[j-nsp] Practice lab environments, any suggestions?

Which of the certification tracks are you going for?  Because eventually,
each will be different!

Two options to start out the way I see itŠ.  Grabbing a few SRX¹s or even
old J-series off EBay are good.  JUNOS is JUNOS at the beginning levels.
Eventually things separate though.

An MX would be another good option.  A single MX with good amount of
interfaces can be split into multiple routers using logical systems.
Other devices can too, but there are more limitations that seem to get in
the way and make life more complicated on non-MX devices IMHO.

Good luck in your studies!
