Estimated reading time: < 1 min

The Bandwidth Allocation Protocol (Cisco BAP) is a Microsoft Windows 2000-supported multi-link remote access protocol that dynamically manages how to distribute bandwidth using the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) for multi-link connections.

The Bandwidth Allocation Protocol is used to add and delete links in a multilink package over PPP, along with its control protocol, the Bandwidth Allocation Control Protocol, and to determine which peer is liable for bandwidth management decisions. The protocol was first developed in 1997 by Craig Richards and Kevin Smith, respectively, of Shiva Corporation and Ascend Communications. It has since been deployed on a variety of routers, like Cisco IOS.
