2013 in Review: 10 Popular New Documents from iX
Dec 31, 2013

As the year comes to a close and we reflect on all the new titles we released, we want to take the time to thank YOU. Your comments, suggestions, and feedback helped us to BUILD THE BEST information experience possible. 


In this post we are sharing our top 10 publications from 2013 (plus one bonus!) including configuration guides, design guides, and new network configuration examples (NCEs):


#1: Implementation Guide – Broadband Edge Solution



This Design and Implementation Guide (DIG) discusses broadband edge functionality on a Juniper router, focusing on the incremental considerations for deploying broadband services into an existing network. It introduces key concepts related to broadband services and provides configuration examples. It is intended for Juniper customers and personnel looking to understand or deploy residential broadband edge (BBE) services.


For more information, see the Implementation Guide – Broadband Edge Solution.


#2: NCE: Configuring Service Provider Wi-Fi 


This NCE presents configuration examples for mobile and fixed-line service providers to use wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11 to offload mobile data traffic from the macro cellular network. It also presents step-by-step procedures for configuring the Juniper Networks service provider Wi-Fi solution and individual network elements to simultaneously deliver both open Wi-Fi access (with a captive portal) as well as secure Wi-Fi access (with EAP-based authentication).


For more information, see Configuring Service Provider Wi-Fi.


#3: NCE: Configuring SRX Chassis Clusters for High Availability


This NCE describes different high availability deployment scenarios for high-end SRX Series devices. It also provides a step-by-step configuration example for each of the different scenarios. 


For more information, see Configuring SRX Chassis Clusters for High Availability.


#4: O'Reilly Book: Juniper SRX Series



This complete field guide is the perfect hands-on reference for deploying, configuring, and operating Juniper’s SRX Series networking device. Authors Brad Woodberg and Rob Cameron provide field-tested best practices for getting the most out of SRX deployments, based on their extensive field experience.


For more information, see Juniper SRX Series.


#5: Routing Policy Feature Guide for Routing Devices



This guide provides an overview of both the routing policy concepts and routing policy framework for devices running Junos OS. A routing policy is a mechanism in Junos OS that allows you to modify the routing policy framework to suit your needs. The routing policy framework is a collection of Junos OS policies that allows you to control flows of routing information and packets. 


For more information, see the Routing Policy Feature Guide for Routing Devices.


#6: NCE: Configuring Routing Policy in an ISP Network



This NCE describes routing policies and the advantages of using them in an ISP network. It also provides a step-by-step example of how to configure routing policies in a typical ISP network.


For more information, see Configuring Routing Policy in an ISP Network.


#7: NCE: Configuring CoS for FCoE Transit Switch Traffic Across a MC-LAG



This document describes how to configure class of service (CoS) for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) transit switch traffic across a multichassis link aggregation group (MC-LAG) that connects two QFX Series switches.


For more information, see Configuring CoS to Support an MC-LAG on an FCoE Transit Switch.


#8: Universal Access and Aggregation Mobile Backhaul Design Guide


This guide provides the information you need to design a mobile backhaul (MBH) network solution in the access and aggregation domain (often referred to as just the access domain in this document) based on Juniper Networks software and hardware platforms. The universal access domain extends from the customer in the mobile, residential, or business—Carrier Ethernet Services (CES) and Carrier Ethernet Transport (CET)—segment to the universal edge. The focus of this guide is the mobile backhaul (MBH) network for customers in the mobile segment.


For more information, see the Universal Access and Aggregation Mobile Backhaul Design Guide.


#9: Learn About Infographic: 10 Ways You Can Increase WLAN Security



This infographic helps you to better understand WLAN security best practices, and it aids you in deploying WLAN with confidence.


For more information, see the Day One Posters.


#10: NCE: Configuring a Dual Stack That Uses NDRA and DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation over PPPoE


This document describes how service providers can implement IPv4 and IPv6 dual stack in a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) subscriber access network. It also provides a step-by-step configuration example for configuring a dual stack that uses Neighbor Discovery Router Advertisement (NDRA) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) prefix delegation over PPPoE. You learn how to add two types of IPv6 addressing to your subscriber network, and then how to create a dual stack implementation that uses these types of addressing. 


For more information, see Configuring a Dual Stack That Uses NDRA and DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation over PPPoE.


#11 (BONUS!): TechWiki



While the TechWiki isn't a document in the traditional sense, it does serve as a collaboration space and knowledge base for rapidly developing projects. Think of it as a community-driven documentation repository. If you haven't already seen it, check it out! It's pretty darn cool if we do say so ourselves (guess we just did!). 


For more information, see the TechWiki.


What were your favorite publications?

We have only captured a few of the popular new offerings that we published in 2013, so please share your own recommended reading list (new or old favorites!) in the comments!


What can you expect in 2014? 

Next year we plan to continue making progress on the following:


  • Increasing the accuracy and depth of our content
  • Providing content that shows how to best implement Juniper’s products: more design guides, white papers, and scenario-based examples
  • Improving accessibility by enhancing the organization of our content and improving search results

We hope that 2013 has shown that we are heading in the right direction! In 2014, we hope to partner with you on further developing and fine-tuning your information experience.
