BGP Training | Border Gateway Protocol Training


BGP Training | Border Gateway Protocol Training Course Description

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the core routing protocol of the Internet. This one-day BGP Training | Border Gateway Protocol Training tutorial provides an intensive discussion of the BGP architecture and operation, transit autonomous systems, route selection using policy controls and attributes, implementation of customer-to-provider connectivity, considerations related to the scaling of service provider networks, optimization of scalability, and deployment considerations. Upon course completion, you will have solid knowledge of this important member of the family of IP routing protocols.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
