Border Gateway Protocol

The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routes data packets on the internet. It is the routingprotocol responsible for interpreting where to send data and finding the best route for it to take. The internet consists of many different interconnected networks called autonomous systems (AS). The Border Gateway Protocol helps these large networks communicate with each other by exchanging routing information.

In short, BGP enables networks to communicate by exchanging routing information between them. It also ensures that data travels from its source to its destination in the most efficient way. There usually is more than one route possible between source and destination. And BGP finds valid and fastest routes for any given session.
