  • Describe what services are available from AfriNIC
  • Apply for IP number resources from AfriNIC
  • Explain the importance of the policy development process and how to take part in it.
  • Query the whois database

 

Target Audience

  • Network engineers and architects
  • Network technicians and support staff 

 

Pre-requisites

  • IP Addressing and subnetting.
  • The OSI model and the various protocols that operate at each layer.
  • IP routing
