I am a network security engineer . I have a deep knowledge on NetScreen products because I have work with these products for about 8 years. My knowledge is really deep in area of the ScreenOS software and related hardware. I was also certified on SSL VPN and IDP. Now is the time to start conversion the Juniper Networks / NetScreen certificates into proprietary Juniper Networks certification (JUNOS). The SRX line is getting started to replace the SSG and NetScreen line of the products, so it is the high time to get prepared and certified for the new line. It is also a big value that the lot of learning resources are available on the FastTrack Portal.


I am Waqas, a Network & Security Engineer from Pakistan with four years professional experience.


I have a bachelor degree in Computer Science. When I came out of the university, I have  done trainings on some CISCO courses like CCNA and CCNP to enter in a job market of Networking Professionals. But when I join my 1st company as a Trainee Network Engineer, I saw that there were no CISCO products... They are using Juniper’s M series and J series routers and ISG and SSG series Firewalls and now they are also using Juniper’s EX3200 and EX4200 Switches and SRX Products.


This situation is makes me uncomfortable and I thought Juniper language (JunOS) is very hard to learn because I have a CISCO background and Juniper terminologies and syntax are far different from Cisco. But when I start learning JunOS language I start loving Juniper products because Juniper give me more features in one box than any other vendor. At that time, Juniper just started their FAST TRACK program and it helps me very much to get certified in Juniper. I got lot of advantage from this FAST TRACK program because Study Guides and Lab Guides are available freely on Fast Track website. First I got certification in Routing and Switching (ER/EX Tracks). Then after some time I realize that they are not enough if I wanted to have a bright career and a top level job I must have to do more certification. Then I started to study Juniper firewalls and about M series Enterprise routers. Now I am JNCIA/JNCIS in both FWV and M series Track but my goal is to get certification of JNCIP/JNCIE.JNCIS-SP.


I found Juniper products highly technological, robust and meet the requirements of enterprise/medium/small level networks. I recommend Juniper products for all the IT organizations if they wanted to make highly robust network.

I love to get a free voucher of JNCIP or JNCIE or JNCIS-SP exam. It’s like a dream for me to get JNCIP or JNCIE certification.





Hi all, I am Sang Nguyen and now I am working for one of ISPs at Vietnam. I have 3 years experience working with Juniper equipments. My company is using Juniper routers and firewalls for our Core Network layer. Truly to say that, we are satisfied with Juniper products than other products. During the operation, we found that Juniper are very good, high stability, high performance, high security and not so hard to manage. Currently I had CCNP, JNCIS-ER certificate. So I want to reach JNCIS-SEC or JNCIS-SP.

Thank you very much for support us. I love Juniper.

Have a nice week!

Hello this is Agha Shabbir from Pakistan, working as a Pre-Sales/Solution design Engineer. Though Juniper is known in the market for its products & competency specifically in routing (to which I have been more inclined towards since I started studying Juniper back when I started out my job), still no one would go for Junos certifications, the fast track program gave an exponential turn over to Junos certs resulting in Junos biasing & mind sets within the market. I also stand among the many who fallen prey to this strategy. After graduating from university I couldn’t afford 250$ base level certs as it’s pretty much a heavy amount here in Pakistan hence I went for cheap trainings offered for the same certs, that gave me good level of knowledge & understanding, ultimately landing me to a job where I am. Yet still I didn’t have enough courage to spend $250 on a base level cert. Juniper when aggressively launched fast track program, I got attracted to it like north & south magnetic poles do, and now today I stand proudly with 5 Juniper certifications! That is what makes me Juniper biased, it offered something to me that no one ever did! Free certifications I could just dream of! I now look forward to more studying more Juniper and work with service provider end Juniper equipment, I am currently looking forward to have JNCIE-ER & Junos service provider track credentials in my profile.


Thank you Juniper!
