BGP Essentials: Non-Transit Autonomous System Design

It's evident from the comments to my previous post on the non-transit AS implementation that I forgot to do my homework: I jumped straight into the implementation details without explaining the basics of non-transit AS and associated design rules. I hope I did a better job in a short article “(Non)Transit Autonomous System” which starts with the definition, describes the usual challenges of multi-homed end-users and the non-transit AS design and (at the very end) its implementation.

Cisco partners can test the non-transit AS implementation in the Using Multihomed BGP Networks and Employing AS - Path Filters remote lab exercises. If you're don't have access to Partner Education Connection, you can buy our Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers e-learning solution or the BGP Remote Lab Bundle.
