BGP is the only widely implemented exterior gateway protocol (EGP) and the only routing protocol used to link networks to one another on the Internet.
Protocol for communications between a router in one autonomous system and routers in another.
A protocol, defined in RFC 1163 and later refined in RFC 1771, that allows the exchange of packets between networks, such as a company intranet and the Internet.
A protocol for exchanging routing information between gateway hosts (each with its own router) in a network, often the protocol used between gateway hosts on the Internet.
Interdomain routing protocol; exchanges reachability information with other same system-type routers in an Internet core router applications.
An Internet Standard protocol defining the way in which Autonomous Systems exchange routing information.
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the protocol used to determine how to route data from one point on a network to another. At it's simplest, BGP says that a certain IP is controlled by a certain AS, then the router looks to see the closest AS in it's table to get to the end point, the data is handed to that network, and the cycle continues until the end point is reached.
An inter-autonomous system routing protocol. BGP is used to exchange routing information for the Internet and is the protocol used between Internet service providers (ISP).
A routing protocol used between autonomous systems. It is the routing protocol that makes the internet work. BGP is a distance-vector routing protocol that carries connectivity information and an additional set of BGP attributes. These attributes allow for a rich set of policies for deciding what the best route to reach a given destination is.
Intelligent routing software which can identify which path is the most efficient for each data packet, and then route the packet to its destination on the fastest path.
The Border Gateway Protocol is an exterior gateway protocol defined in RFCs 1267 and 1268. It's design is based on experience gained with EGP, as defined in STD 18, RFC 904, and EGP usage in the NSFNET Backbone, as described in RFCs 1092 and 1093. See also: Exterior Gateway Protocol.
This is the protocol used by the core routers on the Internet to route TCP/IP packets. BGP replaces the older Exterior Gateway Protocol. Core routers that use BGP exchange routing information to determine optimal routing paths and also exchange TCP/IP data packets.
A routing protocol used in interdomain routing in large networks to maintain integrity of the network. It allows the routers to exchange only prespecified information with prespecified routers in other domains.
The core routing protocol of the Internet. It works by maintaining a table of IP networks or 'prefixes' which designate network reachability between autonomous systems (AS).
