Intermediate System to Intermediate System is the routing protocol of choice for most large service providers. This course teaches you the basics of IS-IS, the CLNS routed protocol, and how to configure IS-IS on Junos OS based network devices.
Most corporate networks prefer to use OSPF to advertise subnets to other routers on the network. Service providers and ISPs however, prefer to use a routing protocol that can scale beyond OSPF. In this course, Junos OS and the IS-IS Routing Protocol, you’ll learn foundational knowledge of the routing protocol known as Intermediate System to Intermediate System or IS-IS. First, you'll explore the basics of IS-IS. Next, you’ll delve into the underlying CLNS routed protocol. Finally, you’ll learn how IS-IS enabled routers share data. When you’re finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of the Intermediate System to Intermediate System routing protocol needed to support and configure the routing protocol preferred by service providers the world over. Software required: Junos OS version 12.1 or higher.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Martin Brown, and welcome to my course, Junos OS and the IS-IS Routing Protocol. In addition to being an author for Pluralsight, I am also a network security engineer working for a tier 1 service provider. In this course we will take an in-depth look at the dynamic routing protocol, which is preferred by service providers and internet service providers the world over, intermediate system to intermediate system. Some of the major topics that we will cover include an overview of the CLNS routed protocol, how IS-IS neighbors form an adjacency, the concept of IS-IS levels and areas and how to configure intermediate system to intermediate system on Junos OS-based devices. By the end of this course, you'll not only have a better understanding of how IS-IS has been developed over the years to make a very scalable routing protocol, but you'll also have a greater understanding of why service providers choose to use IS-IS over OSPF as their internal gateway protocol. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of configuring Junos OS, the Junos OS configuration hierarchy, the basics of IP addressing, and how routers make routing decisions. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about configuring the service providers' favorite dynamic routing protocol on Junos OS-based devices, with the Junos OS and the IS-IS Routing Protocol course at Pluralsight.
