Best Practices for Architecting Robust BGP Routing Policies – The Global Carrier

What actually makes good routing policies "good"? The telecom industry has mostly focused on teaching each other how to implement BGP features in their networks, but there has been very little dialogue on how to design robust policies. Many global carriers do not even educate their customers on how to use and take advantage of them. In this webinar NTT Com and the Global IP Network will offer a conceptual model to look at routing policies, offer terminology to help discus them, and analyse routing policy design patterns and best practices. NTT Com will also share its experience from creating and deploying large scale complex routing policies in a carrier IP network that you can use to sharpen up your routing policy or even build one from scratch.
