The use of BGP as a routing protocol within the enterprise network requires that an administrator understand how to properly configure BGP for scalable internetworking. BGP is used in performing policy-based routing and in order to manipulate the best paths chosen by BGP, a network administrator must understand the different attributes that BGP uses and how BGP selects the best path based on these attributes.
This course covers BGP configuration and verification when connecting an enterprise network to ISP networks. The BGP path selection process and attributes, their characteristics and the configuration steps using different attributes for selecting a BGP path are discussed, and route filtering using route maps and prefix lists are also explained.
