I recently had the privilege of hearing from the Juniper Networks Contrail product team at their offices in Sunnyvale. I was pleasantly surprised by the pragmatic and comprehensive approach they are taking in growing the product line. By the middle of this year (2018) there will be four distinct products; Contrail Networking, Contrail Security, Contrail […]
Juniper Networks routers and JUNOS related posts.
I’ve been a network engineer for well over a decade now. I’ve spent much of that time working on Juniper Networks devices. I even have a certification stating that I’m an expert. You might think that means I know it all by now. In fact it’s the opposite. As with anything, the more I learn, […]
I was recently flown out to Juniper HQ in Sunnyvale to record an on-camera interview about my two IPv6 Day One books for an episode of Junos Connect. Although the interview was completed in about 15 minutes after just 3 takes (two to be sure we had it, one due to someone walking through the […]
I was recently in Sunnyvale at Juniper HQ to record an interview for an IPv6 focused episode of Junos Connect (more on that laterhere). While there, Dan Backman and I recorded a couple of podcasts for distribution within Juniper. They’re not too overly boring so I figured I’d post them up here in case folks […]
Day One: Advanced IPv6 Configuration is a sequel to my first book, Day One: Exploring IPv6, and picks up right where it left off. Namely with BGP. In addition to a fairly thorough look at BGP (iBGP and eBGP / native IPv6 peering and sharing IPv6 routes over IPv4 peering), the book jumps into a few of the additional and often overlooked aspects of deploying an IPv6 network. This includes a look into topics and tools including VRRP, ICMPv6 rate limiting, CoS, IPv6 path MTU discovery, DHCPv6, zero hop-limit, Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) and Duplicate Address Detection (DAD).
Since my FAQ on the JNCIP-M continues to be one of the most popular posts I have written here on my blog, I guess it makes sense to compliment that with a similar FAQ for the JNCIE-M lab exam. For consistency, I will try and answer all the same questions I did for the JNCIP […]
Day One: Exploring IPv6 is a primer on IPv6 in JUNOS, it is targeted towards readers who are new to IPv6 or new to JUNOS but have a solid networking background. “This guide is easy to follow and is an easy-to-digest tutorial on getting your feet wet in IPv6.”
So you want to be a Juniper / JUNOS guru? Well, you’re going to need some solid experience gained through numerous hours in the CLI, but in the mean time, here are some of the best books to get you started: The classic O’Reilly JUNOS reference, a must for every network engineer’s desk, novice and […]
Juniper Networks recently added a new resource for those new to JUNOS, or looking to try new things with JUNOS. They are calling it the Day One series and it shows potential. The goal of each Day One guide is to provide clear, concise, and practical step-by-step instructions for completing common tasks. Day One booklets […]
