BGP tutorial: How the routing protocol works
In BGP terminology, an independent routing domain -- which almost always means an ISP network -- is called an autonomous system. BGP is always used as the routing protocol of choice between different ISPs, which is known as external BGP. Large ISPs also use BGP as the core routing protocol within their own networks, which is called internal BGP.
