Cisco ACI uses the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) as its southbound protocol. BGP is a core protocol of the Internet that is responsible for routing traffic between different autonomous systems (AS). ACI uses BGP to exchange routing and reachability information with other devices in the network, such as routers, switches, and firewalls. This information is used to build the ACI fabric and to provide connectivity between the devices in the fabric.
