Regarding point 1, that heavily depends on what you
are using for an edge router, more details would be good.

Subject: BGP deployment
Short time listener & first time
I have some questions regarding, the kind of configuration that is
typically done, on a BGP-enabled router sitting at the edge of the network.
My questions may have already been answered earlier, if that's the case,
then someone please point me to the relevant mails...
1. In general, how many BGP peers should an edge
router be capable
of handling, more
specifically, how many E-BGP peers
many I-BGP peers are typically incident on one edge router.
2. In most
situations the routes to the stub networks are manually injected into
I feel that's the most common
scenario but was wondering if running some IGP
between the stub network and the provider edge router and then
importing the routes
from this IGP into
BGP is also common ? Is this also done frequently enough ?
could be to run a BGP session between the stub network and
provider edge router. Is this preffered ?
help/suggestions would be highly appreciated.
