Juniper switches

Mon Apr 29, 2013 6:43 am

Is the EX series the only option for learning switching? The cheapest is like 500 USD a pop. That's a little much.

Maybe you can look at an srx 100B, they provide layer 2 switching features, don't know if it's enough to study Juniper switching, but they are not that expensive.

A little cheaper but not by much. Thanks.

SRX gives you a switching, routing, and security platform in a single box though.

But not 100% ideal for the EX track I think

I'm going to put off getting any switches for now. Still just contemplating doing the JNCIA-Junos just for the hell of it.
