Can anyone recommed a good book that explains BGP in depth?
The only I can find is Sam Halabi's "Internet Routing Architectures, 2nd Edition," but this book was published in 2000.
Thanks in advance.
Practical BGP by Russ White, Danny McPherson, Sangli Srihari published in 2004 in Addison Wesley is also a good one.
BGP chapter in "Routing TCP/IP vol 2" by Jeff Doyle can work for basics.
I also heard John Stewart's "BGP4: Inter-Domain Routing on the Internet" (Addison-Wesley 1998)was a short but very good book - but not read it myself.
thats a great book if you are looking for "in-depth BGP". I have that in my shelf plus "BGP - Beijnum (O'REILLY)" and "CCIE Professional Development: Cisco BGP-4 Command and Configuration Handbook - Parkhurst (Cisco Press)"
I concur with Maria and Edison. This book is still very current to learn the basics of BGP.
Yes, I agree. This is a great book. BGP has not changed that much since then. The core ideas are the same. I read this book in 5 days at work (I could not put it down). It can help you understand what routing in the Internet (and in general) means. After you read this, you might go after "BGP Design and Implementation" by Randy Zhang and Micah Bartell. Also consider "Cisco ISP Essentials" by Barry Raveendran Greene and Philip Smith for further reading, depending on your requirements.
..and it's still considered the bible. You don't need any other book, don't be concerned that was written in 2000.
