BGP Routing and Multihoming Workshop
All workshops are held for 5 days (16-20 January, 2006). 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 7 we have three workshops.
Routing and BGP Multihoming workshop
Instructors : Philip Smith, Yogesh Jiandani
Requirements: Attendees must bring a laptop computer
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.
Pre-requisites: 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: OSPF and OSPF areas, iBGP, eBGP, BGP Scaling, BGP Policies, BGP Transit, Route Reflectors, BGP Best Practices, BGP Configuration Essentials, Policy Routing, IXP Design.
Title : IPv6 Deployment Workshop
Instructors : Kurtis Lindqvist (Netnod), Khalid Raza (Cisco), Miwa Fuji (APNIC)
Requirements : Attended with laptops are desirable.
Intended Audience : Engineers and operational staffs at ISPs and large networks including academic networks who are planning to use IPv6 either as research or into production networks. Anyone who wants to learn how IPv6 works in practice can also attend.
Pre-Requisites : Good knowledge of IPv4 addressing, network operations as well as knowledge of DNS, Routing with both IGP and BGP. It is important that students have good prior knowledge of operations in IPv4 in order for them to attend this workshop.
Topics Covered :The workshop will be a a combination of theory and lab. The lab will constitute about 60% of the total course. The course will cover
o History of IPv6
- What where the problems to be solved?
- Which where the proposed solutions
- Why was IPv6 chosen?o IPv6 Design and addressing
- What's an IPv6 address?
- Packet formats
- Comparison between IPv4 and IPv6 packets
- Address allocationo Transition from IPv4 to IPv6
- Various transition technologies
- etco IPv6 Neighbour discovery
o IPv6 Stateless auto-configuration
o Mobile IPv6
o Address selection
o IPv6 and DNS
- Things to think about
- How to configureo Applications
- What applications are there?
- How do I port my application to support IPv6?
- IPv6 POSIX APIo Is IPv6 any good?
- Does it solve today's problems?
- What does the future for IPv6 looks like?o Configuring IPv6 on your machines
- Static addresses
- Prefix advertisement
- DNS-server (bind) and zones
- Configuring postfix for mail
- Configuring Apache for IPv6o RIP
o BGP and BGP Multihoming
o Configuring IPv6 on your router
o Configuring OSPFv3
o Configuring BGP
o Configuring filtering
o APNIC policies with regards to IPv6 Allocation.
o Global IPv6 scenario
o Migration strategies and case studies
Title : Multicast Routing and Applications Workshop
Instructor : Greg Shepard
Requirements : 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.
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
