Course Description

Packet forwarding and routing are the fundamental functions of layer 3 network devices, and Junos OS includes sophisticated routing functionality. This course covers layer 3 basics, routing and packet forwarding, routing methodologies, and how to configure basic routing in Junos OS. This course is one of a series of Skillsoft courses that cover the objectives for Juniper Networks exam JN0-102. This exam completes the requirement for the certification Juniper Networks Certified Associate - Junos (JNCIA-Junos).
