Do you have an associate-level exam that is coming up for renewal? Rather than retaking the same exam, you can now recertify your certification by passing another associate-level exam.
On September 21, the Juniper Networks Certification Program (JNCP) updated the recertification policies to allow for cross-track recertification for all associate-level exams. If, for example, your JNCIA-Junos certification is coming up for renewal, consider attempting the JNCDA, the JNCIA-Cloud, or the new JNCIA-DevOps certification exam instead. If you pass, not only will you have earned a new certification, but you will have also recertified an existing one.
Plus, you’ll be on your way to earning our new JNCIAx3 or JNCIAx4 multi-certification badges.
Dell EMC Networking OS10 combines the best of Linux, open computing, and networking to advance open networking disaggregation. OS10 is a transformational software platform which provides networking hardware abstraction through a common set of APIs.
You can enable consistency across compute and network resources for your system operator (sysops) groups that require server-like manageability, as well as leverage your existing network conguration.
You can simulate OS10 devices using OS10 VM appliances. The OS10 VM appliances execute the same software deployed on OS10-enabled hardware devices, with the exception of the hardware abstraction layer. The OS10 VM hardware abstraction layer simulates hardware devices in a VM environment.
All CLI commands as well as RESTCONF and SNMP interfaces are available in the OS10 simulation environment. You can build sandbox environments to learn open networking concepts, and prototype network operations and scripts risk-free.
OS10 simulation features
All OS10 CLI commands and north-bound interfaces (RESTCONF, SNMP) are available including:
System management (SSH, AAA, DHCP, and so on)
L3 data plane and control plane (using Linux functionality)
Partial support for L2 data plane and control plane (using Linux functionality):
OS10 feature limitations
No ACL or QoS support (NPU is not available) — ACL and QoS CLI commands are available (but have no eﬀect on trafc)
Limited L2 functionality (NPU is not available on simulator) — no spanning-tree control plane functionality
No breakout mode for simulated ports
Defaults to S6000-ON hardware platform simulation
Workstation or laptop with 16 GB RAM or larger recommended
64-bit x86 CPU with 2 GHz or faster core speed (dual-core or larger recommended)
SDD with 64 GB available space
Virtualization environment — you can use either Windows, Linux, or VMware ESXi as a host system for the GNS3 Server VM environment
VMware ESXi server recommended for large network simulation
Juniper vLabs is a web-based platform that lets you try out Juniper products and features at any time, in a no-risk environment. Leveraging the vMX, vQFX, and vSRX product lines, vLabs provide a variety of standalone devices and preset topologies. Reservable in advance or on-demand, vLabs are free to access and open to everyone.
Juniper vLabs takes a “read-it-then-try-it” approach to learning. This offering guides you from product and solutions documentation to a live environment where you can get hands-on experience.
