Workshop Details

All workshops are held for 5 days (6-14 August 2008). All participants must attend the entire workshops. All workshop have a limit of maxium 28 participants. All participants will receive complimentary books and certificate at the end of the workshop. At SANOG 12 we have three workshops.

IPv6 Routing and Application Workshop
Multicast Workshop
VOIP Design and Applications Workshop

IPv6 Routing and Application Workshop
Instructors: Dr. Philip Smith, Merike Kaeo, Gaurab Raj Upadhaya

The SANOG Routing workshops are designed to provide an empowering learning environment. They provide a combination of lecture, whitepapers, books, and hands-on laboratory exercises all focused to teaching the participants how to design, scale, and maintain a production Internet Service Provider backbone.

Who should attend: This is a technical workshop. Attendees should be technical staff who are 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.

Prerequisites: Cisco IOS Fundamentals; user level UNIX and maybe some system administration; some use of network design, preferably TCP/IP-based; knowledge of BGP. Ideally all attendees must have completed the Basic SANOG Routing Workshop.

What you will learn:

• Background about IPv6, including motivations, design and addressing structure, router and host configuration.
• Background to IPv6 routing protocol configuration details, as well as exploring co-existence and transition techniques.
• Introduction to OSPFv3 and multiprotocol BGP. ISIS tuition can be included if requested
• Techniques for design, set-up, and operation of a metropolitan, regional, or national ISP backbone network. This includes advanced BGP4 and complex network configurations.
• IOS Essentials every ISP should be doing. The hidden secrets that all key ISPs have been using for years, but not telling anyone.
• Techniques to achieve optimal performance and configuration from a Cisco backbone router. This includes routing scalability, network design, and configuration tips.

Title : Multicast Routing and Applications Workshop
Instructor : Greg Shepard, Srinivasa Irigi, Luly Motomura

Download Slides
: Attendees with laptops are preferred

Intended Audience: Network Engineer/Administrator from educational networks in the region who will be pushing forward the deployment of multicast at their home institutions.

Pre-Requisites : Participants should be familiar with router configuration especially OSPF and BGP.

Workshop Format:
Over the course of this workshop students will design and set up a set of inter-connected multicast networks. The workshop will consist of a set of hands on exercises for small network teams. Each team will have a mix of routers and over the course of the workshop teams will configure their own network, inter-connect with the other teams, and then attach to the Internet.

It is our expectation that, after having experienced one workshop as a student, an attendee will be able to engineer multicast networks within his/her campus, to explain multicast engineering concepts to peers, and, in some cases, to help teach or facilitate future multicast workshops.

Topics to be covered at this workshop includes:
- Router Configuration
- Multicast addressing
- Protocol Soup
- IGMP (Internet Group Membership Protocol) used by hosts and routers to tell each other about group membership
- PIM-SM (Protocol Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode) used to propagate forwarding state between routers.
- SSM (Source Specific Multicast) utilizes a subset of PIM's functionality to guaranty source-only trees in the 232/8 range.
- MSDP (Multicast Source Discovery Protocol) used to exchange ASM active source information between RPs.
- MBGP (Multiprotocol BGP) used to exchange routing information for interdomain RPF checking.
- SSM & other topics
- Deploying multicast in a multi-vendor environment

VOIP Deployment Workshop
Instructors: Jonny Martin, Vicky 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 IPMulticast 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 sytems, 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.
Technologies covered: Basic circuit switched telephony, Cisco voice routersm VoIP protocols, Asterisk the open source PBX, Sip Express Router, ENUM, ISP VoIP architectures.
