- Course info
This intermediate Juniper Link Aggregation training prepares network administrators to create a high-bandwidth trunk between two physical switches by interconnecting them with two or more links that are combined into a larger virtual link.
The benefits of link aggregation are fairly obvious: much greater bandwidth and availability. Unfortunately, the process of implementing them is less straightforward. Link aggregation requires physically connecting two switches with two or more links and combining them virtually. With multiple physical connections being treated like the same virtual link, much more data can pass through, plus the interfaces themselves are protected against failure.
This Juniper Link Aggregation training will familiarize any network administrator in how to perform link aggregation with switches developed by Juniper Devices.
For anyone who manages IT training, this Juniper training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Juniper reference resource.
Juniper Link Aggregation: What You Need to Know
This Juniper Link Aggregation training has videos that cover link aggregation topics including:
- Understanding the theory of aggregating links to form a single link layer interface
- Balancing traffic across member links in an ethernet bundle
- Managing increased availability with redundant member links
- Configuring aggregated ethernet interfaces with the Junos operating system
Who Should Take Juniper Link Aggregation Training?
This Juniper Link Aggregation training is considered associate-level Juniper training, which means it was designed for network administrators. This Juniper routing and switching skills course is designed for network administrators with three to five years of experience with link aggregation.
New or aspiring network administrators. The process of aggregating links for different switches is a fairly advanced topic, but that doesn't mean brand new network administrators wouldn't benefit from this Juniper Link Aggregation training. Early in your career, you could be the one responsible for increasing bandwidth, providing for graceful degradation if failure occurs, or increasing availability -- get this training and learn how.
Experienced network administrators. Network administrators with several years of experience will probably have heard of link aggregation or already know the benefits of a system that automatically load-balance traffic across links. This Juniper Link Aggregation training can give you the skills and knowledge necessary for implementing your own aggregated links on Juniper switches.
