BGP: Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers

The Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP) v.4.0 course teaches the underlying foundations of the Internet and new-world technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS).

This course prepares students to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free BGP networks, covering:

  • The theory of BGP and configuration of BGP on Cisco IOS routers
  • Detailed troubleshooting information and hands-on exercises that provide students with the skills needed to configure and troubleshoot BGP networks in customer environments
  • BGP network design issues and usage rules for various BGP features

Audience:

Network administrators, Network engineers, Network managers and Systems engineers (who would like to implement BGP).

Prerequisites:

Attendees should meet the following prerequisites:

  • Intermediate to advanced knowledge of Cisco IOS Software configuration
  • Configuring and troubleshooting RIP, EIGRP, OSPF and IS-IS
  • Skills and knowledge equivalent to those learned in these courses:
    • Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA)
    • Implementing Cisco Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI)
    • Implementing and Operating Cisco Service Provider Core Technologies (SPCOR)

Course objectives

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

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