This Juniper Junos Routing Policy and Firewall Filters training prepares learners to take direct control of the tables, routes, and decisions that decide what packets go where on your network, optimizing your network's security and efficiency.
All computer networks depend on policies and filters on their network devices to regulate what packets go where. Some of those policies and filters are set up by default, some can be optimized by programs and tools, but by and large the work of configuring them falls on network administrators.
This Junos Routing Policy and Firewall Filters training drills down and focuses on the policies and filters that regulate a Juniper network's traffic. After taking it, you'll understand the difference between how network devices know where to send traffic so that it reaches its destination, and how network devices know what sorts of packets are permitted out different interfaces to keep the network safe.
After finishing the videos in this Junos training, you'll know how to take direct control of the tables, routes, and decisions that decide what packets go where on your network, optimizing your network's security and efficiency.
For supervisors, this Juniper training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Juniper reference resource.

Who Should Take Junos Routing Policy and Firewall Filters Training?
This Junos Routing Policy and Firewall Filters training is considered associate-level Juniper training, which means it was designed for network administrators. This Junos skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with Junos security concepts and experienced network administrators looking to validate their Juniper skills.
New or aspiring network administrators. If you're a brand new network administrator, the nature of policies and filters is one of the most fundamental parts of administration you could ever master. At first glance, they're similar: they're the rules that routers use to move packets. But configuring policies and filters are fundamentally different skills, and this Junos Routing Policy and Firewall Filters training will make sure you can do both effortlessly.
Experienced network administrators. If you've been working as a network administrator, this training might sound simplistic at first. And if you feel perfectly comfortable with how Juniper devices implement routing policies and firewall filters, it might be. But if you've ever struggled with how to get in and configure them, with this Junos Routing Policy and Firewall Filters training, you'll feel more confident on Juniper networks as you move ahead in your career.
