BGP is designed to interconnect different enterprises or organizations using different Autonomous Systems.
BGP provides scalability: actually the current internet could not be handled by any IGP: 300,000 routes!!
even ISIS cannot handle so many routes.
BGP has a rich toolset: BGP best path decision uses a hierarchy of criteria that goes beyond the calculation of a scalar metric. We could define BGP a protocol that uses a multi dimension vector/array of parameters as its metric.
For example think of BGP local preference or BGP weight : we can use this to prefer routes originated by different routers.
This allows for implementing complex policies that take in account multiple factors.
BGP is needed when there are multiple exit points to the internet and you want to control how these exit points are used.
The BGP protocol it self is not designed as an Intradomain IGP, its Inter domain routing protocol carries information between different ASs. unlike OSPF, which is designed as intrad domain IGP although it has heriarchical architecture but its not designed to carry information between different Autherities.
Another Good point for using BGP rather than Interior GW protocols like OSPF or Eigrp, is that flapping on the IGPs doesnt affect the BGP operation. This is one of the key factor behind the protocol design.
Question We run asr9001 with XR 6.1.3, and we have a very long delay to
login w/ SSH 1 or 2 to the device compare to IOS device. After
investigation, the there is 1s delay between the client KEXDH_INIT and
the server (XR) KEXDH_REPLY. After debug ssh serv...
Introduction The purpose of this document is to demonstrate the Open
Shortest Path First (OSPF) behavior when the V-bit (Virtual-link bit) is
present in a non-backbone area. The V-bit is signaled in Type-1 LSA only
if the router is the endpoint of one or ...
Hi, I am seeing quite a few issues with patch install and wanted to
share my experience and workaround to this. Login to admin via CLI, then
access root with the “shell” command Issue “df –h” and you’ll probably
see the following directory full or nearly ...
