Course Description

One thing that makes BGP very unique is that it does not rely on a single value or metric in order to make pathing decisions. There are many attributes that you can manipulate in order to engineer paths. In this course, you'll explore the different categories of attribute and examples of each. You'll move on to look at BGP route reflectors, which are a simple and effective method of avoiding the need for a full mesh of IBGP speakers. You'll learn how how they function and how they are configured. Finally, you'll learn about different methods of setting BGP routing policies, including route filtering and path manipulation using popular techniques. This course is one of a series that prepares you for the 300-410: Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI) certification exam.
