- Routing (OSPF and BGP)
- Internet Exchange Points
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.
PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING A LAPTOP COMPUTER.
