Border Gateway Protocol

(BGP) An Exterior Gateway Protocol defined in RFC 1267 and RFC 1268. Its design is based on experience gained with Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP), as defined in STD 18, RFC 904 and EGP usage in the NSFNet backbone, as described in RFCs 1092 and 1093.

Furthermore, a distributed access ISP that runs Border Gateway Protocol routing (BGP4) can redistribute data traffic almost instantaneously if a connection to a backbone fails.
