IPv6 for ISPs Workshop
This is a technical workshop, made up of lectures and hands-on lab work. This workshop teaches the OSPF/ISIS and BGP skills that are needed for the configuration and operation of large-scale networks that have implemented IPv6, or that are planning to implement IPv6 in the future.
Technical staff who are now building or operating a wide area service provider network with international and/or multi-provider connectivity. The target audience could also be those who are considering taking part in an Internet Exchange point and want to gain knowledge of working with IPv6.
This workshop is not an introduction. Workshop participants should know how to use a router command-line interface (CLI), do basic router configuration, and have a working knowledge of an IGP (OSPFv2) and BGP fundamentals for IPv4. The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.
Participants must bring their own laptops.
