BGP or Border Gateway Protocol is now a topic on the CCNA exam. You will need to learn BGP for your CCNA exam.

On the exam topics, we can do search for BGP and in the list of topics we have configure and verify single-homed branch connectivity using eBGP IPv4. This is limited to peering and route advertisement using the network command only.

BGP is an exterior gateway protocol or EGP, that is different to protocols such as EIGRP or OSPF which are IGPs also called Internal Gateway Protocols. Exterior gateway protocols such as BGP are used between autonomous systems whereas IGP are used within autonomous systems. BGP is used on the internet.

There are two versions of BGP: EBGP and IBGP. EBGP is the focus of the CCNA course, EBGP runs between autonomous systems and IBGP can be used within an autonomous system. In a similar way to OSPF or EIGRP, BGP is a very large topic and you can spend many hours and many days studying BGP.

BGP however for the CCNA is limited to this use case. In other words, it’s a basic introduction to BGP but you need to learn the basics of BGP and there are few things that you need to be aware of which can trip you up or cause problems in the exam. So make sure that you can both configure and do some troubleshooting with BGP.
