Training Program for Maintaining Campus Network Workshop

 

18-22 August, Patuakhali, Bangladesh

 

  

Participants:

Network professionals from public universities in Bangladesh (26 participants) and one (1) participant from Sri Lanka

 

Lead organisation:

PSTU (Bangladesh)

 

Objective:

- To train network assistant, engineers and network related personnel etc. on how to operate and maintain a campus network

- To raise awareness of the importance of campus network maintenance

 

Approach:

Recently the Bangladesh Research and Education Network (BdREN) connected Patuakhali Science and Technology University (PSTU) and a campus network is planned to be established as part of a  campus network sub-project, initiated by the Ministry of Education and funded by World Bank.
The implementing agencies of this project are BdREN and the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh. UGC/BdREN has been a member of TEIN since 2012. PSTU has a team of professionally skilled network engineers which put PSTU in an ideal position to host such a training workshop.

 

Program:

The 5-day workshop covered major topics and issues relating to campus network, including network performance, management, monitoring, routing, and security. Participants attended theoretical sessions in the classroom and practical session in the labs. This training program was followed by an evaluation program and certificates were awarded to the successful candidates.

 

Impact:

By attending this workshop, participants acquired the required skills to maintain and manage BGP routing, VLANs, firewalls and security, network servers, wireless LAN, Radius server for authentication, NMS (Cacti) configuration, etc. for their campus LAN. Participants have created an online collaborative group where they can share network issues, solutions and best practice. After returning from the workshop, they are now expected to deploy network monitoring and management tools at their own campus.
