I have arrived at a new situation and they are asking if bgp is an option, I dont beleieve they need it but here are the params. Network consists of two T1s via dif isps. we have five remote office that use frame to conncct to us, and we have 16 offices worldwide that use difrent types of connectivity to access us via Secure VPN. local router is a 3300 series router , I dont beleive that bgp will be a benifit to us but any thoughts on thte matter would be appreciated.
If you have two connections, one to each ISP, I do suggest BGP. When you start routing statically with two ISP's, it can get tricky, or cause un-needed outages in the event of a link failure. You could always use floating statics, but then you have more time invested than needed.
First off, since you are going through two ISP, I gather you are supporting two distint IP networks. BGP in your case is not needed, because both ISP's are going to advertise default routes to your network. You can work with your internal routers as to how you want to populate those defaults to achive route load balance.
To support BGP, you would need to register for an AS, as well as an IP block assign to that AS.
Thanks for the input, we have an AS and several class c's although we are enertaining the notion of dropping the other isp alltogether and just having a shadow T1 from the same provider provisioned from a diferent POP. we are looking at all options at this time . Thanks :)
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
