Cisco ROUTE 2.0: Implementing Basic BGP Operations
Anyone wishing to obtain real-world routing knowledge, and those that are considering CCNP and CCIP certification. This learning path’s discussion of routing could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates. Students completing the ROUTE 2.0 learning path should have a solid foundation in routing fundamentals, Cisco IOS basics, and Cisco routing basics. Attending the ICND1 and ICND2 classes or having the CCNA certification will fulfill these expectations.
After successful configuration, BGP will be able to establish a neighbor relationship, set the next-hop address, set the source IP address of a BGP update, and announce networks to other BGP routers. A router that is running BGP goes through several neighbor states through which BGP progresses to establish a BGP session, and offers hints for troubleshooting BGP, because the session can be stuck in the SIA or idle state. This course explains EBGP and IBGP configuration, as well as authentication between neighbors. This course also describes basic BGP configuration, and shows how to use the show and debug commands to monitor BGP operation.
