Overview

​All Course Dates are Guaranteed to Run!

This two-day course is designed to introduce QFX5100 features including, but not limited to, Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), unified in-service software upgrade (ISSU), multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG), Mixed Virtual Fabric, and Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF). Students will learn to configure and monitor these features that exist on the Junos operating system running on the QFX5100 and EX4300 Series platform. 

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience configuring, monitoring, and analyzing the features of the Junos OS.

Intended Audience

​This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and monitoring switching features that exist on the Junos OS running on the QFX5100 and EX4300 Series platforms, including individuals in professional services, sales and support organizations, and the end users.

Course Level: Data Center Switching (DCX) is an intermediate-level course.
