Juniper Networks Data Center Interconnect - MPLS, L3VPN and EVPN for Service Provider System Engineers (JNDCI-EVPN-SP)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

EVPN is a rather new solution for Data Center Interconnect and gains rapid acceptance due to its inherent capabilities for combined Layer 2 and layer 3 connections over underlying WAN transport networks. Special components of EVPN like active/active multihoming, MAC/IP-move, L2/L3 interworking allow the design of flexible DCI-solutions for todays virtalized Date Centers.

Who should attend

This course is geared towards Service Provider System Engineers with good knowledge of MPLS and MPLS based Services (L3VPN, L2VPN, VPLS) responsible for configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting Data Center Interconnect Solutions based on EVPN


  • Good networking knowledge and an understanding of Routing protocols (OSPF, IS-IS, BGP)
  • Working experience with MP-BGP in MPLS networks
  • Experience in Configuring and Maintaining MPLS networks with L3VPN, L2VPN and VPLS services
  • Attend the Juniper MPLS and VPN (JMV) course or equivalent knowledge
  • JNCIS-SP and/or JNCIP-SP certification is of advantage

Course Objectives

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

  • Understand Date Center Interconnect Solutions
  • Ability to select the correct hardware platform for EVPN
  • Understand the different Backbone Transport Solutions for EVPN
  • Understand EVPN concepts and mechanisms
  • Understand the EVPN and BGP Interaction
  • Configuration and Verification of Basic EVPN network
  • Describe the solutions for Layer 2 and Layer 3 Coexistence in EVPN
  • Understand the Concepts of Single-homing vs Multi-homing in active/passive and active/active szenarios
  • Design and Configuration of Multi-VLAN EVPN instances
  • Understanding EVPN special requirements (e.g. DHCP, Server Load Balancing, MAC move,…)

Course Content

This three-day advanced-level course is designed to provide students with the tools required for implementing, monitoring, and troubleshooting EVPN setups and designing infrastructure components in an DATA CENTER INTERCONNECT (DCI) solutions. Detailed coverage of all EVPN mechanisms is strongly emphasized. Through in lecture demonstrations and hands-on labs, you will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos devices for DCI and in monitoring and troubleshooting device and protocol operations.

This course will use 5 physical (MX80) and various virtual (vMX) routers for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS. This course is based on actual Junos OS Releases 14.2 and 15.2.
