0:06 juniper mist wired assurance makes day

0:08 one configuration

0:09 simple yet powerful the templates can be

0:11 configured at an org level

0:13 site level or a specific switch navigate

0:16 to organization and switch templates

0:18 we'll use prod template in this example

0:22 the first template configures the radius

0:24 and ntp servers at the org level

0:26 or for all the switches in the network

0:30 the shared elements configuration is

0:32 shared among the switches

0:34 this is where you can create specific

0:36 iot corporate or camera networks

0:38 mapped to vlan ids

0:45 you can create port profiles for camera

0:46 devices customizing poe settings

0:49 assigning networks and speed negotiation

0:56 once the configuration is set it's time

0:58 to apply the template

0:59 let's save this as test hyphen rule and

1:01 apply it to switches assigned with an

1:03 access role

1:04 or you can apply the rules to particular

1:06 switch models

1:08 the templates also allow you to apply

1:10 port profiles to port

1:12 ranges in all the switches assigned to a

1:13 site for example port 4 is for access

1:16 points

1:17 and port 5 is for iot devices

1:24 now the template can be applied to a

1:26 site at primary site you can see all the

1:28 inherited configuration that we just set

1:30 at a global level

1:32 these templates are simple yet flexible

1:34 meaning that you can override the global

1:36 configurations at an organization

1:38 site or switch level

1:41 [Music]

1:43 if we click into the ex2300 you see that

1:46 it has inherited the config defined by

1:48 the global templates

1:50 you can also choose to override template

1:52 settings changing it from to

1:56 time.google.com

2:00 this switch has also inherited all the

2:02 networks port profiles and switch

2:04 configurations

2:05 the templates make the initial setup

2:07 easy and can also

2:08 adapt to specific site or switch

2:10 settings as needed

2:12 you can also click into the port icons

2:14 to change the configurations as needed

2:16 for a single

2:17 or multiple ports

2:20 whether you configure templates and

2:22 profiles for one site or thousands of

2:23 sites

2:24 you can scale with consistency and

2:26 commonality with ease
