Juniper Networks has launched a new design training and certification curriculum for network design.
According to a company statement, the program is designed to teach best practices and new techniques across network design, including software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV).
Juniper Networks copper river information technology principle architect, Gary Hauser, said design and architecture knowledge were 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,” he said.
“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.”
The 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.
Juniper said it is offering training on the full network lifecycle, from initial design all the way through ongoing maintenance.
It also offers specialised trainings for customers in verticals such as financial services, Cloud services, national government and other customers with complex datacentre environments or heightened security concerns.
The new program is available to all existing customers, partners and IT professionals.
