PacNOG 8: Track 1 Course Web Site

Core Topics

  • Routing (OSPF and BGP)
  • IPv6
  • 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 will also introduce all aspects of IPv6 required by an ISP for their Internet backbone.

The workshop has a further goal to introduce participants to 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, 23rd - Saturday 27th November


This is a technical workshop made up of lectures and hands-on lab work. It is open to technical staff who are now or soon will be building or operating a wide area TCP/IP based Internet Service Provider (ISP) network or Internet eXchange Point (IXP), likely with international and/or multi-provider connectivity.
