    Interesting...

    Perhaps that JNCIA-JUNOS explains the new logos that showed up on their CertManager website...

    I was wondering what the new logos were for.
    Here's a text version of what's on them.
    Too busy to upload a pic right now.

    J>Certified
    Internet <Assoc/Spec/Pro/Exp>
    JUNOS Software

    Ok, ok, maybe it's lazy, not busy. Same dif :P

    This juniper stuff seems to keep sweetening the deal. I may need to seriously reconsider doing the CCNA:S next....

    Hmmm, I was just thinking about that JNCIA-JUNOS prereq.

    New Certifications
    * JNCIA- JUNOS (This is a prerequisite to the JNCIS-SEC exam)
    * JNCIS-SEC (replaces JNCIS-ES)


    From the FastTrack FAQ:

    If I have already achieved a JNCIA-ER and/or a JNCIS-ER, am I required to take the
    JNCIA-JUNOS exam?

    No, for those who have an existing JNCIA-ER or JNCIS-ER certification, these new courses and certifications are not required. However, if you are just beginning the process of becoming JUNOS certified, we highly recommend that you start with the introductory courses associated with the JNCIA-JUNOS certification.


    So, I would assume the people with the JUNOS routing background will already meet the prereq. This may be geared more towards those coming from the ScreenOS security background to make sure they're familar with the JUNOS platform.

    Now, for those that don't meet the prereq and are greatly opposed to taking another exam, you could try bypassing that prereq by taking the JNCIS-ES before it expires. Might work, might not, prolly pointless as I'm sure most people interested in the JNCIS-ES/SEC already meet the prereq, or could benefit from it.

    Just some morning ramblings.... :)

    Yea, from what I'm told the exam will be geared more toward people with no JUNOS exp at all. Also, the test is supposed to be a very basic entry level cert so any current JNCIA is supposed to be more advanced.

    haha, I think I just might do the same, it's gonna be free to take so why not. Don't worry, if you fail, I'll just fail too. That way you won't be the only 2x JNCIE to fail the intro JUNOS exam ;)
