IPv6 for ISPs Workshop


This is a technical workshop, made up of lecture and hands-on lab work to teach the OSPF/ISIS and BGP skills required for the configuration and operation of large-scale networks that either already have or are planning to implement IPv6.

Target Audience

Technical staff who are now building or operating a wide area service provider network with international and/or multiprovider connectivity, or considering participation at an Internet Exchange point and are looking to gain invaluable knowledge of working with IPv6.


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 (OSPFv2) and BGP fundamentals for IPv4. This workshop is not an introduction. The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.

NB: Participants are required to bring laptops.

Network Infrastructure Security Workshop


This workshop will focus on how to protect a network’s infrastructure from external attack, including directed attacks on equipment, protocols (BGP, OSPF) and DoS-style attacks. Participants will learn what they can do to protect themselves against attacks and how to be good net-citizens by preventing their networks from becoming a source of attacks. Participants should already be comfortable with the configuration of networking equipment, specifically Cisco equipment, as we’ll be using in this workshop.

Target Audience

This workshop is designed for technical staff from ISP, enterprise or government organisations who are responsible for engineering and operating a secure IPv4/IPv6 network infrastructure.


  • Medium to good knowledge of Cisco and Juniper router/switch command line environment
  • Good knowledge of IPv4 and IPv6 TCP/IP networking
  • Good knowledge of routing (BGP, OSPF, IS-IS)
  • Participants are required to bring a laptop
