## Goals / objectives ## 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. Workshop topics include, but are not limited to: * IS-IS design and best practices for Service Provider networks * BGP attributes and policy * BGP scalability (including Route Reflectors and Communities) * Aggregation * IPv6 Protocol and Standards * IPv6 extensions for routing protocols * IPv6 addressing and address planning * IPv6 transition techniques * IPv6 deployment case study ## Target audience ## 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. ## Pre-requisites ## 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. This workshop is not an introduction. The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax. Participants are required to bring their own laptops - (Windows/Linux/macOS) with wireless ## Software ## * Windows: [Putty SSH](/downloads/putty.exe) * macOS (10.13 onwards): [Telnet](/downloads/telnet)
