Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP)

 

Course Overview

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). It 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

Who should attend

  • Network administrators
  • Network engineers
  • Network managers
  • Systems engineers (who would like to implement BGP)

Prerequisites

The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows:

  • 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:
    • CI-CCNA
    • CI-ENARSI
    • CI-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
