Abstract: This tutorial covers common problems ISPs have when deploying BGP within their networks. We look at issues with peer establishment, missing routes, inconsistent route selection, and convergence issues. We also examine real-world examples of common errors that are made when deploying BGP, both as iBGP and eBGP, in service provider networks.
