ANC - Annual Networking Convention

NETRONiX, credited to be the largest and most active technical society of GIKI, has been entrusted the task of administering and maintaining one of the largest LAN setups in the country, leaving no stone unturned to achieve an immaculate system. Keeping in view the international trends, members of NETRONiX have conducted several networking workshops to help GIKI students better understand the network they operate within. After organizing networking workshops by renowned speakers from all over Pakistan and the success of previous ANCs, we present ANC '19.

ANC serves as a talent hunt in the networking arena of Pakistan by holding networking seminars and workshops on server/router configurations, network designing, network security and network troubleshooting.

This year, NETRONiX is taking ANC to a whole new level by introducing two separate modules for the participants to give them more variety in their learning experience.

Both the modules will be conducted within a period of two days and the participants can register for the modules of their choice beforehand.

Modules

1. Networking Debutant

Here, the participants will learn networking from scratch. They will be given lessons from Networking 101 course and they will cover the basics of networking theory.

They will get hands on experience using Linux operating system and its basic commands.

The purpose of this module is to give a basic understanding of how a computer network works will all the networking topologies involved.

2. Networking Maestro

For users who want to take networking to the next level, this is introduced as an advance networking session.

Participants will get hands-on experience setting up a network lab. They will be taught how to configure DHCP and DNS servers on their own. They will have command on configuring Cisco and Juniper switches.

The emphasis of this module will be more on hands on experience than on theory in order for the participants to learn more quickly and effectively.

The theory will, however, be covered in parallel with the practical work.
