TEIN2 Kick-off Workshop      

Organized by Training Committee, APAN
Venue: intERLab/AIT   [map]
Date: 5-10 September 2005

The Kick-Off Workshop for TEIN2 is targeted at bringing network operation engineers from the TEIN2 beneficiary countries together for their first round of meeting and to bring them all to the level qualified for the operation and management of TEIN2 networks.

Group A: Junior engineers who will be trained to perform basic configuring functions for the Internet routing, use network monitoring tools and be able to perform trouble shooting.

Pre-requisite: basic concept of TCP/IP

Group B: Senior engineers or operation managers who will be trained on advanced or policy based routing and to perform network performance measurement, use the network monitoring tools and to be able to perform necessary trouble shooting.

Pre-requisite: knowledge of how to operate a router

Day 1-3
Basic Routing for
Group A

Advanced Routing for
Group B
(T. Komorizono & Bruce Morgan)
Day 4-5

(Bruce Morgan, Kitamura Yasuichi & Silvere Pradella)

Day 6 (10 September 2005)
General Discussion for Group A & B

Resource Persons:

APAN NOC Community:

  • AU - Bruce Morgan, AARNet
  • JP - Kitamura Yasuichi, NICT
  • KR - Iljoon Hwang, KORNET
  • intERLab/WIDE Project - Yasuo Tsuchimoto & T. Komorizono

TEIN2 NOC - Richard Feng, Wang Jilong and Li Xinman

Attendees: (list of attendees)

Each beneficiary member of TEIN2 is requested to send 2 junior engineers for Group A and 2 senior/admin engineers for Group B. Funding for participation is provided by TEIN2 project. For reimbursement purposes, original boarding passes and proof of flight cost, or, if not by air. a receipt that shows nights in Thailand are needed. No other receipts are needed, or will claimable. Each attendee needs to complete the TEIN2 reimbursement form. We assume in each case that the costs are centrally paid by the attendee's NREN, and therefore should be reimbursed (and this is a preference) to the NREN payment point.

Other members of TEIN2 community including non-beneficiary members are welcomed to participate on the last day of the workshop. Webcast will be arranged for remote participation.
