This is a technical workshop, made up of lecture and hands-on lab work to teach the necessary routing protocol and IPv6 skills for networks which make up today’s Internet.
This workshop will be delivered at APRICOT 2018 – please visit the APRICOT website for full details and to register https://conference.apnic.net/45/register/
Technical staff who are now building or operating a wide area service provider network with international and/or multi-provider connectivity, and are considering deploying IPv6 across their infrastructure and to their end users.
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 IS-IS) and BGP fundamentals.
Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

- BGP attributes and policy
- BGP scalability (including Route Reflectors and Communities)
- IPv6 Protocol and Standards
- IPv6 extensions for routing protocols
- IPv6 addressing and address planning
- IPv6 transition techniques
- IPv6 deployment case study
This workshop is not an introduction. The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.
