Course Overview:

This JUNOS Intermediate Routing Training (JIR) two-day course provides you with intermediate 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, you will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and monitoring device operations.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
