Junos Multicast Routing (JMR) Professional Certification Training

Junos Multicast Routing (JMR) Certification Training Course Overview

Enroll for 2-day Junos Multicast Routing(JMR) professional certification training course from Koenig Solutions accredited by Juniper. The Junos Multicast Routing (JMR) professional course is designed to provide students with detailed coverage of multicast protocols including Internet Group Protocol( IGMP), Protocol Independent Multicast Dense Mode ( PIM-DM), Protocol Independent Multicast Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), Bidirectional PIM, and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP).

Through a blend of hands-on labs and interactive lectures, you will learn how gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system and monitoring device and protocol operations. This course uses Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers 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.

Target Audience:

Candidate responsible for implementing, monitoring and troubleshooting multicast components in a service provider’s network.
