Workshop

WROU02: Routing II

Duration
3 days
Level of Study
Intermediate

Synopsis

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.

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.
