    Course Details


    This five-day course is designed to provide students with detailed coverage of OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and routing policy. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system and in monitoring device and protocol operations.


    This course uses Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS. This course is based on the Junos OS Release 12.3R3.4.


    Course Level:

    AJSPR is an advanced-level course.


    After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:

    • Describe the various OSPF link-state advertisement (LSA) types.
