Location: Taichung, Taiwan
Conference Website: APNIC44
Venue: The Splendor Hotel Taichung


Synopsis

  • This is a technical workshop, made up of lecture and hands-on lab work to teach the OSPF/ISIS and BGP skills required for the configuration and operation of large scale networks that make up the Internet.

Target Audience

  • Technical staff who are now building or operating a wide area service provider network with international and/or multi-provider connectivity, or considering participation at an Internet Exchange point, or considering deploying IPv6 across their infrastructure and to their end users.

Pre-requisites

  • It is assumed that the workshop participants know how to use a router command line interface, do basic router configuration and have a working knowledge of an IGP (OSPF or ISIS) and BGP fundamentals. This workshop is not an introduction. The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.

Workshop topics

  • IS-IS design and best practices for Service Provider networks
  • OSPF/ISIS design and best practices for Service Provider networks
  • BGP introduction, attributes, and policy
  • BGP scalability (including Route Reflectors and Communities)
  • Aggregation
  • ISP best practices
  • Peering best practices
  • IPv6 background and standards
  • IPv6 Extentions for Routing Protocols
  • IPv6 Addressing and Address Planning
  • IPv6 Deployment Case Study

Other requirements

  • Hardware: It is highly recommended that participants bring their own laptop computers with Wifi(b/g/n) and administrative access to system to practice the lessons learned during the workshops.
  • Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client

Synopsis

  • The objective of this workshop is to examine the key concepts, protocols and the policies involved in establishing and maintaining security for a network, and building an understanding and familiarity with their operation. Device and network infrastructure security is examined with a focus on different layers to establish a robust, stable and secure network and protect the data and processes that occur in the network.
  • The workshop also looks at the nature and structure of network attacks.
  • The course further examines the actions and processes that can be used to identify, mitigate and respond to such attacks.

Target Audience

  • Engineers, Network Managers and Operators, Security policy makers who are interested in network security and gaining an understanding of the threats they face and how to mitigate such threats.

Pre-requisites

  • It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of network operations and Internet technologies.
