Does the BGP protocol provide solution for a default route redundancy system ?

Hello,

I've tested the command "ip sla". I've tracked objects to redirect a trafic either in a default route or another. But I'm wondering if another solution exists. A solution that use a BGP command or something else like that.

FAI

Router BGP

|                            WAN
6509 ----------------------------------- 6509

The 6509 has a default route to the BGP router. The BGP router has a default route to the FAI. If the route to the FAI is down, the trafic has to be redirected through the WAN link to another Internet connexion.

If the router BGP see that its route to the FAI is down, can he provides a "new" route for the trafic to be redirected through the WAN link ?
Or, another solution, BGP says to EIGRP : "My route is down, please redirect the traffic through the WAN". But in this case, does EIGRP provides a tools to do that ?

Thanks for your answers !
