    Hi folks, I am totally new to Juniper Networks I am originally a Cisco guy who went through CCIE R&S courses ATC labbed many different technologies played with BGP, MPLS within the SP scope and I do love Network Design, now I am going to be more added value by playing with SD WAN and Juniper.


    So I beleive in Advises from Experts on learning especially when starting something new, totally I don't know any thing about Juniper VoD,Docs, Juniper OSes to play within my GNS3/EVE or any, neither books nor training courses, SO I HOPE YOU HELP ME WITH YOUR WORDS 

    note: I am still a college student how hasn't any relevant works experience in the real world all is Homelab/Selfstudy 

    Many thanks in Advance

    Coming from a solid Cisco background like this your best resource is the free 5 hour course that is now part of the Junos Genius program.  You will see the banner link direct to the course on this page along with other resources.




    You will need to create a free Junos Genius account to access.

    Some additional sources / tools in addition to earlier posts:


    1) Course posted by Steve is excellent. Additionally you can watch on demand webinars as well (around 2 hours each)



    2) For the hands on training I suggest you to check (in addition to Pradeep's link for vQFX)

    From there you can get to vLabs (free cloud based labs) or download yourself a trial copy of vSRX (virtual firewall),  vMX (virtual router)  or vQFX (virtual switch).


    Guides for EVE (I haven't worked with EVE yet myself)




    GNS3 docs

    https://docs.gns3.com/appliances/juniper-vsrx.html  (yopu can find docs on vMX and vQFX in there too).


    3) You can learn from configuration examples on Junos being already familiar with concepts:


    DayOne books are very handy as posted earlier.

    Try to take look at the Learning Bytes section in Junos Genius too.



    Happy learning.
