Philip Smith, Cisco Systems

Philip Smith has been with Cisco Systems since 1998 and is based in Brisbane, Australia. He is a Consulting Engineer, part of the Service Provider Architectures Group in Corporate Development. His role includes working with many ISPs in the Asia Pacific region, specifically in network strategies, technology, design and operations, configuration and scaling. As part of an ISP and Internet education initiative, Philip runs several Routing and Internet Technology Workshops in the Asia Pacific region. He also assists as co-instructor at similar events in many other parts of the world. Philip also is closely involved in regional activities, being chair of the APRICOT Management Committee, chair of APOPS, member of the organising and programme committees for SANOG and PacNOG, as well as chair of APNIC\'s Routing and Internet Exchange Point Special Interest Groups. Prior to joining Cisco, he spent five years at PIPEX (now integrated into MCI\'s global network business), the UK\'s first commercial Internet Service Provider. He was one of the first engineers working in the commercial Internet in the UK, and played a key role in building the modern Internet in 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 deployment techniques, including aggregation, announcing and receiving prefixes, pressure points on the routing system, and some of the newer features available.
