Border Gateway Protocol, Route Manipulation, and IP Multicast

Chapter Description

Anthony Bruno and Steve Jordan covers the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), route summarization and redistribution of route information between routing protocols, policy-based routing (PBR), and IP multicast protocols for use in preparation for the CCDA exam.

Foundation Topics

The "Foundation Topics" section includes discussions of BGP, PBR, route redistribution, and IP multicast protocols. The "BGP" section covers the characteristics and design of BGP. eBGP exchanges routes between autonomous systems. eBGP is commonly used between enterprises and their service providers.

The section "Route Manipulation" covers how you use PBR to change packets' destination addresses based on policies. This section also covers route summarization and redistribution of route information between routing protocols.

The section "IP Multicast Review" covers multicast protocols such as IGMP, Cisco Group Management Protocol (CGMP), and Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM).
