In this intermediate Juniper skills training, Anthony Sequeira familiarizes learners with using the IS-IS protocol for enabling smarter routing decisions on your networks.
Mastering Juniper networks isn’t simply a matter of knowing Juniper software and hardware, but also knowing the underlying networking principles like IS-IS. In IS-IS, the routing domain can be split into smaller areas that have some routers working internally within that area, and others sending traffic to other areas. This training is a breakdown of IS-IS, its areas and systems, when to use it, and how it works on a Juniper network.
Once you're done with this Juniper skills training, you'll know how to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot IS-IS levels, interfaces, and adjacencies, routing policy applications, and troubleshooting tools.
For managers with Juniper products, this Juniper training can be used for on-boarding new network engineers, as a Juniper reference resource, or curated into individual or team training plans.
IS-IS: What You Need to Know
This Juniper training covers topics about IS-IS protocol including:
- A deep understanding of the IS-IS protocol and operation
- Managing adjacencies and neighbors within IS-IS
- Operating protocol data units (PDU) on IS-IS
- Using designated intermediate systems (DIS) with IS-IS
- Measuring and reporting IS-IS metrics
- Configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting IS-IS
Who Should Take IS-IS Training?
This IS-IS training is considered engineer-level Juniper training, which means it was designed for network engineers. This IS-IS skills course is designed for network engineers with three to five years of experience with network infrastructure.
New or aspiring network engineers. Network engineers just starting out in the job have many different opportunities for specialization ahead of them. Carving out your niche by proving expertise in IS-IS protocol operations can set you apart from your peers. If your company or workcenter uses Juniper networks or devices, having a handle on the IS-IS protocol can help make sure you’re never lost in administering or updating it.
Experienced network engineers. The Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) is a specialized routing protocol commonly used by large service provider networks. For that reason, network engineers with a few years of experience will need to eventually demonstrate proficiency in IS-IS routers and switches to be considered experts in their field. With this training, you’ll gain mastery over IS-IS and feel comfortable with a Juniper network of any scale.
