This technical workshop is made up of lectures and hands-­‐on lab exercise to teach design issues to build routing infrastructure, classifications and how to choose different routing protocols, Internet routing architecture design principles, OSPF, BGP, BGP traffic engineering and scaling tools i.e. Local Pref, MED, AS path prepend, communities, Route reflector, peer group 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 Cisco IOS router configuration commands.


This workshop will be delivered at PacNOG 20 – please visit the PacNOG website for full details and to register –


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 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. The lab exercises use Cisco IOS, JunOS and/or Huawei configuration syntax.
