When you use a dedicated provider gateway, you can configure additional routing services, such as route advertisement and border gateway protocol (BGP) configuration.

If you are using a provider gateway with legacy IP blocks, to provide a fully routed network topology in a virtual data center, your system administrator can dedicate a provider gateway to a specific NSX edge gateway.

If you are using a dedicated provider gateway with IP spaces, your system administrator configures static routes and BGP on the provider gateway, and you can manage BGP settings for your NSX edge gateway that is backed by the dedicated provider gateway. You configure route advertisement on the organization VDC network level.
