Juniper Session Smart SD-WAN (JSSS)


Course Overview

This four-day course is designed to teach network engineers and architects how to configure, manage, and troubleshoot 128T devices. Juniper Session Smart SD-WAN will teach students how to configure and use a 128T router and conductor. It starts with an introduction to 128 Technology and introduces the PCLI and GUI. Students use the GUI to deploy and configure their 128Ts. Students start from servers with just CentOS installed to a fully deployed network with multiple paths and three 128T routers and one 128T conductor. Students will then learn how to enable and configure advanced features on their 128Ts. These are features that are not necessary for a 128T deployment, but when activated, can be very powerful. Students will then explore the tools they can use within their 128T conductors and routers to monitor and troubleshoot potential issues. Students will learn useful commands and options in the GUI, testing the student’s ability to troubleshoot real-life 128T issues.
