So we just came back from a two-day Safari conference organized by Cisco in Lagos to bring together different academies who participated in Cisco Evolution Migration last month. The event was hosted by University of Lagos and some prominent people from Unilag and Cisco where in attendance. They include a representative of the Ogun State Governor, Cisco General Manager, Nigeria, Cisco Sub-Sahara Manager, Bingham University, American University of Nigeria, University of Jos to name a few. Also, some interesting presentations from Gabriel and Renaldo of the American University of Nigeria who presented ways to get more out of Cisco Packet Tracer, IPv6 etc. Some Academies where also recognized and awarded certificates and gifts for their in-depth participation in the Cisco Academy Program. I have posted some pictures from the event, Enjoy!

Written by Mfawa Alfred Onen on . Posted in Cisco

I have always be puzzled and amazed by Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and its technical jargons. I was privileged to write a short absolute beginner introduction and article for Nigerian Network Administrators group at LinkedIn and will like to share it with you all. Happy reading and I will follow this with a video walk through showing a simple MPLS VPN setup and configuration using Cisco 7200 routers on GNS3. I hope you enjoy this…
