  • 1.  BGP on EX series

    Couple question regarding BGP.

    we're thinking of implementing BGP in our network environment  for ease of management.

    we have EX4300 router/switches in our network and my first question is ,

    1. do we need a license to run BGP on our Juniper devices?

    2. Does it come already installed with the device or do we need to purchase  license and install it?
    3.  where can I find good documentation to install and configure BGP on EX 4300 series?

    Thanks in advanced.

    There are a couple of steps to verifying feature and licenses.  For any feature you can search this in the Juniper Feature Explorer and verify which features are supported in particular devices and what Junos version is required.  This would be the sample for BGP overall with all the features listed.  So just confirm the ex4300 has all the knobs you want to configure.

    With the ex switch line you need to then check the data sheet to see what license levels and feature are included.  You will note in a footnote here that BGP is part of the EFL license package.

    In reality Juniper refuses to sell non-flex licences those days.
    In reality you now have to buy some «flex licences» («Premium» for BGP) described at
