    Course Details


    This course provides an introduction to the E-series router platforms, including the E320 router. The course covers E-series router features, applications, and hardware architecture. It gives an overview of using the E-series command-line interface (CLI), including user modes, CLI shortcuts, the file system, and file manipulation. The course teaches students how to use the CLI to perform basic router administration tasks and how to perform a basic configuration of an E-series router. The course also introduces the concept of virtual routers and discusses the basics of virtual router configuration.


    After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:

    • Describe the E-series router features and applications in both a B-RAS and dedicated access environment;
    • Describe the E-series router hardware architecture;
    • Describe the configuration options available for E-series hardware platforms;
    • List the different CLI user modes;
    • Describe the file system used on E-series routers;
    • Use the CLI to manipulate files, to reload E-series router, and to perform basic troubleshooting;
    • Use the CLI to configure the E-series platforms for basic IP connectivity; and
    • Perform basic virtual router configuration and management tasks

    Course Level   :  This is an introductory-level course designed to be a stepping-stone to the more advanced courses available in the Juniper Networks training curriculum.
