AJER - Advanced Junos Enterprise Routing (AJER)

This four-day course is designed to provide students with the tools required for implementing, monitoring, and troubleshooting Layer 3 components in an enterprise network. Detailed coverage of OSPF, BGP, class of service (CoS), and multicast is strongly emphasized. The course also exposes students to common troubleshooting commands and tools used to troubleshoot various intermediate to advanced issues. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system and in monitoring device and protocol operations.

This course uses Juniper Networks vSRX virtual firewall for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS. This course is based on Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D70.
