Juniper Now Offers Industry’s First Comprehensive Training for the Full Network Lifecycle
Public Company Information:
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Juniper Networks(NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced Juniper Design Training and Certification curriculum, a new offering that teaches best practices and new techniques across network design, including software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).
Networks are in a constant state of change. The emergence of automation has fundamentally changed how networks can and will be designed. Network designers and administrators are now facing myriad complicated considerations and options when designing a network, many that did not exist just a few years ago. Further, the benefits that can be realized from SDN and NFV have raised the stakes in ensuring a well-designed network.
Juniper’s Design Curriculum includes a portfolio of trainings and a set of level-specific design certifications on the latest approaches, resources and tools that enable companies to build, expand, secure and automate their networks. The trainings range in topic from the fundamentals of network design to specific design requirements of data center and WAN networks. Together with its network engineering and support-focused courses, Juniper is offering training on the full network lifecycle – from initial design all the way through ongoing maintenance.
The new program is available to all existing customers, partners and IT professionals considering network changes or looking to enhance their skillset. Juniper’s Design Curriculum also offers specialized trainings for customers in verticals such as financial services, cloud services, national government and other customers with complex data center environments or heightened security concerns.
- The first course in the Design Curriculum, Juniper Networks Design Fundamentals, is available now.
- The first certification, Juniper Networks Certified Design Associate (JNCDA), is now available for registration.
- There will be three levels of certifications available: design associate, specialist and professional.
“Design and architecture knowledge are key components in solving IT-based business problems. Many people design networks based on their limited career experience, but adapting the correct design for the situation requires that you be skilled in the art of architecture and design. Architecture and design courses like these from Juniper fill the gap in knowledge that potential architects have. This enables the architect to select the right tool for the job at hand.”
- Gary Hauser, principle architect, Copper River Information Technology, Juniper Networks Ingenious Champion/Partner Technical Advisory Board Member
“It's fantastic that Juniper now has a design certification track, along with corresponding training courses. The existing technical courses and certifications have always built core knowledge on the technologies and configuration of networks, but there was a need for proper network architecture and design to go along with it. I am looking forward to taking the classes.”
- Chris Jones, SDN engineer, SDN Essentials
“The Juniper Design Curriculum is a great way for me to learn the depth and breadth of the available configurations and technologies for Junos implementations. The new design track promises to provide the big picture and context to select the right features for the job and provide a solid set of principles to guide the discovery of the business needs to drive that design.”
- Steve Puluka, senior IP engineer, DQE Communications
“I’m really looking forward to completing this new track to ensure that my understanding of design principles and best practices are on par with what the industry expects.”
- Nick Ryce, senior network architect, Fluency Communications
“Today’s IT staff are managing complex, constantly changing networks. At the same time, they are facing an overwhelming range of options to improve network efficiency and cost-effectiveness through automation. Juniper’s Design Curriculum offers customers and partners an opportunity to learn directly from Juniper how to design the best network for their business as well as receive guidance on how to best take advantage of the range of network options available.”
