Protocol Independent Routing in Junos OS

by Martin Brown

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.

What you'll learn

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.

Martin's IT career goes back to 1993 and while he was involved with Apple Macintosh computers, and had the pleasure of using DEC VAX terminals. Back then, hand held literally meant picking the terminal up by it's carry handle to move it to the other side of the desk and touch screen meant getting a static shock. Of course, the world has moved on a great deal since then and Martin is proud to be at the cutting edge of network and internetwork technology, working with devices from Cisco, F5, Chec... more
