Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR)

Overview: 
This two-day 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. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and monitoring device operations.

Target audience:
Network engineers, support personnel, reseller support and others responsible for
configuring and monitoring devices running the Junos OS

Prerequisites:
Students should have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also attend the Introduction to Junos Software (IJS) and Junos Routing Essentials (JRE) courses prior to attending this class.

Objectives:
After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe typical uses of static, aggregate, and generated routes.
  • Configure and monitor static, aggregate, and generated routes.
  • Explain the purpose of Martian routes and add new entries to the default list.
  • Describe typical uses of routing instances.
  • Configure and share routes between routing instances.
  • Describe load-balancing concepts and operations.
  • Implement and monitor Layer 3 load balancing.
  • Illustrate benefits of filter-based forwarding.
  • Configure and monitor filter-based forwarding.
  • Explain the operations of OSPF.
  • Describe the role of the designated router.
  • List and describe OSPF area types.
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot OSPF.
  • Describe BGP and its basic operations.
  • Name and describe common BGP attributes.
  • List the steps in the BGP route selection algorithm.
  • Describe BGP peering options and the default route advertisement rules.
  • Configure and monitor BGP.
  • Describe IP tunneling concepts and applications.
  • Explain the basic operations of generic routing encapsulation (GRE) and IP over IP (IP-IP) tunnels.
  • Configure and monitor GRE and IP-IP tunnels.
  • Describe various high availability features supported by the Junos OS.
  • Configure and monitor some of the highlighted high availability features.
