BGP Route Reflector Clusters – BGP route reflectors, used as an alternate method to full mesh IBGP, help in scaling. BGP route reflector cluster is used to provide redundancy in a BGP RR design. BGP Route reflectors and RR clients create a cluster. (Cluster = BGP RR + BGP RR Clients)
BGP Optimal Route Reflection provides Optimal Routing for the Route Reflector Clients without sending all available paths.
I was in London last week for CCDE Training. During the training, there was a discussion on Financial network design and one of the students explained how they designed their financial world-wide network.
What is AIGP – Accumulated IGP Metric Attribute? Where AIGP is used? AIGP stands for Accumulated IGP Metric Attribute which is specified in RFC 7311. IGPs (Interior Gateway Protocols) are designed to run within a single administrative domain and they make path-selection decision based on metric value.
What is Optimal Routing and Suboptimal Routing in Networking? This may be seen very easy for some of you but let’s make a philosophy a little bit, means let’s design around optimal routing.
