Advance Routing & BGP Workshop

Advance Routing & BGP Workshop


(Download Slides)

This technical workshop is made up of lectures and hands-on lab exercise to teach design issues to build large scale routing infrastructure, classifications and how to choose different routing protocols, Internet routing architecture design principles, OSPF/IS-IS, BGP, BGP traffic engineering and scaling tools i.e. Local Pref, MED, AS path prepend, communities, Route reflector, peer group, MP-BGP for multiservice (MPLS, etc) network etc. Presentation cover detail protocol level operation an industry best current practise for both service provider and enterprise network.

The course also includes intense practical work based on IPv4 as well as IPv6 and router configuration commands.

Target Audience:
Mid level to senior technical and design staff of ISP, network operators or enterprise, who are involved in day-to-day network operation and planning function.

It is assumed that participants have a good understanding of network operations, Internet technologies, OSI reference model, TCP/IP and router operating system software (i.e Cisco IOS etc).

It is recommended that the participants has attended basic routing course at one of APNIC/APRICOT/SANOG/bdNOG workshops prior to attending this course.

Course Outline:

  • IPv6 address structure & deployment models
  • Routing Lab Topology Overview
  • Operation of IS-IS/OSPF Routing Protocol
  • Design and architecture knowledge for large scale ISP network
  • Basic BGP operation
  • BGP Attributes and Path Selection Process
  • BGP traffic engineering tools i.e. Local Pref, MED, AS path prepend, communities etc design and architecture.
  • BGP Scaling Techniques i.e. Route reflector, peer group etc design & architecture issues
  • BGP Fast Convergence Technique I.e. BFD, PIC Edge, design architecture etc
  • Extensive Lab Exercise and analysis on, OSPF/IS-IS, eBGP, iBGP, RR, Peer group etcI
  • Internet Exchange [IX] Policy Overview and Configuration requirement, Route server etc

Other requirements:
Hardware: It is highly recommended that participants bring their own laptop computers with administrative access (preferably) to practice the lessons learned during the workshops.

Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client

Maximum number of attendee:
30 participants per workshop.
