Juniper olive on old Nokia IP330

I’ve been wanting to do more Juniper studies. Unfortunately at work we only have 2 Junipers on the BGP edge so we don’t exactly get to play with them.

I’ve known about olives on the PC for a while, but I wanted something better. I could not afford to buy a J2300 so I went he next best route – The 1U Olive

I’ve just got it working too!

I’ve got a couple of other IP330’s so I just need to replicate this. I’ll stick this in the lab. This essentially gives 4 me Juniper routers!

The next step is to upgrade the JUNOS version on this one and do a few more. Then put them together and see what happens.

  1. Hello Darren, do you have a detailed instruction guide on converting the nokia ip 330 to juniper. Specifically, what junos ver, etc.

    I would like to get hold of a ip330 but would an ip360 work???

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you

    P.s website is awesome – hope you get ur CCIE number (if not already)

  2. Hi Darren

    Did you end up using this lab for your JNCIE studies? It’s already an old post so I’m wondering if it’s still an option worth exploring, rather than virtualizing…
