Track 1: Advanced BGP Routing and IPv6 Deployment
Track 2: IP Telephony and VOIP Deployment
Track 3: MPLS Design and Deployment

Track 1: Advanced BGP Routing and IPv6 Deployment
Instructors: Gaurab Raj Upadhaya, Srinath Beldona, Yogesh Jiandani

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.

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:

IPv4 and IPv6, OSPF, iBGP, eBGP, BGP Scaling, BGP Policies, Route Reflectors, BGP Best Practices, BGP Configuration Essentials, Policy Routing, IXP Design.

Each class is different and tuned to the participants requirements. If there are any specific requirements, these should be communicated to the instructors during the workshops. The instructors who teach at these workshops are among the top Internet engineers today and between them, have a great deal of knowledge on many current technologies.

Track 2: IP Telephony and VOIP Deployment
Instructors: Jonny Martin, Kabindra Shrestha

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 deploying IP Multicast services on a IP based Internet Service Provider (ISP) network, Enterprise network, Campus network or Internet exchange Point (IXP), for one-to-many and/or many-to-many data/media/NGN distribution services and applications.

User level UNIX and basic system administration skills; basic understanding of VoIP; understanding of TCP/IP and some network design in a service provider environment.

What you will learn:

  • An introduction to telephony past and present, and how this has evolved into Voice over IP.
  • VoIP fundamentals; techniques, codecs, protocols, plus network and quality considerations.
  • Cisco voice router configuration
  • How to install and configure Asterisk, one of the most popular and fully feature open source PBXs available.
  • Advanced techniques with Asterisk including database integration, interactive voice response (IVR) applications, billing systems, queuing / helpdesk systems, and integration with external applications.
  • Configuration of the open source SIP Express Router, and a look at other open source VoIP servers.
  • VoIP platform architectures and management considerations
  • Configuration and provisioning requirements for a variety of hardware, including Asterisk/Digium PSTN cards, Cisco voice gateways, and SIP handsets.
  • Where and how to use ENUM, voice peering, and voice interconnection techniques.
  • DNS and VoIP configuration
  • A look at where VoIP technologies are heading, and current trends in VoIP deployments

Topics Covered:
Basic circuit switched telephony, Cisco voice routers, VoIP protocols, Asterisk the open source PBX, SIP Express Router, ENUM, ISP VoIP architectures.

Track 3: MPLS Design and Deployment
Instructors : Srini Irigi, David Bannister

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 based Internet Service Provider (ISP), or metro service providers. Larger ISPs venturing into differentiated services will benefit.

All participants should bring Laptops.

Good working knowledge of IP Routing in BGP and OSPF/ISIS. Ability to troubleshoot simple IP network is desired.

What you will learn:

  • Introduction to MPLS - basic functionality and features, L3VPN, TE, L2VPN
  • Deploying MPLS VPN - L3 design and deployment, VRF, VRF aware features (NAT, FW, IPSEC), remote access to VPN's, QOS, Enterprise and Campus VPN's
  • Traffic Engineering - functionality, tunnel models for bandwidth control and path protection
  • CEs deployment - How to build large enterprize network over MPLS cloud
  • MPLS security - Issues pertaining to MPLS security
  • L2 VPN's - Types and functionality for EoMPLS, AToM, VPLS, L2TPV3
  • Troubleshooting MPLS - LDP, RIB, FIB, MP-BGP for VPN's, L2VPN
