Course Overview

Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers version 4.0 provides participants with in-depth knowledge of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the routing protocol that is one of the foundations of the Internet and New World technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). This curriculum covers the theory of BGP, configuration of BGP on Cisco IOS routers, detailed troubleshooting information, and hands-on exercises that provide participants with the skills that they need to configure and troubleshoot BGP networks in customer environments. Different service solutions in the curriculum cover BGP network design issues and usage rules for various BGP features, preparing participants to design and implement efficient, optimal, and troublefree BGP networks.

Program Objectives

• Describe how to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot basic BGP to enable interdomain routing in a network scenario with multiple domains

• Describe how to use BGP policy controls to influence the BGP route selection process in a network scenario in which participants must support connections to multiple ISPs

• Describe how to use BGP attributes to influence the route selection process in a network scenario where participants must support multiple connections

• Describe how to successfully connect the customer network to the Internet in a network scenario in which multiple connections must be implemented

• Describe how to configure the service provider network to behave as a transit AS in a typical implementation with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systems

• Enable route reflection as possible solution to BGP scaling issues in a typical service provider network with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systems

• Describe the available BGP tools and features to optimize the scalability of the BGP routing protocol in a typical BGP network
