What you'll learn

  • The Course Goal is to provide learners with in-depth knowledge of BGP
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot basic BGP to enable interdomain routing in a network scenario with multiple domains
  • Use BGP policy controls to influence the route selection process
  • Use BGP attributes to influence the route selection process
  • Implement the correct BGP configuration to successfully connect the customer network to the Internet in a network scenario where you must support multiple connections „
  • „ 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 systems „
  • „ Use available BGP tools and features to optimize the scalability of the BGP routing protocol in a typical BGP network


  • Students enrolled in this course should possess a strong knowledge of networking a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and have completed the Network Associate level certification or have the equivalent knowledge and experience.
  • Good Foundation on CCNA RS, CCNP RS Concepts


  • Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the routing technology that enables the largest and most sophisticated network in the world today - the Internet.
  • BGP is also one of the critical underlying foundations of new-world technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS).
  • Trained by expert dual CCIE certified with 15 + years of training and working experience in production networks.
  • Covers Topics as per the Blueprint (In-depth Core Technology Training)
  • Provided with all Virtual Software’s required for Lab
  • Detailed Workbook free access to anyone (Includes presentations, Labs documented with Outputs & Mock labs)
  • Access to Pre-recorded Video recordings Over 54 lectures and 14 hours of content!

This must-have advanced routing course covers the theory of BGP, 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.

  • Different service solutions in the curriculum cover BGP network design issues and usage rules for various BGP features.
  • Upon successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble free BGP networks.
