For those of you who don’t know, the IETF publishes these documents called BCPs (Best Common Practice). These documents are useful to see what the Internet community believes is a best practice for a particular deployment type. I think these could be useful for CCDE study – not only because one of them is referred to on the written outline (BCP38) – but because they contain some very useful design information. BCP121, for example, contains MSDP deployment scenarios.
Here’s the full listing of BCP documents.
BCP128 – Avoiding ECMP in MPLS networks looks interesting.
