Advanced BGP

Border gateway protocol—or BGP, for short—is the primary routing protocol that’s used to exchange networks and manage traffic on the internet. You might already know what BGP is, or even how to effectively configure it. But if you’re looking to learn more about advanced techniques, this course was designed just for you.

Join instructor Jarrel Rivera as he covers the more advanced BGP configurations. Explore a wide variety of configuration options that you can apply directly to your networks, including route reflectors, confederations, aggregate addresses, and more. Along the way, Jarrel shows you how to filter BGP routes using access lists, prefix-lists, and route maps, sharing practical tips for best path selection with path attributes like weight, local preference, AS path, and multi-exit discriminator. Upon completing this course, you’ll be ready to apply the commands you’ve learned and become a more nuanced network administrator.
