The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the standard interdomain routing protocol in the Internet. Inside an Autonomous System (AS), the interdomain routes are often distributed by using BGP Route Reflectors. We show that by adding intelligence to the route reflectors, it is possible to provide useful services in large IP networks. As examples, we first show how a versatile route reflectores can help an AS to better react to the failure of session BGP links. Our second example showns the benefits of using versatile route reflectors to inter-AS BGP/MPLS VPNs.
