JNCIP-SP Bundle Part One

Course Number:


Network engineers, support personnel, reseller support, and others responsible for implementing Juniper products in a Service provider environment or aiming to become certified engineers will find the most value in this course.
Course Duration:
4 Days


Students should have already attained their JNCIA-JUNOS certification which includes the technology learned in the IJOS: Introduction to the Junos Operating System and the JRE: Junos Routing Essentials courses. Students should also have the skills taught in the Juniper courses: JIR: Junos Intermediate Routing and JSPX: Junos Service Provider Switching.

Course Objectives:

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 caveat 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
