The importance of BGP in networks today is greater than ever as more and more data and services depend on Internet connectivity and the routing capabilities of BGP. Border Gateway Protocol also finds its place within organizations to ensure scalability and new features such as MPLS VPNs.

Anthony Sequeira's latest course, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), covers the technical concepts of this external gateway protocol including its basic operations, eBGP/iBGP configurations, prefix advertisement, multiprotocol BGP, optimizations, and policy mechanisms.

You might notice that we're expanding on the core learning principle of "One Concept, One Nugget" by producing skill-based modules for complicated technical courses. Because there's a lot of information about BGP, Anthony's course is broken up into six modules:

  1. Basic Operations

  2. Peerings

  3. Advertising NLRI

  4. Cisco Routing Policy Mechanisms

  5. Scalability Mechanisms

  6. Advanced Topics

You'll find Anthony's Border Gateway Protocol course particularly useful if you're studying for IT vendor certifications like Cisco, Juniper, Palo Alto, and AWS.
