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
  • Using route servers and IRRDB
  • Routing and peering policy
  • Troubleshooting

Note: This course is in Manchester, timed to be after UKNOF43 (on April 9th.)

It's not in the same venue as UKNOF this time. If you are attending UKNOF43, travel time from Manchester Central to Equinix is about 25 minutes by public transport, or typically 8-16 min by car.

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 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. If time permits, we can configure 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.

We are grateful to the following partners for their support:
