This networking fundamentals book describes how a Junos device is able to forward a packet between networks using either static routes or any of five popular routing protocols: RIP, OSPF, IS-IS, iBGP, and eBGP. Learn how to route the Internet Protocol in a day.
This book is intended for network engineers who have either just begun their career in network engineering or have worked in an environment where only one routing protocol was used, so they are unfamiliar with the other routing protocols in the Junos OS.
If you are familiar with how the Junos CLI works, you can follow along with how to configure not only static routing, but the popular routing protocols: RIP, OSPF, IS-IS, iBGP, and eBGP. This book discusses each routing protocol’s unique traits and then shows you how to implement them in the Junos OS for any Juniper Networks device.
The authors, both Juniper Ambassadors, draw from their many years of network administration to provide examples and configuration samples that you will likely enounter in real-world networks.
“The network industry is undergoing a revolution whereby the boundaries between server and network engineer are becoming blurred. Now, more than ever before, it is important for all to have a good grounding in the fundamentals of routing. This Day One book on the fundamentals of routing from Martin Brown and Nick Ryce, along with the entire Day One library as a whole, fills that gap.” - Perry Young, Senior VP, Cyber Security Ops, undisclosed firm, JNCIP-SEC/SP/ENT
