- Open Shortest Path First, or OSPF, dynamically controls routing within a network.
Border Gateway Protocol, or BGP, dynamically controls routing traffic between networks, or Autonomous Systems. Routers setup BGP peering sessions with each other and share information about what networks connect to them directly, as well as what routes they learn from other peers. This means that if two BGP peers lose their session, the network knows this and can send traffic on an alternate path to its destination. Much of the internet uses BGP to ensure traffic flows quickly and efficiently to its destination rather than relying on human intervention to manage routes.
