This lab explores the entire workflow with the day-0 to day-N deployment considerations of a typical router for a particular BGP use case. It focuses on all the new capabilities of IOS-XR and the way the capabilities interconnect to reduce time to deployment and OPEX and provide real-time feedback to network operators.
