CCIE Data Center BGP


Only basic routing and switching knowledge are required to get benefits from this course!
This course covers the BGP protocol from scratch.


The CCIE Data Center – BGP course is designed to cover all BGP topics and features required in the CCIE Data Center v3.0 lab exam. Also, to provide a complete understanding of BGP protocol in Cisco Nexus platforms.Although this course targets network professionals and data center specialists, you only need to have basic networking knowledge to enroll in this course! The course explains BGP from scratch.This professional development and foundational learning course contains the following:High-quality, technical on-demand videos cover all required topics in the CCIE Data Center lab exam.Lab demos for a better explanation of all features learned in the course.Quizzes to confirm correct understanding.External resources to enrich your BGP knowledge.Packet captures and protocol message formats for detailed information.Downloadable PDF slides for configuration reference and knowledge review.The lectures in this course were divided into 7 sections:BGP Fundamentals: Covers BGP basics, BGP message types, BGP states, and BGP neighborship (peering).BGP Basic Configuration: Covers essential BGP configuration, verification, and troubleshooting.BGP Design Solutions: Covers several BGP Designs: RRs, Confederations, full-mesh, and eBGP Route-server.BGP Path Selection: Covers the best path selection process, by which a BGP router examines the competing BGP paths (routes) in its BGP table for a single prefix, choosing one route as the best route.BGP Route Advertisement: Covers BGP route advertisements using several methods such as network & redistribute commands, conditional advertisements, default routes, and route aggregation.BGP Route Policies: Covers BGP route policies using tools such as AS path manipulation features, route filtering, Regex, Communities, and others.BGP Templates: Learn how to use the BGP template to minimize BGP configuration overhead.
