Your ISP will provide either the full routing table of the internet, a partial table or a default route.

Regardless which option they choose, you don't need to implement static routing to reach the internet. BGP should take care of it.


Our internet site will move to other location. We will setup temp ip and AS number to test BGP, then do hot cut over from old site to new site and still use ip and AS number in the old site. How long will be waiting BGP table update with ip and AS number? Does depends on ISP side or our side?

When the BGP neighbor relationship come up, it will send all the routes in the update as per the configured ISP policy. As said by edison thois could be full BGP table, a partial one or just a default route.

The only thing you should worry about is whether your router is capable of taking the full internet table if configured likewise.

HTH, rate if it does
