This self-study technical course provides students 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). It prepares students to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free BGP networks.


This curriculum covers:

  • 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)

Course 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

What you will learn

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot basic BGP to enable inter-domain routing in a network scenario with multiple domains
  • Use BGP policy controls to influence the route selection process with minimal impact on BGP route processing in a network scenario where you must support connections to multiple ISPs
  • Use BGP attributes to influence the route selection process in a network scenario where you must support multiple connections
  • Implement the correct BGP configuration to successfully connect the customer network to the Internet in a network scenario where you must support multiple connections
  • Enable the provider network to behave as a transit autonomous system in a typical service provider network with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systems
  • Identify common BGP scaling issues and enable route reflection and confederations as possible solutions to these issues in a typical service provider network with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous system

What’s included

Course content is presented in easily-consumable segments via both instructor video and text. Interactivity is enabled through Discovery labs, content review questions, and graded Challenge labs and tests. This makes the learning experience hands-on, increasing course effectiveness, and provides students direct feedback on how well they have mastered the material. Gamification features are built in, including earning badges, achievements, and a leaderboard, to encourage better performance.
