This two-day course provides a detailed coverage of IPv6 operations including neighbor discovery, ICMPv6, IPv6 protocol independent routing, OSPFv3, IS-IS, BGP, IPv6 multicast, transition methods, and troubleshooting methodology and commands supported by the Junos operating system (OS). 

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring Junos OS and in monitoring device and IPv6 protocol operations. 

This course uses Juniper Networks MX Series Routers for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running Junos OS. 

This course is based on Junos OS Release 22.2R1.9.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
