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 Summary

The "Foundation Summary" section of each chapter lists the most important facts from the chapter. Although this section does not list every fact from the chapter that will be on the CCDA exam, a well-prepared CCDA candidate should at a minimum know all the details in each "Foundation Summary" before taking the exam.

This chapter covered the following topics that you need to master for the CCDA exam:

  • BGP—The characteristics and design of BGP.
  • Route manipulation—How you use PBR to change the destination address of packets based on policies. This material also covers route summarization and the redistribution of routes between routing protocols.
  • IP multicast protocols—Multicast protocols such as IGMP, CGMP, and PIM.

The material summarized next can help you review some of these topical areas.
