Venue: Online

Synopsis

  • IS-IS is a widely used IGP (interior gateway protocol) in both enterprise and service provider networks.
  • This tutorial will cover how link state protocols work in general, the different IS-IS packet types, IS-IS neighbour discovery, and IS-IS best path selection. We will also discuss best practices around what routing information should be carried in IS-IS.

Target Audience

  • Technical folks who are building or operating a service provider or enterprise network.

Pre-requisites

It is assumed that participants have a understanding of:

  • network operations, Internet technologies, OSI reference model and TCP/IP.
  • Basic Linux command line (CLI) skills.
  • The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.

We recommend the following Academy courses be completed before the start of the tutorial:

Other requirements

  • Online - Participants are advised to bring their own laptop or desktop computers with high-speed internet access and administrative access to system. It is also recommended that computers have Intel i5 or i7 processor, >=8GB of RAM and 30GB of free hard disk space.
  • Face to face - Participants are advised to bring their own laptop computers with high-speed Wi-Fi (802.11a/g/n/ac) and administrative access to system. It is also recommended that laptops have Intel i5 or i7 processor, >=8GB of RAM and 30GB of free hard disk space.
  • Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client, VirtualBox/VMware
  • Confirm Secure SHell (SSH) is allowed from the office or home network to access the lab infrastructure? Test ssh connectivity, try to connect to route-views.routeviews.org. For example from the CLI type: ssh rviews@route-views.routeviews.org
  • Attendees must have an APNIC Academy login account. If you don't have one already, you can create an account for free at https://academy.apnic.net/
  • Please test the speed of your Internet connection to the servers where the Virtual Machines (VMs) are hosted at the Learn on Demand data centres, using the speed test tool at https://www.learnondemandsystems.com/speedtest/
