Juniper/Junos MPLS Fundamentals (JMF)

Junos MPLS Fundamentals (JMF) Certification Training Course Overview

This course is structured to provide participants with a concrete foundation on Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). After getting introduction on the concepts such as MPLS forwarding and the structure of the MPLS header, the course will go into the configuration and operation of the two main label distribution protocols, RSVP and LDP. Special emphasis is given to the central topics of traffic engineering and MPLS traffic protection, including fast reroute, link/node protection, and LDP loop-free alternate. The lab session will utilize Juniper Networks vMX Series devices using the Junos OS Release 19.2R1.8, and it is also applicable to other MX Series devices.


  • Anyone who is responsible for configuring and monitoring devices running the Junos OS

Course Prerequisites

  • An intermediate level knowledge in networking and familiar with Junos OS command-line interface (CLI)
  • Participants to have knowledge in the following course: Introduction to the Junos Operating System (IJOS) (15501), Junos Routing Essentials (JRE), and Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR) (PT15503)

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to accomplish:

  • Describing the history and rationale for MPLS, and its basic terminology.
  • To explain about the MPLS label operations (push, pop, swap) and the concept of label-switched path (LSP).
  • Knowing about the configuration and verification of MPLS forwarding.
  • Describing about the functionalities and operation of RSVP and LDP.
  • Configuring and verify of RSVP-signaled and LDP-signaled LSPs.
  • Selecting and configuring the appropriate label distribution protocol for a given set of requirements.
  • Describing about the default Junos OS MPLS traffic engineering behavior.
  • To explain about the Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) extensions which is used to build the Traffic Engineering Database (TED).
  • Describing about the Constrained Shortest Path First (CSPF) algorithm, uses, and its path
  • Describing about the administrative groups and usages to influence path selection.
  • Describe the default traffic protection behavior of RSVP-signaled LSPs.
  • Explain the use of primary and secondary LSPs.
  • Describe the operation and configuration of fast reroute, node protection and LDP
  • Explain LSP priority and preemption.
  • Describe the behavior of fate sharing.
  • Describe how SRLG changes the CSPF algorithm when computing the path of a secondary LSP.
  • Explain how extended admin groups can be used to influence path selection.
  • Explain the purpose of several miscellaneous MPLS features.
