Event description

Description

LONAP Introduction to Peering and BGP routing is a two day introductory workshop covering:

  • Internet: Peering and Transit
  • Routing technology overview
  • 7 Layer OSI model and IP
  • Basics of IP subnetting: CIDR, IPv4 and IPv6 addressing
  • Using the command line (CLI)
  • Configuring an IGP, iBGP
  • Configuring BGP for peering and transit
  • Route servers
  • IRRDB and RPKI
  • Routing and peering policy
  • Troubleshooting


Who should attend?

Ideal for anyone wishing to learn the principles of Service Provider networks: Internet Peering, Transit, and how to understand and create a BGP configuration and routing policy.

Course Prerequisites

  • CCNA or equivalent experience and/or;
  • Being engaged in a role within a peering network, (e.g. NOC, network teams, peering or operations)
  • You will need to bring a laptop computer with WiFi and power supply.
  • You will need an SSH2 client installed such as PuTTY (windows) or in-built "ssh" terminal for Mac
  • Some prior knowledge of using the Cisco/Arista or similar CLI would be beneficial, but is not essential.


What's it like?

The course starts with a refresher on Layers 1-3 in the OSI model (Cabling, Layer 2 networking, IP Subnetting) and covers the principles of Service Provider networks: Transit, Peering, Autonomous Systems, routing protocols.

You will start with a blank configuration, and over two days build a fully working network with BGP.

Using hands-on labs, we guide participants through configuring two routers running OSPF (as an example IGP) with IBGP and EBGP sessions to multiple Transit networks, and then establish peering with other participants both directly and via a route server.

Note: Although we do cover IPv6 addressing in this course, the configurations are done with IPv4. However, the principles for BGP are the same for IPv6.

The afternoon of day 2 is reserved for troubleshooting and further exploration of routing problems that can occur: route leaks, prefix hijacks and blackholes.

We leave the training lab running for 2 weeks after the course, should you wish to log in again to revisit any of the labs, or just experiment further. (Further access is available provided there is no other course due to run in the lab.)

Places are limited due to the hands-on nature of the course.
Note - We are limiting places to two individuals per organisation, in order of registration.
If there are more people at your organisation that would like to attend, please contact us. Free places will be offered where possible if there are more than two participants wishing to attend.

This course will be free of charge, but please only register if you are definately able to attend both days.

We are grateful to Cloudflare for hosting this course at their London office. (County Hall)

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Cloudflare (County Hall) entrance is on Belvedere Road. (Not the riverside entrance by the London Eye etc.)

Transport:

County Hall is a short walk from the following stations:

  • Waterloo (National Rail / Jubilee / Bakerloo / Northern & Waterloo & City Lines)
  • Westminster (Circle / District / Jubilee lines)
  • Charing Cross (National Rail) is also about a 10 minute walk

We recommend using the Citymapper App to plan your journey in London.
For journeys from outside London, the National Rail website. (If you do not have an Oyster Card, it will be expensive! Alternatively, buy your national rail ticket including London Underground Zone 1 to get from your arrival station to Waterloo via tube.)

Parking:

  • Good luck with that!
  • There are a few car parks around Waterloo Station. Try Britannia Car Park at Upper Marsh.
  • Remember to pay the Congestion Charge and maybe the Ultra Low Emission Zone charge, depending on your vehicle.
  • You may be able to "park and ride" somewhere outside the congestion zone and get public transport to Central London.


Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

If you want to change names, you must notify us in advance so our hosts know who will be arriving.
We'll need to prepare materials in advance with the registered name.
Note. The same person should attend both days, unless this has been agreed in advance.

Is my ticket transferrable?

No. If you can no longer attend, please cancel your place and contact us.
