Course Overview

The JNCIS-SP Certification curriculum includes 6 days of training that covers technology aspects that meet the Junos Specialist Certification tier for the Service Provider. Students attending this series will take part in 3 courses (after meeting prerequisites) as part of the certification, including Routing and Switching technology and protocols running Junos Software. This two-class bundle prepares students for the JNCIS-SP Certification exam, whose topics are based on the content of these courses:
  1. Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR)
  2. Junos Service Provider Switching (JSPX)
Part 2 of the JNCIS-SP Bundle includes the JMF - Junos MPLS Fundamentals course, which is taken separately.
  • Junos MPLS Fundamentals (JMF)

Course Objectives

This course provides students an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, provider backbone bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). This course also covers Routing topics that are germane to the JNCIS-SP Certification exam now available at VUE testing centers. Refer to each course for detailed content, a general outline of course content includes:
  • Configure and monitor static routing
  • Configure and monitor OSPF
  • Write and apply a routing policy
  • Write and apply a firewall filter
  • Configuration for unicast reverse path forwarding (RPF)
  • Implement and verify proper operation of CoS
  • Configure and monitor static, aggregate, and generated routes
  • Configure and share routes between routing instances
  • Implement and monitor Layer 3 load balancing
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot OSPF
  • Configure and monitor BGP
  • Configure and monitor GRE and IP-IP tunnels
  • Configure and monitor high-availability features
  • Configure and monitor routing for IPv6 environments
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot IS-IS
  • Configure Ethernet frame filtering
  • Configure VLAN tagging
  • Implement a virtual switch
  • Configure and monitor provider bridging
  • Configure and monitor Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), and the VLAN Spanning Tree
  • Bridge protocol data unit (BPDU), loop, and root protection
  • Link Fault Management (LFM)
  • Configure and monitor Ethernet Ring Protection (ERP)
  • Configure and troubleshoot RSVP-signaled and LDP-signaled LSPs
  • Configure a BGP extended community
  • Configure a Layer 3 VPN using a dynamic CE-PE routing protocol
