I’ve given this tutorial quite a few times now and several people have asked me to make it publicly available. This is very much geared towards non-technical folks who would like to have a better understanding of how routing in the Internet works.
It covers a brief history of the Internet and evolution of dynamic routing protocols, as well as high-level coverage of link-state vs. distance vector IGPs in addition to discussing EGPs and their role in the exchange of routing information between Autonomous Systems. It also has a few slides on QoS, MPLS, and IPv6.
I would still like to make some modifications to a few of the slides as well as adding more content around MPLS and the future of IP. I will also eventually add a voice-over to turn this into a true slide-cast. In the meantime, I’ve put it up on my slideshare account for those of you who would like to have access to it.
