- BGP connection establishment : used to establish a TCP connection and a BGP session between two routers before they can exchange exterior routing information.
- Border Gateway Protocol : In a set of interconnected networks, the means by which different autonomous systems advertise the destinations to which they offer connectivity
- Computer networking reference models : Add brief definition or description
- Control plane : Functions in a router that tell it how to direct packets through the forwarding plane; include routing protocols that draw the "map" of the network
- Default route : The exit of last resort onto which a router can forward packets whose destination does not match any prefix in the local routing table
- Default-free zone : Routers in the default-free zone (DFZ) have no default routes in their routing information base; they obtain all their routing information from local configuration and routing protocols, especially the Border Gateway Protocol
- Intermediate System-Intermediate System : An interior routing protocol capable of distributing address information from multiple address families; especially popular for large Internet Service Providers and homogeneous networks
- Internet Protocol : Highly resilient protocol for messages sent across the internet, first by being broken into smaller packets (each with the endpoint address attached), then moving among many mid-points by unpredictable routes, and finally being reassembled into the original message at the endpoint. IP version 4 (IPv4) is from 1980 but lacked enough addresses for the entire world and was superseded by IP version 6 (IPv6) in 1998.
- Internet transit provider : A Internet Service Provider that is connected to the default-free zone (DFZ), and, for a payment, will connect customers to the DFZ.
- Internet : International "network of networks" that connects computers together through the Internet Protocol Suite and supports applications like Email and the World Wide Web.
- Open Shortest Path First for IPv6 : A major revision of the Open Shortest Path First interior routing protocol, principally to let it carry both Internet Protocol version 4 and Internet Protocol version 6 information, but also to integrate various incremental enhancements to OSPF
- Open Shortest Path First : Add brief definition or description
- Routing information base : An electronic table (file) or database type object that is stored in a router or a networked computer.
- Routing policy : Add brief definition or description
- Routing : The process of receiving a packet on one interface of a router, validating the packet and forwarding it out the appropriate interface.
- Virtual private network : The emulation of a private Wide Area Network (WAN) facility using IP facilities, including the public Internet or private IP backbones.
