I recently finished a Cisco CCNA and now am possibly getting a job with a local service provider that deals with Juniper MX480 and MX 960 devices. I am trying to get familiar with this equipment. The people I am working for stress that it is "service provider and not enterprise configuration or setup" on the equipment. I started messing around with some command on VLabs sandbox and downloaded GNS3 and am watching some videos on how to do juniper on GNS3 (a bit of a learning curve or time investment just getting the VM set up). Would anyone be able to advise me on the easiest short term (long term as well, maybe) way to get my feet wet with the equipment that I possibly will be working with? I am also new to this forum, so hopefully I posted in the right place,
I noticed you work at a telecommunications company that deals with metro ethernet. I am particularly interested in how Juniper switches are configured or used from the service provider perspective for metro ethernet. I am new to this field, so if you could also recommend any specific resources that would be greatly appreciated.
I have on my blog a collection of the Juniper mpls related documentation. There are two of the free books already mentioned above along with the Architecture and configuration guides from the documentation group.
