- Course info
This intermediate Juniper MPLS training prepares network administrators to configure MPLS on Juniper devices, creating more efficient and custom traffic patterns without sacrificing network security.
Multiprotocol Label Switching, or MPLS, is a technology often seen in carrier networks and corporate WANs. MPLS not only helps ensure packets get where they're destined, but that they get there via a reasonable route — potentially bypassing complicated routes that were procedurally generated. Like the name suggests, MPLS depends on adding, replacing or stripping labels to each packet as it passes through the network, and each switch in the network knows what to do with each label.
MPLS isn't unique to Juniper devices, but the way that Juniper devices and the Junos OS manages MPLS is unique. A network administrator who takes this Juniper MPLS training will be better equipped to enhance bandwidth and improve uptime while avoiding some of the security pitfalls that untrained administrators can introduce.
For IT managers, this Juniper training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Juniper reference resource.
Juniper MPLS: What You Need to Know
This Juniper MPLS training has videos that cover multi-protocol label switching topics including:
- Configuring and managing MPLS on Juniper devices
- Recognizing how Junos is unique in handling MPLS traffic routing
- Engineering custom traffic patterns that bypass routing tables
- Improving user experience and bandwidth utilization
Who Should Take Juniper MPLS Training?
This Juniper MPLS training is considered associate-level Juniper training, which means it was designed for network administrators. This Juniper routing and switching skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with multi-protocol label switching and experienced network administrators looking to validate their Juniper skills.
New or aspiring network administrators. If you're brand new to the network administration game, you're likely familiar with MPLS from a theoretical perspective. The concept is simple enough, and with this Juniper MPLS training, you'll have a strong sense of how to go about configuring Juniper switches to use the protocol properly. Training in applying labels and configuring routes on network devices is a skill you'll depend on for the rest of your career.
Experienced network administrators. If you've been working as a network administrator for several years, you've probably run into MPLS a handful of times already -- maybe even tried your hand at configuring it. You might know that it can improve uptime, create scalable VPNs and reduce network congestion, but not know how to go about actually doing it. This Juniper MPLS training will put its configuration into your hands and make sure you're ready to get your hands dirty with labels.
