PacNOG 12: Track 1 - BGP Routing and IXP Workshop

Core Topics

  • Routing (OSPF and BGP)
  • Internet Exchange Points
  • Multihoming


To teach participants how to set up an operational network with multiple routers, using OSPF as an IGP and BGP as the routing mechanism to connect this network to other networks.

The workshop has a further goal to introduce participants to Internet Exchange Points and multihoming using BGP. As more and more ISPs investigate redundancy for their operations, or more countries have fibre landing, BGP becomes a very important part of the network design.


  • Track 1: Tuesday 11th - Friday 14th December


This is an advanced workshop. Participants must have experience of routers and dynamic routing protocols to be eligible for the workshop. Good familiarity with IPv4 and TCP/IP protocols is a must.

The workshop is intended for network engineering and operations staff to improve and widen their skill sets. It is especially intended for networking organisations who intend to deploy BGP for multihoming and participate in an Internet Exchange Point.
