In this course, Cisco Enterprise Networks: BGP and Path Control, you'll learn how to configure, tune, and troubleshoot BGP. First, you'll learn BGP concepts and configuration. Next, you'll discover path control and redistribution. After that, you'll learn about virtual private networks. Finally, you'll explore policy based routing. When you're finished with this course, you'll know how to configure BGP and how to redistribute between BGP and other routing protocols. Software required: IOS 15.
