Advanced Data Center Switching (ADCX) Course Overview

Enroll for the 5-days, Advanced Data Center Switching (ADCX) training and certification course from Koenig solutions accredited by Juniper.

This five-day course provides a comprehensive focus on Juniper Networks data center switching technologies. The first two days are designed to introduce the data center features including zero touch provisioning (ZTP), unified in-service software upgrade (ISSU), multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG), Mixed Virtual Fabric, and Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF). The third day of the course is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge of troubleshooting key data center features including MC-LAG, Virtual Chassis, and VCF deployments. The last two days of the course are designed to introduce data center features that are more advanced including IP Fabric, Virtual eXtensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) Layer 2 and Layer 3 Gateways, VXLAN with Ethernet VPN (EVPN) signaling, and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) for a VXLAN overlay.

Says our CEO-
“It is an interesting story and dates back half a century. My father started a manufacturing business in India in the 1960's for import substitute electromechanical components such as microswitches. German and Japanese goods were held in high esteem so he named his company Essen Deinki (Essen is a well known industrial town in Germany and Deinki is Japanese for electric company). His products were very good quality and the fact that they sounded German and Japanese also helped. He did quite well. In 1970s he branched out into electronic products and again looked for a German name. This time he chose Koenig, and Koenig Electronics was born. In 1990s after graduating from college I was looking for a name for my company and Koenig Solutions sounded just right. Initially we had marketed under the brand of Digital Equipment Corporation but DEC went out of business and we switched to the Koenig name. Koenig is difficult to pronounce and marketeers said it is not a good choice for a B2C brand. But it has proven lucky for us.” – Says Rohit Aggarwal (Founder and CEO - Koenig Solutions)
All our trainers are fluent in English . Majority of our customers are from outside India and our trainers speak in a neutral accent which is easily understandable by students from all nationalities. Our money back guarantee also stands for accent of the trainer.
Medical services in India are at par with the world and are a fraction of costs in Europe and USA. A number of our students have scheduled cosmetic, dental and ocular procedures during their stay in India. We can provide advice about this, on request.
Yes, if you send 4 participants, we can offer an exclusive training for them which can be started from Any Date™ suitable for you.
