Having a fast network is great, but speed wont help if you also need to be able to connect to other networks. This course discusses the basics of routed networks and introduces routing features that work with a variety of routing protocols.
Whilst having a fast network is key to ensuring data is transmitted around a corporation as quickly and smoothly as possible, having the fastest network speed possible doesn't help if you also need to be able to connect to other networks or even the Internet. In order to to do this, you need to be able to route traffic. This course, Protocol Independent Routing in Junos OS, along with the other courses in the JNCIS-ENT series, is designed to educate and prepare network engineers for working in and securing enterprise environments. This course marks a departure from the previous courses where you studied switched networks as you moved to an environment where the network becomes routed. In this cours, you will learn how to create backup static routes in Junos OS, load balance traffic across multiple network paths, create virtual routers using routing instances, and more. By the end of this course, you’ll not only have a better understanding of how Junos OS based devices make routing decisions but you’ll also have a greater awareness of some of the routing features available to network engineers to optimize routing within a network.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Martin Brown, and welcome to my course, JNCIS-ENT Protocol-independent Routing. I am a network security engineer at a Tier 1 service provider. In this course, we are going to discuss the basics of routing within the Junos operating system, and we're going to configure routing features that work with a variety of routing protocols. Some of the major topics that we will cover include creating backup static routes in the Junos operating system, summarizing routes in Junos operating system using aggregate and generated routes, load balancing traffic across multiple network paths, and creating virtual routers using routing instances. By the end of this course, you'll not only have a better understanding of how Junos OS based devices make routing decisions, but you'll also have a greater awareness of some of the routing features available to network engineers in order to optimize routing within the network. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of configuring Junos OS, the Junos OS configuration hierarchy, and the basics of IP addressing. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about beginning to build a routed network using Junos OS based devices with a JNCIS-ENT Protocol-independent Routing course, at Pluralsight.
