AfNOG WORKSHOP ON NETWORK TECHNOLOGY

    The AfNOG Workshop on Network Technology aims to offer advanced

    enhancing an Internet-connected network with regional and
    international connectivity.  The target audience includes senior and
    mid-level technical staff of commercial Internet service providers
    (ISPs), academic networks, government networks, or NGO networks.

    This workshop builds on the experience of previous AfNOG workshops
    held annually from 2000 to 2007 in eight different African countries,
    and also the Internet Society's INET workshops, held annually from
    1993 to 2000 at eight locations around the world.  The workshop's
    instructors are an international team with many years of experience
    operating large networks and teaching about network operations.

    The workshop is divided into four parallel tracks:

        SA-E  - Unix System Administration (in English), focused on
                using a Unix-like operating system as a platform for
                delivery of Internet services.

        SS-E  - Scalable Internet Services (in English), focused
                on the design and operation of email, web, and other
                Internet services, in ways that can scale to handle
                large numbers of end users.

        SI-E  - Scalable Network Infrastructure (in English), focused
                on the design and operation of networks using routers
                and switches, in ways that can scale to handle large
                numbers of interconnected sites.

        SI-F  - Infrastructure Reseaux IP (en francais),
                similar to SI-E, but given in French.

Further information and online application form for the workshop can be
found  at <http://www.afnog.org/afnog2008/workshop/online_application.html>

    are intended to offer advanced training on technology already
    deployed or soon to be deployed on networking and related services
    provisioning for ISP operations.


9th AfNOG MEETING

    The meeting will include tutorials, presentations, update on the various
    working groups and the AfriNIC Public Policy Meeting. The two day
meeting
    will be preceeded by a two-day IPv6 training. The meeting will focus on
    the IPv6 protocol and its deployment, especially in Africa and the issue
    of the exhaustion of the IPv4 pool of address space. There will be an

with
    the exhaustion.
