Juniper JSPX Overview
This two-day course provides students with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, provider backbone bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB) interfaces, routing instances, virtual switches, load balancing, and port mirroring.
Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and device operations.
After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:
- Describe carrier Ethernet.
- Describe the different Ethernet standards organizations.
- Describe the Layer 2 services that are available on the MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers.
- Describe the function of an Ethernet LAN.
- Describe learning and forwarding in a bridging environment.
- Describe Ethernet frame filtering.
- Implement VLAN tagging.
- Implement IRB.
- Implement a Layer 2 firewall filter.
- Describe the usage of a routing instance.
- Describe the function of a virtual router.
- Describe the function of a virtual switch.
- Implement a virtual switch.
- Describe interconnecting routing instances.
- Describe the different Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) VLAN stacking models.
- Describe the components of provider bridging.
- Configure and monitor provider bridging.
- Describe the components of provider backbone bridging.
- Configure and monitor provider backbone bridging.
- Explain the purpose of the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).
- Describe the basic operation of the STP, the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), the Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), and the VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (VSTP).
- Configure and monitor the STP, the RSTP, the MSTP, and the VSTP.
- Explain the purpose of bridge protocol data unit (BPDU), loop, and root protection.
- Explain typical OAM features.
- Describe the basic operation of link fault management (LFM).
- Describe the basic operation of connectivity fault management (CFM).
- Configure and monitor Ethernet OAM.

- Configure and monitor ERP.
This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and monitoring devices running the Junos OS.
This is an intermediate-level course.
Students should have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also attend the Introduction to the Junos Operating System (IJOS) and Junos Routing Essentials (JRE) courses prior to attending this class.
