- Routing (OSPF and BGP)
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, 28th June - Saturday 2nd July
This is an advanced workshop. Participants must have experience
of routers and dynamic routing protocols to be eligible for the
workshop. No IPv6 experience is required, but 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,
participate in an Internet Exchange Point, or intend to deploy IPv6
across their network and to their customers.
PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING A LAPTOP COMPUTER.
