  • Price: $3,800.00
  • Certifications: JNCIP-SP
  • Exams: JN0-661
Course Overviewremove_circle_outline

The JNCIP-SP Certification curriculum includes 14 days of training that covers technology aspects that meet the Junos Professional Certification tier for the Service Provider. Students attending this event series will take part in 5 courses (after meeting prerequisites) as part of the certification, including Routing and Switching technology and protocols running Junos Software.

Key topics include user interface options with a heavy focus on the command-line interface, configuration tasks typically associated with the initial setup of devices, interface configuration basics, secondary system configuration, and the basics of operational monitoring and maintenance of devices running JUNOS Software. Students will also learn routing principles and concepts, configuring policies and firewall filters, and class of service (CoS).

This Bundle prepares students for the JNCIP-SP Certification exam, whose topics are based on the content of these courses:

  1. JCOS: Junos Class of Service
  2. JMR: Junos Multicast Routing

Part 2 of the JNCIP-SP Bundle includes the following courses, which are taken separately.

Course Objectivesadd_circle_outline

This series of courses provides students an overview of Service Provider switching concepts such configuring various OSPF area types, implementing IS-IS routing policies, implementing advanced BGP peers, configuring Class of Service, and detailed coverage of multicast protocols including Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), Protocol Independent Multicast-Dense Mode (PIM-DM), Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP). This course also covers Routing topics that are germane to the JNCIP-SP Certification exam now available at Pearson-VUE testing centers.

Refer to each course for detailed content, a general outline of course content includes:

  • 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
  • Identify the need for reverse path forwarding (RPF) in multicast
  • Configure and monitor IGMP
  • Describe rendezvous point (RP) discovery options
  • Configure and monitor PIM dense and sparse modes
  • Configure and monitor rendezvous point discovery mechanisms
  • Configure and monitor MSDP
  • Describe the basic requirements, benefits, and caveats of SSM
  • Configure and monitor SSM
  • Describe the default PIM sparse mode information distribution
  • Identify the role of a policy in controlling MSDP message advertisement
  • Explain how to use a policy to scope multicast groups
Target Audienceadd_circle_outline
