Course Outline
Learn to optimally deploy BGP in your network.

In this comprehensive course, you will gain in-depth knowledge of BGP, the routing protocol that is one of the underlying foundations of the Internet. You will explore the theory of BGP, configuration of BGP on Cisco IOS routers, and detailed troubleshooting information.

Our enhanced hands-on labs provide you with the skills needed to configure and troubleshoot BGP networks in both enterprise and service provider environments. You'll also learn BGP network design issues and usage rules for various features as well as how to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free BGP networks.

What You'll Learn
  • Implement the correct BGP configuration to allow your network to act as an ISP
  • Configure BGP with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systems
  • Configure a provider network to behave as a transit autonomous system (AS)
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot basic BGP to enable inter-domain routing in a network scenario with multiple domains
  • Use BGP policy controls to influence the route selection process with minimal impact on BGP route processing in a network scenario where you must support connections to multiple ISPs
  • Configure BGP to connect the customer network to the Internet when multiple connections must be implemented
  • Enable route reflection and confederations as possible solutions to BGP scaling issues
  • Optimize the scalability of the BGP routing protocol in a typical network
Who Needs to Attend
  • Internet Service Providers
  • Networking professionals who need to connect to ISPs
  • CCIP and CCIE certification candidates
  • Otherindividuals who need to understand how to configure Cisco routers for the BGP protocol

The instructor was knowledgeable in Word 2010 and very pleasant to work with. My problem was with the technology used, being it was a virtual session. There were too many instances where I had to log on, too much lag, audio problems on both my end and the trainers side of things. Perhaps the pre-test should also include an audio aspect in order to trouble-shoot audio problems prior to the beginning of the class session.

I do not feel as though I learned any new skills from taking this course. I did enjoy some of the course material but there was something missing from it. Very basic, highly repetitive. Everyone knows how to make a "to do" list but how to you prioritize and create focus in your daily work? I still am not sure of that. Although the instructor was very good and knowledgeable, someone with more energy and enthusiasm would have been better suited to teach this course as it became a little dull in the afternoon.

Could possibly have been a 4 day course rather than 5 but there were people going at different speeds so the pace accommodated everyone.

Perhaps a less experienced instructor would be better to teach the more basic material. While our instructor was very knowledgeable, she seemed lost in some of the more basis functions and interfaces at times (probably because she hasn't had to work with them regularly for years). Could have spent A LOT less time going off on stories/tangents or explaining the lab/e-reader interface quirks, but overall a decent class with a few good pointers here and there.

The textbook(s) given for this course (ICND1v2) do not do very well when it comes to explaining the various acronyms and abbreviations when they first show up in the text. Many of these acronyms / abbreviations are not industry standards but rather Cisco-specific terms and the Glossary at the end(s) do not contain a full suite of the terms that are referenced throughout the text, leaving the reader to search for their meanings elsewhere...

I would like to have had more in-depth work on the process analysis portion and less on modelling. From the outline, I thought there would be more focus on analysis than there was. I think the course could maybe be 5 days instead of 4, or maybe state that knowledge of modelling is a requirement to take this course. Other than that, it was a good course. Good for more entry-level BA types; if you have a lot of experience, you will probably find it doesn't add that much.
