Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Online Training

In this intermediate networking skills training, Anthony Sequeira covers the material on Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) portion from the JN0-343 exam, which was formerly the exam required to earn the JNCIS-ENT certification.

The JN0-343 exam has been replaced with the JN0-348 exam, but BGP remains the only exterior gateway protocol in major use today, and this training remains relevant to understanding its near-magical properties. From BGP peerings to authentication, there’s a ton to learn about BGP. Knowing BGP is essential for network engineers who operate large networks, and Anthony takes a deep dive into the protocol that makes the internet function.

Once you're done with this networking skills training, you'll know how to use the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) protocol. Follow along with Anthony as you learn about advanced BGP topics, including graceful restart, outbound route filters (ORF), and multiprotocol BGP. By completing this Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) training, network engineers will be better suited to get more senior roles, like network architect.

For anyone who manages their networking training, this networking training can be used for BGP training and familiarity, onboarding new network engineers, individual or team training plans, or as a networking reference resource.

Who Should Take Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Training?

This Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) training is considered engineer-level networking training, which means it was designed for network engineers. This Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with network infrastructure and experienced network engineers looking to validate their networking skills.

New or aspiring network engineers. If you’re a new network engineer and you think you might deal with external networks, getting Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) training early can help make sure you understand how packets get routed by autonomous systems throughout the world. Navigate, configure, monitor and troubleshoot network traffic that uses BGP as an expert after getting this training.

Experienced network engineers. Even for network engineers with several years of experience, the intricacies of that ‘postal code of the Internet’ can be a bit beyond them. Whether it’s route flap dampening, redistributing network layer information or just authenticating the traffic that passes through your nodes, make sure you’re deeply confident with BGP with this training.
