Service Provider Specialist Bootcamp (JNCIS-SP)
This bootcamp is designed to prepare students for the JNCIS-SP certification, in order to become a Specialist on Juniper Service Provider Networking. This course covers the content of the Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR), the Junos Service Provider Switching (JSPX) and the Junos MPLS and VPNs (JMV) courses. Trough demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and monitoring device operations.
JIR:This part of the course provides students with intermediate routing knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of protocol-independent routing features, load balancing and filter-based forwarding, OSPF, BGP, IP tunneling, and high availability (HA) features.
This two-day course provides students with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interfaces, routing instances, virtual switches, load balancing, and port mirroring. Furthermore, this course covers the basics of Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP), link aggregation groups (LAGs), and multichassis LAG (MC-LAG).
This five-day course is designed to provide students with MPLS-based virtual private network (VPN) knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of MPLS concepts such as control and forwarding plane, RSVP Traffic Engineering, LDP, Layer 3 VPNs, BGP Layer 2 VPNs, LDP Layer 2 Circuits, and virtual private LAN service (VPLS), carrier-of-carrier VPNs. This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of Layer 2 control instances and active interface for VPLS. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and in device operations.
This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and monitoring Junos Service Provider routers and switches and individuals who want to obtain JNCIS-SP certification.
