Service Provider Professional Bootcamp (JNCIP-SP)

This two-day course is designed to provide students with detailed coverage of multicast protocols including Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), Protocol Independent Multicast?Dense Mode (PIM-DM), Protocol Independent Multicast?Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), Bidirectional PIM, and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP). Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system and monitoring device and protocol operations.

JMR: This part of the course is designed to provide students with detailed coverage of multicast protocols including Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), Protocol Independent Multicast-Dense Mode (PIM-DM), Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP).

JCOS: This part of the course provides students with advanced class-of-service (CoS) knowledge and configuration examples. This part of the course begins with an overview of CoS before going into classification, policing, scheduling, and rewriting. Further it covers class-based forwarding and finishes with a case study.

AJSPR: This part of the course is designed to provide students with detailed coverage of OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and routing policy.

Target audience: 
This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and monitoring Junos Service Provider routers and switches and individuals who want to obtain JNCIP-SP certification.

This bootcamp is an advanced-level course. Students should have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also have working knowledge of security policies.Students should also attend the Introduction to the "Junos Operating System" (IJOS), "Junos Routing Essentials" (JRE), and "Junos Intermediate Routing" (JIR) courses prior to attending this class.
