Quick Start Guide
Junos Space Network Director can be used for campus network management. In the campus, Network Director automates routine management tasks such as network provisioning and troubleshooting, dramatically improving operational efficiency and reliability.
Campus networks have increased variability and unpredictability stemming from a wide range of user and IoT devices. Juniper’s portfolio of services, software and hardware products securely address end to end campus network solutions.
Junos Space Network Director enables unified management of EX Series Ethernet Switches, MX Series routers, QFX Series switches, and Junos Fusion Enterprise in your network. It provides for full network life cycle management by simplifying the discovery, configuration, visualization, monitoring, and administration of large networks containing physical and virtual devices.
This chapter describes how you can install Network Director, upgrade Network Director, bring your devices under Network Director management.
These installation steps are intended for network operators and administrators who install, configure, and manage Junos switching with EX Series, QFX Series, and virtualized devices using Network Director.
Before you install Network Director, you must configure the Junos Space Appliance as a Junos Space node.
You can install Network Director in either Juniper Networks JA2500 Junos Space Hardware Appliance or a Junos Space Virtual Appliance. For details, see Setting up a Junos Space Appliance for Network Director.
