BGP was designed to be able to carry any information regarding prefixes and features, a very unique configuration compared to IGPs. In this course, you'll learn how to leverage BGP address families. Next, you'll examine the static configuration of peers and unique parameters based on IBGP or EBGP peerings. You'll explore private AS numbers, as well as 4 byte AS numbers in BGP. It is critical you understand these topics when designing and implementing BGP solutions. Finally, you'll learn about the various neighbor states used by BGP. Knowledge in this area will help you when performing advanced troubleshooting techniques for BGP neighborship issues. This course is one of a series that prepares you for the 300-410: Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI) certification exam.
