Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Martin Brown, and welcome to my course, Junos OS and High Availability. In addition to being an author for Pluralsight, I'm also a network security engineer working for a Tier 1 service provider. In this course, we discuss ways of ensuring that no matter what equipment may fail in your network, end users and customers will still be able to connect to essential service using a practice known as high availability, also known as redundancy. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how to prevent a loss of power from bringing your network to a halt, how links disabled by the Spanning Tree Protocol can still be utilized, a way of notifying peers on the network when a router is about to restart, and how to speed up Layer 2 convergence. By the end of this course, you'll not only have a better understanding of the options available to ensure the maximum uptime of your network, but you'll also be able to confidently configure redundancy on Junos OS-based devices. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of configuring Junos OS, the Junos OS configuration hierarchy, and the basics of routing. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about how to give your organization not only a fast network, but a reliable one too with the Junos OS High Availability course, at Pluralsight.
