Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
Anyone who works on large networks should take this Border Gateway Protocol because it delivers the knowledge and skills necessary for getting network traffic interfaced with autonomous systems. You should take this BGP training because misconfiguring Border Gateway Protocol on network devices can lead to expensive and messy network problems or can even lead to a total halt of network operations and with this training you can make sure traffic gets to where it belongs.
No, this BGP course doesn't prepare you for any particular certification. This Border Gateway Protocol course was developed independently of any specific certification and instead is designed to provide a network engineer with a thorough understanding of BGP's intricacies. So although this course isn't associated with a certification, it can help you prepare for advanced certifications that test knowledge of enterprise routing, switching and networking, as those will feature BGP.
We use Border Gateway Protocol because it's an international standard for autonomous systems all over the Internet to discover one another and exchange routing information. In other words, we all use BGP because everyone uses BGP. BGP is like the Post Office – it's the globally agreed-upon method for entire networks to find one another and make sure that no emails, webpages, data or traffic gets lost along the way.
Anyone who needs mastery over basic and advanced BGP configurations should take this course. If any part of your job is understanding and manipulating the paths that data takes while it transits your network, you should take this BGP course. This course covers everything from fundamental BGP configurations like forming neighbors to advanced configurations like redistributing OMP into BGP while deploying BGP in software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs).
