Day One: vMX Up and Running

Day One

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Get the vMX up and running in your lab on Ubuntu’s Linux. Then build a sample topology and learn how to scale it. It’s fast and it’s easy with the vMX.

This Day One book follows the lab setup and the configuration of Juniper’s vMX Series 3D Universal Edge Router, running on Ubuntu’s Linux, the vMX router that has been optimized to run as software on x86 servers. Like other physical MX routers, vMX runs the Junos OS, and the Trio chipset has been compiled for x86. This means the sophisticated Layer 2, Layer 2.5, and Layer 3 forwarding features of the Junos OS that you are used to using with the physical MX platform, are also present on the vMX.

From the first chapter on the architecture of the vMX — which is key to understanding its sizing and licensing models — to the actual setup and configuration, to the scaling of a sample topology, this book can help you get the vMX Series up and running in a day.

• Understand the vMX router and be able to deploy the book’s use cases.
• Build, configure, and deploy the vMX in your lab or production environments.
• Scale an instance of vMX.
• License vMX for a lab or production deployment.
• Troubleshoot vMX installation and deployment issues.

“After reading this book I could effortlessly create a large service provider network using
over a dozen vMX routers, despite the fact that I have never touched either KVM or the
vMX before. This Day One book on vMX provides a detailed and fun walkthrough of several
scenarios, equipping you with a foundation to start building your own networks and
labs. It’s smart and to the point.” — Said van de Klundert, Sr. Network Engineer, Interconnect

“The ultimate book to guide you through your first steps into the future of Networking.
The book is a clear guide for engineers of all levels looking to introduce vMX in the Lab or
Production Network. Not only will it answer most of your questions about vMX but also
covers the configuration. A highly recommended book.” — Elliot Townsend, “UK&I 2015 Juniper SE of the Year”, Axians
