Juniper J-IPv6: Junos IP version 6
2 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Routing & Switching

Course Details

The Juniper J-IPv6: Junos IP version 6 is a two-day course that provides skills in IPv6 operations including Neighbor Discovery, ICMPv6, IPv6 protocol-independent routing, OSPFv3, IS-IS, BGP, RIPng, transitions methods, and troubleshooting methodology and commands supported by the Junos operating system. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system and in monitoring device and IPv6 protocol operations. This course uses Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS. This course is based on Junos OS Release 12.1R1.9.


Course Level: J-IPV6 is an intermediate-level course.
