29 August - 7 September 2007, New Delhi, India
All workshops are held for 5 days (29 August - 2 Sept, 2007). All participants must attend the entire workshops. All workshop have a limit of maxium 28 participants. All participants will receive complimentary books and certificate at the end of the workshop. At SANOG 10 we have three workshops.
Network Management and NOC Workshop
Routing and BGP Multihoming workshop
Instructors : Philip Smith, Amante Alvaran, Srinath Beldona, Yogesh Jiandani
Requirements: Attendees must bring a laptop computer
Who should attend: This is a technical workshop, made up of lectures and hands-on lab work. Open to technical staff who are now or soon will be building or operating a wide area TCP/IP base Internet Service Provider (ISP) network or Internet eXchange Point (IXP), likely with international and/or multi-provider connectivity.
Pre-requisites: Cisco IOS Fundamentals; user level UNIX and maybe some system administration; some use of network design, preferably TCP/IP-based.
What you will learn:
- Techniques for design, set-up, and operation of a metropolitan, regional, or national ISP backbone network. This includes advanced OSPF, BGP4, and policy based routing configurations.
- IOS Essentials every ISP should be doing. The hidden secrets that all key NSPs have been using for years, but not telling anyone (i.e. competitive advantage).
- Techniques for the design, set-up, and operation of Internet Exchange Points.
- Techniques for multiple connections to the Internet (multihoming), including connections to IXPs and ISPs . -Techniques to achieve optimal performance and configuration from a Cisco backbone router. This includes routing scalability, network design, and configuration tips.
Technologies Covered: OSPF and OSPF areas, iBGP, eBGP, BGP Scaling, BGP Policies, BGP Transit, Route Reflectors, BGP Best Practices, BGP Configuration Essentials, Policy Routing, IXP Design.
Title : Network Management and NOC Workshop
Instructors :Hervey Allen, Phil Regnauld, Gaurab Raj Upadhaya,
Requirements : Attended with laptops are desirable.
Intended Audience : Engineers and system staffs at ISPs and large networks including academic networks who are involved system management, network monitoring, and telemetry. The course is for those who need to manage diverse Network and NOC operations.
Pre-Requisites : Good knowledge of Unix, IPv4 addressing and general network concepts.
Topics Covered :The workshop will be a a combination of theory and lab. The lab will constitute about 60% of the total course. The course will cover
General Network Management and Planning Principles
SNMP and other network management Protocols
Ubuntu/Debian package systems
Nagios, Netflow, SmokePing
Ticketing systems such as Trac
Scripting and adapting tools to your system
Rancid and CVS for configuration management
Using VoIP (Asterisk) for NOC communication and sms/pager alerts
Title : Multicast Routing and Applications Workshop
Instructor : Greg Shepard, Amit Patel, Srinivasa Irigi
Requirements : Attendees with laptops are preferred
Intended Audience: Network Engineer/Administrator from educational networks in the region who will be pushing forward the deployment of multicast at their home institutions.
Pre-Requisites : Participants should be familiar with router configuration especially OSPF and BGP.
Over the course of this workshop students will design and set up a set of inter-connected multicast networks. The workshop will consist of a set of hands on exercises for small network teams. Each team will have a mix of routers and over the course of the workshop teams will configure their own network, inter-connect with the other teams, and then attach to the Internet.
It is our expectation that, after having experienced one workshop as a student, an attendee will be able to engineer multicast networks within his/her campus, to explain multicast engineering concepts to peers, and, in some cases, to help teach or facilitate future multicast workshops.
Topics to be covered at this workshop includes:
- Router Configuration
- Multicast addressing
- Protocol Soup
- IGMP (Internet Group Membership Protocol) used by hosts and routers to tell each other about group membership
- PIM-SM (Protocol Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode) used to propagate forwarding state between routers.
- SSM (Source Specific Multicast) utilizes a subset of PIM's functionality to guaranty source-only trees in the 232/8 range.
- MSDP (Multicast Source Discovery Protocol) used to exchange ASM active source information between RPs.
- MBGP (Multiprotocol BGP) used to exchange routing information for interdomain RPF checking.
- SSM & other topics
- Deploying multicast in a multi-vendor environment
