This two-day course provides students with advanced class-of-service (CoS) knowledge and configuration examples. The course begins with an overview of CoS before going into classification, policing, scheduling, and rewriting. The course then covers class-based forwarding and finishes with case studies that reenforce topics.
Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the JUNOS Software and monitoring basic device operations.
- Understand the history and evolution of CoS.
- Identify the CoS fields in various packet headers.
- List the CoS processing stages on devices running the Junos OS.
- Identify the default CoS settings on devices running the Junos OS.
- Configure and verify behavior aggregate (BA) and multifield (MF) classification.
- Configure and verify two-color and tricolor marking policers.
- Configure and verify schedulers and their components.
- Configure and verify the multiple levels of hierarchical schedulers.
- Configure and verify packet header rewriting.
- Configure and verify class-based forwarding.
- Create a CoS configuration based on a set of design requirements.

This is an advanced level course.
Students should have intermediate-level networking knowledge and an understanding of the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also have familiarity with the Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) protocol.
Students should have already attended Introduction to JUNOS Operating Systems (IJOS) , JUNOS Routing Essentials (JRE) and the Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR) courses or have equivalent knowledge provided in these titles.
This course is available as open-enrollment Classroom event, instructor-led Live Virtual Class, REAL-ILT™ or as part of a custom Onsite Training for up to 8 students.
