Annual NOC Meeting and Campus Network Design Workshop

The first day of the workshop will be for the Annual NOC meeting of network engineers to meet together and then share the knowledge and experience. Engineers will present status of their local network, its services, successful stories and future development plans.

At this event, a working group will be created to work on Voice Over IP and IPv6 for the deployment of VOIP and IPV6 in LEARN Institutes.

The workshop which will be conducted together with Information Technology Center will train system administrators/engineers of LEARN member institutions to provide them better understanding of best practices of design a campus network apart from configuration of access layer, distribution layer and core layer devices. The participant will design a sample campus network at the LAB and configure it to connect to LEARN VPLS and then to commodity Internet and Academic Internet. Access control to improver the security level and network measurement and troubleshooting to raise the quality of service will also be covered.

The LEARN objective of this workshop is to help member institutions to manage their home network and to improve its quality of service to support LEARN to properly render its services to the end users. It will also create a forum of technical persons of LEARN member institutions to improve the collaboration.
