BGP: Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers v3.2
5 Days
Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP) v3.2 provides students with in-depth knowledge of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the routing protocol that is one of the underlying 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 learners 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 learners to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free BGP networks.
Upon completing this course, you will be able to meet these objectives:
• Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot basic BGP to enable interdomain routing in a network scenario with multiple domains
• Use BGP policy controls to influence the route selection process with minimal impact on BGP route processing in a network scenario where you must support connections to multiple ISPs
• Use BGP attributes to influence the route selection process in a network scenario where you must support multiple connections
• Implement the correct BGP configuration to successfully connect the customer network to the Internet in a network scenario where you must support multiple connections
• Enable the provider network to behave as a transit AS in a typical service provider network with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systems
• Identify common BGP scaling issues and enable route reflection and confederations as possible solutions to these issues in a typical service provider network with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systems
• Use available BGP tools and features to optimize the scalability of the BGP routing protocol in a typical BGP network
Internet Service Providers, networking professionals who need to connect to ISPs, CCIP and CCIE certification candidates, and other individuals who need to understand how to configure Cisco routers for the BGP protocol
The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course include:
• Cisco CCENT or CCNA certification or the equivalent in knowledge and experience
