JNCIS Enterprise Routing & Switching Certification Boot Camp

Duration:

4 days

Audience:

Employees of federal, state and local governments; and businesses working with the government.

Prerequisites

  • Introduction to the Junos Operating System (IJOS)
  • Junos Routing Essentials (JRE)

Or

Course Description:

This accelerated Boot Camp prepares you for the JNCIS-ENT exam and provides experience configuring and monitoring Junos OS devices.

In this accelerated Boot Camp, you will gain the routing and switching knowledge needed for success on the Juniper Networks Certified Internet Specialist – Enterprise Routing and Switching (JNCIS-ENT) exam, and you will gain the hands-on experience needed to configure and monitor the Junos OS and monitoring device operations.

You will review switching concepts and operations, virtual LANs (VLANs), the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), port and device security features, and high availability (HA) features.

Later, you will cover protocol-independent routing features, load balancing and filter-based forwarding, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and IP tunneling.

Your Boot Camp package includes:

  • Free JN0-343 exam voucher
  • Authorized Juniper Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR) courseware
  • Authorized Juniper Junos Enterprise Switching (JEX) courseware
