The course uses both IPv4 and IPv6 in a dual stack infrastructure. Workshop topics include, but are not limited to: * IS-IS design and best practices for R&E networks * BGP protocol, attributes and policy control * BGP Best Practices, including Aggregation * BGP multihoming techniques (redundancy and load balancing) * BGP Communities as used by Network Operators The skills learned during this course will help improve the performance of the NREN and the campus networks connected to them. In turn this will give a better end user experience, and will improve the over all participation in and utilisation of the global R&E infrastructure.
