 +====== Campus Network Design Workshop ======
 +
 +  * [[:​2016:​nsrc-tein-lernet:​agenda|Detailed Agenda]] (includes links to presentations and schedule)
 +
 +===== Synopsis =====
 +
 +This 5-day workshop is targeted at engineers from tertiary institutions (campuses) and national or regional research and education networks (RENs). Engineers who participate in this workshop will learn about:
 +
 +  * best practice techniques in the areas of core network and Linux/Unix system administration skills
 +  * campus network design at layers 2 (switching) and 3 (routing)
 +  * building proper instrumentation to monitor and manage the network
 +
 +These skills will in turn drive an increase in network security and reliability.
 +
 +===== Target Audience =====
 +
 +Network system administrators,​ engineers and technicians from campuses and RENs who are responsible for network maintenance,​ planning and design.
 +
 +===== Pre-Requisites =====
 +
 +  * Medium to good knowledge of the UNIX/Linux command line environment
 +  * Basic knowledge of TCP/IP networking
 +  * PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING A LAPTOP
 +
 +===== Workshop Topics =====
 +
 +  * Network design goals
 +  * Research and Education Networks
 +  * Cable types - Copper cabling systems - Fiber Optic Systems
 +  * Hierarchical design building blocks
 +  * Build star networks
 +  * Separate core and edge functions
 +  * Routing Vs Switching
 +  * IP addressing
 +
 +===== Objectives =====
 +
 +At the end of the workshop students will be able to:
 +
 +  * Explain the goals associated with fit-for-purpose network design and demonstrate this understanding through successful completion of lab exercises.
 +  * Explain the different models of a Research and Education Network and be able to share with the class the model used or proposed in their economy.
 +  * Explain physical cabling types, their differences and where they might be best deployed.
 +  * Explain and demonstrate how to build networks hierarchically using a star topology. ​
 +  * Present their current network topology and explain how this compares to the star-topology taught in class.
 +  * Produce a sample addressing plan and present it, plus the underlying design rationale in class.
 +  * Produce an IP Subnetting and VLAN design for their campus network.
 +
 +===== Class Size =====
 +
 +The Workshop can accommodate up to 36 participants.
 +
 +===== Trainers =====
