Layer 3 VPNs
This three-day course is designed to provide students with MPLS-based Layer 3 VPN (L3VPN) knowledge & configuration examples. The course includes an overview of MPLS L3VPN concepts, scaling L3VPNs, Internet access, inter-provider L3VPNs, & multicast for L3VPNs. This course also covers Junos operating system (OS) specific implementations of Layer 3 VPNs. The concepts are put into practice with a series of hands-on labs, allowing participants to gain experience configuring & monitoring L3VPNs on Junos OS devices. These hands-on labs utilize the Juniper Networks VMX Series devices using the Junos OS Release 22.1R1.10 & are also applicable to other MX Series devices.

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.
