Hi, My name is Christophe and I've got Cisco CCNA and CCNP certification about 10 years ago... Since few months I've started to learn for JNCIA-EX and JNCIA-ER because I have already a strong routing and switching background and I really like Juniper products and JunOS. One single CLI language for all the products! I think Cisco can only dream of it. I attempted the two exams but failed for few points due to a lack of knowledge of the WebUI... :-( I'd lie to take this offer as an opportunity to retake those two exams and pass them!



My name is Dong, I am a networking engineer from Vietnam and I have 2 years of experience in Juniper Firewall. The first time I worked with Juniper Firewall when was a student. I have CCNA certification before but when I worked as internship student for a System Integrated company, in a project for a Malaysia bank, my supervisor called me and said that “Do you think that you can configure this Juniper Firewall?”, I said “Yes”, he said “Okay, let’s read the configuration guide of Juniper SSG550 Firewall and work with them tomorrow”. I realize that Juniper Firewall so robust, safe. They have many features and easy for configuring and managing. I got certified in JNCIA-ER, JNCIS-ER; so now I want to get JNCIS-FWV (JN0-532) certification via free voucher.


Thanks and Regards.


Hi every one,


Talking about certification is very, very difficult, first, because you need study a lot to understand one technology and secound about the difference between devices, but, some times, you can choose a wrong technology, or worse, choose a bad vendor, and then, every thing you do is lost, in this case, your time, your patience and your good time with your family.


Choose a vendor is very important to success, of course because they have technology and knowledge about market with you work, in this case, Juniper have both: high tecnology and very good knowledge about the market.


Some vendor just copy what other doeing, i think the Juniper can create new steps to technology and above all development new concept and new devices.


I what to work with a company which I light farther and give me other perspective about my bussiness.


If i want to go another place, i need help, and my certification is a good proof to my career.


My name's Joao Netto from Brazil, and I'm a JNCIA-EX, JNCIS-E/ER, JNCIP-M(#981) and i really want my JNCIE-M.

There was a teacher who knows all answers for my sill questions. After finish my IT study, i start working with that guy. He show me that ISO is not so friendly as Junos can be. From that time i fell in love Junos. Now i start to prepare for my JNCIP-M exam. And who knows, maybe next JNCIE-M.
