A detailed study of BGP and core MPLS, from the basics of how it works through to advanced issues such as route reflectors, policy, filtering, route selection and routing registries. Practical hands on with Cisco routers follow the major sessions to reinforce the theory. Juniper configurations are also explored in the theory sessions.

TCP/IP Foundation for engineers

Definitive IP routing for engineers

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Connect enterprises to the Internet, and ISPs to each other.
  • Describe how BGP works. List, describe and configure the main BGP attributes.
  • Implement and troubleshoot BGP.
  • Work with route aggregation and calculate CIDR prefixes in seconds.
  • Influence traffic paths with BGP.
  • Implement and troubleshoot MPLS.

Basic BGP

IGPs, EGPs, What’s BGP? BGP RIB, in/out process, tables peers, adding routes.

Hands on Simple configuration and troubleshooting.

The Internet and peering

ASs, AS numbers, Internet structure, ISP types, ISP network design, IXs, peering vs. transit, public/private peering, bi/multi-lateral peering.

How BGP works

Incremental updates, Path vector protocols, BGP protocol stack, the BGP header, message types, NLRI, withdrawn routes, route refresh, route dampening.

Hands on More troubleshooting, packet analysis.

MBGP

Hands on IPv6

BGPv4 aggregation

CIDR, benefits, techniques, shortcuts, configuring BGP aggregation, leaking routes.

Hands on Reducing routing table size.

BGP path selection

BGP attributes, attribute types, route selection order, Local preference, AS prepend, MEDs.

Hands on Influencing traffic with BGP.

BGP routing policies

What is policy? Examples, route filtering, AS filtering, REs, applying preference selectively, peer groups.

Hands on Sophisticated policies.

RIPE and routing registries

RIRs, Allocations, assignments, PI vs. PA. Objects, RPSL, whois, routing registry, IRRToolSet.

Hands on The RIPE database.
