Junos Layer 2 VPNs (JL2V)

This course is an intensive program focused on MPLS-based Layer 2 VPN technologies, including BGP Layer 2 VPNs, LDP circuits, VPLS, EVPN, and more. Through comprehensive lectures and extensive hands-on labs, participants will learn to configure and monitor Layer 2 VPNs on Junos OS devices.

Junos Layer 2 VPNs (JL2V)



This course provides a comprehensive overview of MPLS-based Layer 2 VPNs, detailing the distinctions between Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs and their business applications. It covers the roles and configurations of CE, PE, and P routers in BGP Layer 2 VPNs, including setup, management, and troubleshooting practices for various VPN types like BGP, LDP, and VPLS.

Participants will also explore advanced VPN features and configurations in Junos OS, such as Ethernet VPN setups and Carrier-of-Carriers options, enhancing their skills in VPN scaling, route reflection, and network troubleshooting.


This course requires participants to have intermediate-level networking knowledge and experience with OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and Junos policy configurations, specifically in setting up MPLS label-switched paths using Junos. Prior completion of foundational courses such as Introduction to the Junos Operating System (IJOS), Junos Service Provider Switching (JSPX), Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR), and Junos MPLS Fundamentals (JMF) is also essential to ensure readiness for the advanced topics covered.
