Juniper Networks® Field Guide and Reference

Book Description

Juniper Networks® creates and deploys high-performance routing platforms used by many of the world's largest service providers. Written by the leading experts and technical writers at Juniper Networks, the Juniper Networks® Field Guide and Reference is the definitive practical guide and reference to Juniper Networks hardware and software. This comprehensive book culls and condenses nearly six thousand pages of technical documentation, field alerts, technical FAQs, and more into a single convenient and accessible resource. It provides essential information for anyone designing, building, installing, configuring, and operating scalable IP networks.

You will find in-depth information about JUNOS™ software, Juniper Networks routers, system management, interfaces, security, and VPNs. All the latest Juniper Networks technologies and releases are covered, including JUNOS 5.4, the T640 routing node and the T320 router, and all M-series routers. Other topics covered include:

  • Router architecture and hardware components, including the T-series routing platforms and M-series routers

  • CLI configuration and system management with SNMP

  • Router interfaces, including Ethernet, SONET/SDH, tunnel, and channelized interfaces

  • Class of service (CoS)

  • IP Security (IPSec)

  • Routing policy and firewall filters

  • Routing protocols, including IS-IS, OSPF, RIP, BGP, PIM, DVMRP, IGMP, SAP, SDP, MSDP, and multicast scoping

  • IPv6, including IPv4-to-IPv6 transition mechanisms

  • Various MPLS applications

  • Virtual Private Networks, covering Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs

In addition, this pragmatic guide features sample configurations that come directly from the Juniper Networks testing labs, as well as a summary of all the critical JUNOS software monitoring commands.

Whether you work with Juniper Networks products as a network engineer, administrator, or operator—or if you are just interested in learning how to build scalable multivendor IP networks—you will want to keep this thorough resource close at hand.
