VOIP Deployment Worshop
Routing and BGP Multihoming workshop
Instructors : Gaurab Raj Upadhaya, Michuki Mwangi
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.
MPLS Design and Deployment Workshop
Instructors : Md. Durrani, et al
Requirements: All participants shold bring Laptops.
Prerequisites: Sound Knowledge of IP Routing including BGP. Ideally, participants should have gone through the IP Routing workshop, and or have at least a year of Advanced IP Routing Knowledge.
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) , or metro service providers. Larger ISPs venturing into differentiated services will benefit.
