Juniper Service Provider Edge Security (JSPES)

Juniper Service Provider Edge Security (JSPES) 

This three-day course discusses edge security concepts for the service provider network. It discusses security for 5G networks on the main GPRS interfaces. Key topics include deploying an SRX Series device in different parts of the service provider network, implementing CGNAT, DDoS, malware inspection, command-and-control prevention, IPsec tunnels, 5G security, control plane hardening, and BGP hardening. Students will gain experience in configuring, testing, and troubleshooting the Junos OS through demonstrations and hands-on labs. This course is based on Junos OS 21.1R1.11.

Important Notice
  • On September 20, 2021, the Junos Edge Security Services (JESS) course will be replaced with a new three-day course, Juniper Service Provider Edge Security (JSPES) View course datasheet (pdf).
    The JESS-12A course will not be available after September 20, 2021.
