Seven New Courses in Routing and Switching Coming from CBT Nuggets

Routing and Switching

Overview:

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!
