MP-eBGP Configuration

Some information on how to configure multiprotocol extended Border Gateway Protocol (MP-EBGP). Extended BGP allows for the transport of routing information for multiple network layer protocols IPv6, VPNv4, and others. MP-BGP allows you to have a unicast routing topology different from a multicast routing topology, which helps to control the network and resources.

In this example, the R1 and R3 routers are configured to be in AS 5500 forming iBGP. The R2 router is configured to be in AS 6500. The R1 and R2 routers communicate with each other using MP-EBGP.
