Enterprise Networking Specialist Bootcamp (JNCIS-ENT)


This bootcamp is designed to prepare students for the JNCIS-ENT certification exam. It covers the content of the Junos Enterprise Switching course (JEX) and the Junos Intermediate Routing course (JIR). Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the JUNOS OS and monitoring device operations. 

JEX:  This part of the course provides students with introductory switching knowledge and configuration examples. It includes an overview of switching concepts and operations, virtual LANs (VLANs), the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), port and device security features, and high availability (HA) features. 

JIR: This part of the course provides students with intermediate routing knowledge and configuration examples. It includes an overview of protocol-independent routing features, load balancing and filter-based forwarding, OSPF, BGP, IP tunneling, and high availability (HA) features. 

Target audience: This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and monitoring Juniper Networks Enterprise Switches and Routers and individuals who want to achieve the JNCIS-ENT certification.

Prerequisites: Students should have networking knowledge and an understanding of the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocol suite and should be experienced with switching and routing concepts. Students should have attended the Introduction to Junos OS (IJOS) and Junos Routing Essentials (JRE) courses or should have equivalent knowledge and experience.
