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/Jiniper router configuration commands.

Target Audience:
