Seven New Courses in Routing and Switching Coming from CBT Nuggets

Routing and Switching


I was thrilled to be tasked with creating new Nuggets on the topic of Enterprise Routing and Switching for Juniper networks. I quickly decided on two important approaches for this new training. First, I decided to break the topic up into seven courses so that I could really go into great detail. Second, I decided to separate these Nuggets clearly on theory, then Juniper specific stuff. This will be great for Cisco, Arista, HP, and other students that want to learn these important technologies, but could care very little for how specifics are carried out on Juniper gear.

The New Routing and Switching Courses:

Here is the breakdown of the new courses:

  • JNCIS-ENT(JN0-343)- Layer 2
  • JNCIS-ENT(JN0-343)- Layer 2 Security
  • JNCIS-ENT(JN0-343)- OSPF
  • JNCIS-ENT(JN0-343)- IS-IS
  • JNCIS-ENT(JN0-343)- BGP
  • JNCIS-ENT(JN0-343)- Protocol Independent Routing; Tunnels
  • JNCIS-ENT(JN0-343)- High Availability

So have you been longing for more training in some of these areas??? IS-IS perhaps??? These courses are really going to blow you away in their level of coverage, and overall approach.

The First Course – Layer 2:

What minimum topics list will we cover in the exciting first course on Layer 2 technologies? Check it out:

  • Identify the concepts, operation, and functionality of Layer 2 switching
  • Identify the concepts, benefits, and functionality of VLANs
  • Demonstrate knowledge of how to configure, monitor and troubleshoot Layer 2 switching and VLANs
  • Identify the concepts, benefits, operation, and functionality of the Spanning Tree Protocol
  • Demonstrate knowledge of how to configure and monitor STP and RSTP

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to boost your knowledge of core routing and switching topics!

  1. Awesome! Can’t wait!)
    It will be great to cover virtual chassis concept.
    And something like exam walk through for jncis-ent/sec

    1. Careful – there are two exams you can choose from for this cert – you take one or the other – not both. One is for the older switch commands and one is for the newer. I am teaching the “classic” commands, but I show how to easily convert if you want the new commands.

  2. Hi Anthony et all,

    On a cluster SRX240H, I connected port ge-0/0/15 and ge-5/0/15 (reth0 vlan-tagging) to 2 virtual chassis EX4200 port ge-0/0/23 and ge-1/0/23 (ae0 lacp and trunk) respectively. Weird things, it’s only see the first VLAN. I did some digging on the net and some said the HA/redundancy between SRX240 clusters and EX4200 won’t work. I have upgraded EX4200s to 15.1R1.8 and SRXes to 12.1X46-D40.2. what have I’ve done wrong? Thanks for your time and your help.

    1. Hmmmm – I will be looking into this more during my Redundancy course coming up. Stay tuned. Thanks!

  3. hello anthony,
    watching ccie R&S layer 3 video. i must say am not really impressed with the way you handle your teaching. like you focus more on command line and not really teaching the technology.

    i was watching multicast and all i could gather was how to run the commands but not understanding the technology like when compared to former IPX instructor MAcko teaching of multicast( he broke it all down step by step and detailed.

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback. The Multicast section of that course is taught by another former instructor here at CBT Nuggets and I will be replacing it soon. I will keep your feedback in mind when I re-record it!

  4. Hello Anthony!

    I would like to have your opinion on this, I’m working on my ccie rs,and I’m about 40% there, but i also want to get mcse and lately you have done great thing with Juniper, so if you were me what would you do? Go all the way to ccie or get mcse and juniper first and then tackle your ccie?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi Rainy! The answer is – it depends! What do you plan on doing with your career. For example, if you are going to work for some rare all-Cisco enterprise, or maybe Cisco themselves, then the CCIE R&S might be the way to go. But if you are going to be working with many different technologies, like most engineers today, then a mix of skills will be more valuable. Perhaps something like CCNP R&S, JNCIS, MCSE, etc! Try and determine what you are most passionate about, and where you would most like to take your career!

      1. Thank you for spending the time answer my question Anthony, indeed it was the one i found most useful, i guess that’s is hard to find an all cisco hardware company in my place it is a mix mostly so I think the list that you suggest is awesome

        Again, thank you Anthony
