Phil Smith, Cisco Systems

Philip Smith has been with Cisco Systems for three years. He is part of the Internet Architectures Group, which is led by the CTO for Consulting Engineering. His role includes working with many ISPs in the Asia Pacific region, specifically in network design, configuration, and scaling, as well as providing training through an extensive ISP Workshop program.<BR> <BR> Prior to joining Cisco, Philip spent five years in several key network engineering and operations roles 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 commercial Internet in the UK, and played a key role in building the modern Internet in Europe.
Abstract: This tutorial introduces service providers to some more advanced BGP features and techniques to aid with operating their networks within the Internet. After a brief 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 will then briefly cover some basic multihoming techniques, before finishing with a look at some of the facilities available for debugging problems in BGP networks.
