This book is a guide to all aspects of BGP: the protocol, its configuration and operation in an Internet environment, and how to troubleshooting it. Although the examples throughout this book are for Cisco routers, the techniques discussed can be applied to any BGP-capable router.
The topics include: Requesting an AS number and IP addresses Route filtering by remote ISPs and how to avoid this Configuring the initial BGP setup Balancing the available incoming or outgoing traffic over the available connections Securing and troubleshooting BGP BGP in larger networks: interaction with internal routing protocols, scalability issues BGP in Internet Service Provider networks The book is filled with numerous configuration examples with more complex case studies at the end of the book to strengthen your understanding.
BGP is for anyone interested in creating reliable connectivity to the Internet. Review: Border Gateway Protocol BGP governs the exchange of routing information among autonomous networks, ensuring that packets can get from point A to point B regardless of most possible problems. BGP explores the capabilities and limitations of this exquisitely important protocol with an eye to teaching network engineers how to build systems that are faster, less costly, and more survivable than ever before.
Authors of protocol-centric books risk becoming bogged down in bits. Iljitsch van Beijnum avoids overwhelming his readers with packet diagrams and message analysis, choosing instead to focus on how routers use BGP to efficiently use available connections he focuses on Cisco Systems routers in his configuration examples, but the concepts apply universally.
He understands, and conveys to his readers through network diagrams, configuration listings, and diagnostic traces, that BGP is a tool for managing the points at which networks intersect. Sections deal with addressing, bandwidth provisioning, traffic engineering, system monitoring, selecting and interconnecting with Internet Service Providers ISPs , and troubleshooting.
He has configured the protocol on single-router networks; networks with several hundred Ciscos ranging from the slowest to the fastest available; and multivendor environments with BGP running on Cisco and Juniper routers, Extreme switches, and FreeBSD hosts running GNU Zebra "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Obviously, prices vary, sometimes significantly. I chose the lowest prices, except if only a couple of no-brand options were the cheapest. But you can do that overnight. I can still read most but not all!
