Introduction to the Session and Resource Control (ISRC) — A 5-day course
Please note that this course has been retired and is no longer available. Please see the Juniper page for courses currently available in this subject area.
This course is designed to provide a solid foundation to the Session and Resource Control Policy Engine (SRC-PE) when managing routers running JUNOSe software. The SRC-PE software runs on the C-series Controller. In this type of environment, the SRC-PE software typically manages residential and wireless LAN (WLAN) users. This course provides an overview of the SRC-PE architecture, which operates in a distributed environment, although you perform the labs in a local, single-system configuration.
After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:
- Describe the SRC-PE application and how it manages JUNOSe-based routers in a residential and WLAN environment.
- Describe the different layers in the next-generation networking architecture.
- Identify the products in the Juniper Networks Session and Resource Control portfolio.
- List the open interfaces used by the portfolio components.
- Identify C2000 and C4000 components and the field-replaceable units (FRUs).
- Describe the purpose of the universal serial bus (USB) storage device that ships with each unit.
- Use the SRC-PE command-line interface (CLI) and the C-Web graphical user interface (GUI) to configure and monitor a C-series Controller.
- Explain the role of each of the various network and SRC-PE components.
- Explain the purpose of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
- Configure new subscribers using the SRC-PE CLI and the C-Web GUI.
- Describe packet flow in Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) environments.
- Explain the role of the redirect server and default policies in captive portal processing.
- Explain service activation engine (SAE) redundancy.
- Use the SRC-PE CLI to create new policies and services.
- Use the JUNOSe router CLI to view and troubleshoot policy configuration.
- List the benefits of using global and local parameters within policies.
- Describe the purpose of the interface and subscriber classification scripts.
- Configure a wholesaler/retailer environment using shared subscriber profiles.
- Troubleshoot configuration issues using the SRC-PE log files.
- Describe the purpose of the DHCP classification script and DHCP profiles.
- Configure the SRC-PE to support DHCP network access.
- Describe the purpose of the network information collector (NIC).
- Describe the purpose of internal and external plug-ins.
- Modify the default internal plug-in configuration using the SRC-PE CLI.
- Configure dynamic subscriber interfaces on the JUNOSe router.
- Configure the SRC-PE to manage dynamic subscriber interfaces.
- Configure the SRC-PE from a factory-default configuration.
- Test and troubleshoot the new SRC-PE environment.
This course is intended for technical network professionals responsible for the integration, configuration, and management of the SRC-PE software.
