USC Introduction to BGP

The Introduction to BGP labs allow learners to gain skills using and configuring Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).

Lab Details

The Introduction to BGP labs allow learners to gain skills using and configuring Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). BGP is an exterior gateway protocol designed to exchange routing and reachability information on the internet.

The development of this lab series was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation Award 1829698 “CyberTraining CIP: Cyberinfrastructure Expertise on High-throughput Networks for Big Science Data Transfers” at the University of South Carolina (UofSC). The labs provide hands-on training in the technologies used to build and configure high-speed networks.
