Workshop participants need to be proficient with a router command line interface, have a good understanding of OSPF or ISIS, as well as experience with using BGP in an operational network.

The labs use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.

Some user-level Unix experience would be advantageous

All participants will need to bring a laptop with WiFi access. A tablet cannot be used for this workshop. The laptop will be used to access the lab network as well as the course materials on the workshop wiki. Participants will work in pairs on the lab exercises.

Class Size

The Workshop can accommodate up to 28 participants, working in groups of two.
