Half and Full-Day Training

At DataCipher, we offer our training courses in both traditional full-day and convenient half-day formats. Our half-day classes are specifically designed for IT professionals who cannot be away from their workplaces for consecutive full days. This flexible schedule allows participants to dedicate a few hours to learning and then return to their regular work responsibilities.

The curriculum for both the full-day and half-day formats is identical. The primary difference is that the half-day classes spread the coursework over a more extended period, providing a balanced approach to professional education. DataCipher has been successfully running these half-day training sessions for several years, receiving consistently positive feedback from our customers. They appreciate the flexibility and report that the extended timeframe facilitates a deeper understanding of the material, as it gives them more time to absorb and reflect on the information learned.

Upon completing this course, participants will have a thorough understanding of MPLS VPNs, distinguishing between provider-provisioned and customer-provisioned models, and differentiating Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs. The curriculum covers practical skills such as configuring, managing, and troubleshooting BGP Layer 3 VPNs, understanding routing information, and deploying advanced features supported by Junos OS.
