Cisco is climbing fast, Fortinet faster, PaloAlto still leading and filling their gaps in portfolio and Check Point released finally the R80 for gateways. I predict 4 Leaders next year, it will be a nice race to watch!

Check Point Software Technologies and Palo Alto Networks still Leaders, since Cisco acquired Sourcefire and have launch FirePOWER we will see changes in Leadership i guess. SDN is another hot topic that will bring challenges for customers and vendors also.

JunOS Cup 2014 Game Over

Foi sem duvida um desafio interessante, e estive muito perto de algumas das soluções propostas pela Juniper :). Sem duvida que algumns dos desafios eram mesmo tricky!

Resumindo ganhei um voucher para uma certificação e 25 VM units para usar no Junosphere. De qualquer forma parabéns aos vencedores!

Estas foram as Flags ganhas no torneio, para um principiante em Juniper nada mau :)

Update 17 Julho 2014

Foram classificados 3 vencedores com o mesmo numero de pontos, entre eles estava um Português. O desafio final Antarctica (Type: Enterprise Difficulty: High) foi decisivo para encontrar  o vencedor.

Juniper Certificações Junho 2013

A pirâmide da Juniper Networks Certification Program (JNCP) divide-se em 4 níveis, sendo que o nível JNCIA, o básico. Este pretende introduzir aos Network Engineers as foundations de como operar/gerir as plataformas Juniper. O JNCP está divido em 3 tracks essencialmente mas existem algumas certificações relacionadas exclusivamente com produtos Juniper.

 

juniper-certification-levels

Há data de hoje, as tracks são as seguintes:

Level Junos Tracks
Enterprise Routing
& Switching
Junos Security Service Provider Routing
& Switching
JNCIE JNCIE-ENT JNCIE-SEC JNCIE-SP
JNCIP JNCIP-ENT JNCIP-SEC JNCIP-SP
JNCIS JNCIS-ENT JNCIS-SEC JNCIS-SP
JNCIA JNCIA-Junos JNCIA-Junos JNCIA-Junos

Foram recentemente introduzidas as Tracks específicas de Suporte:

Level Junos Support Tracks
Enterprise Routing
& Switching Support
Junos Security Support Service Provider Routing
& Switching Support
JNCSP JNCSP-ENT JNCSP-SEC JNCSP-SP

 

O JNCP disponibiliza algumas tracks orientadas exclusivamente ao produto, estas são:

Level Product and Technology Tracks
E-Series Firewall/ VPN IDP Junos Pulse
Access Control
Junos Pulse
Secure Access
QFabric Wireless
LAN
WX Series
JNCIE
JNCIP JNCIP-E
JNCIS JNCIS-E JNCIS-FWV JNCIS-AC JNCIS-SA JNCIS-QF JNCIS-WLAN
JNCIA JNCIA-E JNCIA-IDP JNCIA-WX

Este é sempre o dilema de qualquer Network Engineer independentemente do seu role (Arquitectura/Design/Suporte/..), de “quando renovar a minha certificação”? A semelhança de outros fabricantes é possível renovar de uma forma inteligente, mas fazendo o próximo nível ficando assim com as anteriores válidas. Esta é também a forma de a Juniper (ou qualquer vendor) “empurrar” para o topo da pirâmide. No JNCP a validade de qualquer certificação é de 2 anos.

A grande diferença por exemplo da Cisco neste capitulo é que para renovar por exemplo o JNCIE independentemente da track é necessário renovar o JNCIP da mesma track. Aqui a Cisco usa uma metodologia diferente pelo que para renovar o CCIE em qualquer track basta efetuar por exemplo um segundo CCIE Wrriten/ e ou Lab de outro track, ou efetuar o exame Written especifico de renovação.

Não é possível realizar diretamente o JNCIE, pelo que será necessário adquirir as certificações intermédias até ao topo da pirâmide (JNCIE).

Status possíveis da certificação:

Status Timeframe Eligibilities
Active Two Years
  • Eligible for all benefits
  • Qualify under the Partner certification compliance requirements
Inactive One year following the Active period
  • Can be recertified
  • Are not eligible for benefits
  • Do not qualify under the Partner certification compliance requirements
  • Can still be used to fulfill prerequisite requirements for written exams
  • Cannot be used to fulfill prerequisite requirements for JNCP Lab Exams
Expired At the end of the Inactive period
  • Cannot be recertified
  • Are not eligible for benefits
  • Do not qualify under the Partner certification compliance requirements
  • Cannot be used to fulfill any prerequisite requirements
  • Candidates with an expired certification must start again at the bottom of that certification track

Renovações e respetiva correspondência:
