I quit my job…by design. I start a new gig on Tuesday and am getting back to the world of Cisco. As a last nod to Juniper, I decided to use an exam voucher I had and take the JNCIS-ENT…
The year is finally coming to an end, so it’s time yet again to look at goals and embarrass myself by publicly admitting that I didn’t meet them.
Here’s one that I use every day at work. We have multiple customers coming into the same router, and, as luck would have it, they all use 192.168.1.0/24 (OK…not really but it might happen). That means we have to separate them into their own routing instance, or virtual router, so pass traffic to their firewall. Think VRF lite on a Cisco router. Let’s conflagrate.
We’ve been looking for a new Network Engineer for quite a while but are having no luck at all. There is plenty of talent out there, but finding a high-end Juniper guy is almost impossible around here. We’ve loosened up our requirement for Juniper experience just to get someone in for interviews. This led us to one propsect and an interesting story.
I’m stuck deep in Junos these days. I mean deep. That means I have some learning to do.
My Juniper account exec let some news slip yesterday. I think he had a little too much to drink at dinner. :)
Maybe not epic, but a win nonetheless.
