IBGP supports businesses that have global potential and that are pursuing innovative opportunities, which positively impacts economic development.
The BGP engine can maintain the iBGP sessions of each router in the AS system.
Unfortunately, PEA cannot arbitrarily perform this operation since as-path prepending cannot be applied to iBGP peers (BGP routers that are in the same AS as the deploying AS), otherwise the iBGP routers would discard the received routes for the local AS number has already appeared in the as-path attributes.
Routing within an AS is handled by an Interior Gateway Protocol (an IGP such as OSPF or IS-IS, or in many cases, especially backbones, Interior BGP, or IBGP), but this routing information is not visible outside the AS.
