Philip Smith joined Cisco Systems in January 1998. He is a member of the Service Provider Architectures Group of Consulting Engineering, within Corporate Development. His role includes working with many ISPs in the Asia-Pacific region and the rest of the world, specifically in network strategies, design, technology, and operations, as well as helping with network configuration and scaling. Other areas of interest also include Internet routing, Internet protocols, IPv6, and encouraging the growth of the Internet around the world. Prior to joining Cisco, he spent 5 years at PIPEX (now part of UUNET\'s global ISP business), the UK\'s first commercial Internet Service Provider. He was one of the first engineers working in the UK Internet, and played a fundamental role in building the modern Internet in the UK and Europe.

Abstract: The tutorial introduces service providers to some more advanced BGP features and techniques to aid with operating their networks within the Internet. After a recap of iBGP, eBGP, and common attributes, the tutorial will look at the various scaling techniques available, when to use BGP instead of an IGP, and examine policy options available through the use of local preference, MED and communities. The tutorial then looks at common deployment scenarios as used in ISP networks, before finishing off with some of the newer configuration features available.
