Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers v4.0 Training (BGP)


Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers Training (BGP) v4.0 Course Description

The Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers Training (BGP) v4.0 | Cisco BGP training course provides you with in-depth knowledge of BGP, the routing protocol that is one of the underlying foundations of the Internet and new-world technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). This Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers Training v4.0 covers the theory of BGP, configuration of BGP on Cisco IOS routers, detailed troubleshooting information and hands-on exercises that provide you with the skills needed to configure and troubleshoot BGP networks in customer environments. Different service solutions in the curriculum cover BGP network design issues and usage rules for various BGP features, preparing you to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free BGP networks.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers Training (BGP) v4.0 , 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.
