PacNOG 9: Track 1 - IPv4/IPv6 BGP Workshop

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, 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.
