About this Course

Duration 3 Days

This three-day course provides students with the skills for configuration, operation, and implementation of JUNOS security platforms in a typical network environment.

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring JUNOS Software for JUNOS security platforms.


Students should have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocol suite.

Students should also either attend the Introduction to JUNOS Software (IJS) and JUNOS Routing Essentials (JRE) courses prior to attending this class, or have equivalent experience with JUNOS Software.
