## Goals / objectives ## This is a technical workshop, made up of lecture and hands-on lab work to teach the skills needed to design, build, operate and manage any organisational network infrastructure according to current best practices. Participants in this course will learn about: * Core organisational infrastructure design best practices * Network design principles * Physical infrastructure (cabling and cabling installation) * Fibre optics * Switching (spanning tree, VLANs, L2 best practices) * Routing (static routing, IS-IS, and BGP) * IPv4, IPv6 and deploying dual stack infrastructure * Choosing routers and switches * Campus security implementation and best practices * Acceptable use policies * Monitoring * Firewall placement These skills will in turn drive an increase in organisational network performance, security and reliability. In turn this will improve the day to day Internet experience of end users. ## Pre-requisites ## It is assumed that the workshop participants are proficient with a router command line interface, and have day to day experience within an operational network. The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax. **Participants are required to bring laptops.** ## Technical Requirements ## Participants laptops/PCs must have: * a modern web browser installed (Chrome/Firefox/Safari/Opera/Edge)
