Book Description

31 July 2009 059615397X 978-0596153977 1

JUNOS Enterprise Switching is the only detailed technical book on Juniper Networks' new Ethernet-switching EX product platform. With this book, you'll learn all about the hardware and ASIC design prowess of the EX platform, as well as the JUNOS Software that powers it. Not only is this extremely practical book a useful, hands-on manual to the EX platform, it also makes an excellent study guide for certification exams in the JNTCP enterprise tracks.

The authors have based JUNOS Enterprise Switching on their own Juniper training practices and programs, as well as the configuration, maintenance, and troubleshooting guidelines they created for their bestselling companion book, JUNOS Enterprise Routing. Using a mix of test cases, case studies, use cases, and tangential answers to real-world problems, this book covers:

  • Enterprise switching and virtual LANs (VLANs)
  • The Spanning tree protocol and why it's needed
  • Inter-VLAN routing, including route tables and preferences
  • Routing policy and firewall filters
  • Switching security, such as DHCP snooping
  • Telephony integration, including VLAN voice

Part of the Juniper Networks Technical Library<™>, JUNOS Enterprise Switching provides all-inclusive coverage of the Juniper Networks EX product platform, including architecture and packet flow, management options, user interface options, and complete details on JUNOS switch deployment.

Just finished reading the book. Very well written and covers a lot of ground. Clear and to real life related examples which also illustrate very detailed interoperability issues with Cisco environment.

I am Juniper Networks Certified Instructor for M/T, J, EX, ES and I must say I wish the training material was written this way. This book could easily be used as a Student Guide on an EX-Series training.

I would recommend this book to anyone working with Juniper Networks EX-Series switches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marschke and Reynolds Do It Again 27 July 2009
By R. Yaklich - Published on Amazon.com
Their second book is sure to be another hit. I just got through my copy and found it extremely helpful especially with the practice questions in the back. These guys know what they are talking about! And make it a pleasant read for a technial book. I heard Doug Marschke also teaches classes. Would love to sign up for one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Make this a part of library! 18 Sep 2009
By Barny S. Sanchez - Published on Amazon.com
Once again Harry and Doug bring together a very comprehensive lecture!

This is a great book, in fact a very cool one. It is packed with historical info as well as in-depth information about switching technologies, Juniper's EX product line, and interoperability with Cisco, which made it all that more special to read. This book is good for newbies or more advanced networkers too.

I also suggest Juniper and Cisco engineers alike to buy this. It will help you greatly given the multiple scenarios that are presented using both vendors products.

Both writers have a ton of experience in the industry, are recognized as some of the best in the field, and their writing style makes it very entertaining and highly engaging to read this piece from cover to cover.

Excellent job Harry and Doug. Thanks for writing this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great O'Reilly Book 25 Dec 2013
By LAN Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have both the Enterprise Routing and Enterprise Switching books.

They are both great resources.

They have helped me initially grasp concepts terms and syntax. And they continue to be valuable references.

The chapters are developed logically, and the examples provided are very helpful.

And I seldom travel without it now, as it is loaded on my Kindle. Stuck in an airport, or making a long flight, it's easy to pull out my Kindle, listen to some music AND (re-)read a chapter or two to further clarify a topic.

For me, this is not a "read it once" text. There's always a "little more" to be mined.

Not in the same league as Cisco Press Books. I'm not referring to Cisco vs Juniper but the writing and information style. I went from a Cisco shop to a Juniper shop. And before that I was Desktop Support moving into Networking. Using the Cisco Press Books to make my way from Desktop Support world to Cisco Networking world, gave me better direction and structure than this "JUNOS Enterprise Switching" book is doing to get me from Cisco Networking world to Juniper Networking world. I also purchased "JUNOS Enterprise Routing" & "Juniper Networks Warrior", I'm not impressed by either of those. This is not a Cisco vs Juniper thing. The truth of the matter is, Juniper is a better networking system than Cisco in my opinion. I hope Juniper books get to the same level as Cisco Press books. Maybe Juniper needs a Juniper Press division.
