Whilst many an aspiring network engineer dreams of working on a large enterprise network, to do so takes time, dedication and knowledge. This course, is designed to educate and prepare network engineers for working in enterprise environments.
Many network engineers would love to move to working on a large enterprise networks, but to have the opportunity to do so takes education, experience, and dedication. This course, Layer 2 Switching and VLANs in Junos OS, along with the other courses in the JNCIS-ENT series, is designed to educate and prepare network engineers for working in enterprise environments. This course in particular begins with teaching you the basics which include Layer 2, switching and VLANs, and introduces Layer 3 switching in order to properly prepare you for the rest of the courses in this series. Next, you'll explore in-depth how to move data between VLANs. Finally this course will wrap up with teaching you how to continue, monitor, and troubleshoot Layer 2 switching. By the end of this course, you'll have the fundamental knowledge of Layer 2 Switching and VLANs to help continue your pursuit of working on large enterprise networks.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Martin Brown, and welcome to my course, Layer 2 Switching and VLANs in Junos OS. I am a network security engineer for a tier 1 service provider. Now networks have moved on considerably in recent years. They have become faster and bigger. They are now networks for the Enterprise. In this course we're going to look at switches designed for the Enterprise environment, Juniper EX series switches, and how they can move frames around the network quickly and reliably. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, how Ethernet has evolved, how switches switch, what VLANs are, and how to perform basic configuration on switches. By the end of this course you'll be able to understand the basics of switching, and feel more confident in applying a basic configuration on Juniper EX series switches, although, before beginning the course you should really be familiar with the basics of the Junos operating system. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn all about switches with the JNCIS-ENT Layer 2 Switching and VLAN course at Pluralsight.
