# BGP Deployment Operations Workshop #
* **Date:** 17th - 19th May 2023
* **Location:** Bangkok, Thailand
* **Host:** [THNIC Academy](https://academy.thnic.or.th/en/) and [BKNIX](https://bknix.co.th/)
* **Venue:** [Carlton Hotel, 491 Sukhumvit Road, Klongtoey Nua](https://www.carltonhotel.co.th/), 8th Floor, Sukhumvit 1 Room
* **Registration:** [THNIC Academy](https://academy.thnic.or.th/bgp-deployment-workshop/)
## Synopsis ##
This three-day training course teaches the skills required to help
network engineers learn how to deploy interior and exterior routing
protocols in a dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) network environment.
Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
* Dual stack network infrastructure
* Interior Routing Protocols including IS-IS
* Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
* How to deploy IBGP and EBGP
* How to scale BGP
* Route Filtering in BGP
* Implementing BGP Policies for traffic engineering
* BGP Best Practices, including Aggregation
The skills learned during this course will help improve the day to day
operational capabilities of the network operators who take part. This
in turn will give a better end-user experience, and will improve the
overall stability of the global routing infrastructure.
## Target Audience ##
The course targets the network & systems engineers who are relative
new to using routing protocols in their daily job, and who wish to
learn more about industry best practice configurations as used by the
major operators worldwide. The course is also suitable for network
operators who are considering deploying IPv6 across their
infrastructure and to their end users.
## Pre-requisites ##
Workshop participants **must** have hands on experience with
configuring routers and basic knowledge about routing protocols. The
course is designed for participants who are **currently using dynamic
routing protocols** in their network, or **planning to deploy BGP** on
existing external connections.
The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.
Participants must be proficient with a router command line interface,
but Cisco experience is not necessary.
Participants must bring laptops with a modern web browser installed
Participants must also have reviewed the Video Tutorials at
[learn.nsrc.org](https://learn.nsrc.org/bgp), specifically those covering
## Objectives ##
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
* Configure IS-IS within their network infrastructure, according to
industry best practices.
* Know how to operate a dual stack network, and be aware of the
similarities and differences between IPv4 and IPv6.
* Be conversant in the BGP protocol, and know how to use the different
BGP attributes to achieve different policies.
* Use BGP to efficiently configure multiple connections to different
* Be aware of the best practices for using BGP on the Internet today,
including Aggregation and Scaling.
