Book: IP Routing Protocols All-in-one OSPF EIGRP ISIS BGP with Hands on Labs

Focusing on Cisco Routers, I wrote this book to show how to implement and optimize OSPF, IS-IS, EIGRP and BGP by exploring:

OSPF: Area Types with optimization, LSA Types, the logic of Intra-area, inter-area and external routes, Virtual-link and route filtering, Loop Prevention mechanisms and MPLS with the concepts of sham link and Down bit.
EIGRP: concept of stub and maximum prefix limit for optimization, route filtering using different methods, route leaking, in-depth exploration of successor and feasible successor, EIGRP Named Mode and redistribution between two autonomous systems.
IS-IS: concept of Level 1 and Level 2 routes, IS-IS adjacencies and DIS in broadcast network, the logic of intra-area and inter-area routes, route leaking and ATT bit.
BGP: attributes and path selection, exploration of MED, Local Preference, weight, AS-path and community attributes, route filtering and ORF (Outbound Route Filtering), Attribute-map and Unsuppress-map, confederation, peer group and route reflector features.

Through all these scenarios covering all the stuff covered above, the book is good resource to cement the theory you learned. It transforms what you have learned in your study guides into valuable skills you will be using from day one on your job as a network engineer.

Knowing the theory alone is no longer enough to master routing protocols. Mastering the practice part is very important to be able to configure, troubleshoot routing protocols where you must quickly and accurately diagnose and repair network faults on routers.
