Junos Enterprise Routing Skills Camp (JIR, AJER)

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

We combined two authorized Juniper courses, Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR) and Advanced Junos Enterprise Routing (AJER), to create this convenient Skills Camp in which you'll build your intermediate and advanced Junos enterprise routing skills. You will gain hands-on experience implementing, monitoring, and troubleshooting Layer 3 components, including:

  • Protocol-independent routing features
  • Load balancing and filter-based forwarding
  • Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
  • Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
  • Class of Service (CoS)
  • Multicast
  • IP tunneling
  • High availability (HA)
Audience
Network technicians responsible for configuring and monitoring devices running the Junos OS
