This course on Scalable Network Infrastructure is part of the AfNOG 2010 Workshop on Network Technology, held in conjunction with the AfNOG meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, in May 2010.
We use hands-on training in a well-equipped classroom over a five-day period to teach skills required for the configuration and operation of large scale networks connected to the Internet.
The topics covered include: Basic routing; OSPF routing; BGP routing; Management of router configuration; NOC (Network Operations Centre); Exchange points between networks; Security.
Who should attend: Technical staff who are now operating a wide area TCP/IP network, likely with international and/or multi-provider connectivity. Those who will be involved in the establishment and/or operation of a basic national network infrastructure in the country.
Prerequisites: Experience using TCP/IP-based networking technologies.
