Hands-On
BGP Routing
 
Course Description
This Hands-On course on BGP Routing (Border Gateway Protocol), from the basics of how it works through to advanced issues such as route reflectors, policy, filtering, route selection and routing registries. This course covers BGP routing in depth, from basics to important issues such as graded dampening and filtering. Practical Hands-On labs configurations are also incorporated to your specific equipment and configurations.

This course is a must for anyone looking for Practical knowledge and experience with BGP routing. This course is not geared to any specific exam, pre-study and or testing questions. This course just sets focus on today's support and use of BGP Routing.

Equipment Requirements
(This apply's to our hands-on courses only)
BTS always provides equipment to have a very successful Hands-On course. BTS also encourages all attendees to bring their own equipment to the course. This will provide attendees the opportunity to incorporate their own gear into the labs and gain valuable training using their specific equipment.
Course Length
