JNCIP-SP Online Training
This intermediate Juniper JNCIP-SP training prepares learners to take the JN0-663 exam, which is the one required exam to earn the Juniper Networks Certified Professional: Service Provider (JNCIP-SP) certification.
This Juniper Networks Certified Professional: Service Provider (JNCIP-SP) training is intended for advanced networking professionals -- it’s meant to validate more advanced routing and switching knowledge and abilities than the specialist-level certification.
