BGP | Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers

BGP | Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers

The Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP) version 4.0 Cisco® Training on Demand course provides you with indepth knowledge of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the routing protocol that is one of the underlying foundations of the Internet, and newer technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). This course prepares you to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free BGP networks.

In addition, you learn the theory of BGP and how to configure BGP on Cisco IOS® routers. You learn detailed troubleshooting information and the skills necessary for configuring and troubleshooting BGP networks in customer environments. Finally, you learn about BGP network design issues and usage rules for various features.



After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Implement the correct BGP configuration to allow your network to act as an ISP
  • Configure BGP with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systems
  • Configure a provider network to behave as a transit autonomous system (AS)
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot basic BGP to enable inter-domain 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
  • Configure BGP to connect the customer network to the Internet when multiple connections must be implemented
  • Enable route reflection and confederations as possible solutions to BGP scaling issues
  • Optimize the scalability of the BGP routing protocol in a typical network


Who should enroll

  • Internet service providers
  • Networking professionals who need to connect to ISPs
  • CCIE certification candidates
  • Individuals who need to understand how to configure Cisco routers for the BGP protocol



The knowledge and skills necessary before attending this course are:

  • Completion of Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices (ICND1) or Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) Completion of Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) or equivalent
