As the senior network engineer for a large international company you are always trying to optimize your network and get the most out of your time. The network has a lot of IBGP routers and you got sick of configuring all those neighbor peerings. To fix this you configured the network with some route reflectors…this has saved you a lot of work but you want to take it one step further by clustering the network.
- All IP addresses have been preconfigured for you. You don’t see them in the topology picture or it would look like a picasso painting.
- Each router has a loopback0 interface.
- All routers belong to AS 1.
- Configure router Tilburg as the route-reflector for router Amsterdam and Utrecht. Use cluster-ID 126.96.36.199.
- Configure router NewYork as the route-reflector for router LosAngeles and Boston. Use cluster-ID 188.8.131.52.
- Configure router Hamburg as the route-reflector for router Dusseldorf and Berlin. Use cluster-ID 184.108.40.206
- Configure router Tilburg,Newyork and Hamburg with the correct IBGP neighbor peerings.
- Advertise all loopback0 interfaces in BGP.
- Ensure you have full reachability within AS 1. All loopback0 interfaces should be reachable.
