The JNCIP-ENT Certification Bundle is a five-day event covering technology aspects that meet the JUNOS Professional Certification tier for the Enterprise Network Engineer. Students attending this course will participate in two classes as part of the certification, covering Junos Routing and Switching technologies.
Students will learn the tools required for implementing, monitoring and troubleshooting Layer 3 components in an enterprise network. Detailed coverage of OSPF, BGP, class of service (CoS) and multi-cast is strongly emphasized. Ample time is also dedicated to virtual LAN (VLAN) operations, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) and VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (VSTP), monitoring and troubleshooting tools and features, authentication and access control for Layer 2 networks, IP telephony features and class of service (CoS) on the Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches.

Audience: Network engineers, technical support personnel, reseller support engineers, and others responsible for implementing and/or maintaining the Juniper Networks products covered in this course.
Course Duration: 5 days
Prerequisites:

Students should have a strong level of TCP/IP networking and security knowledge. It is recommend participants also attend the Introduction to the Junos Operating System (IJOS), Junos Routing Essentials (JRE), Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR) and the Junos Enterprise Switching (JEX) courses prior to attending this class.
