Types of Routing protocol?

Updated on September 29, 2008

Types of Routing protocol

 

Types of Routing Protocol:

RIP V1

RIP V2

IGRP

EIGRP

OSPF

BGP

IS-IS

FRAME RELAy.

Detail explaination of all thes protocols except BGP, IS-IS and FRAME RELAY can be found in the hub below.

http://hubpages.com/hub/What-you-mean-by-RIP-v1

Apart from these we have BGP, IS-IS and FRAME-RELAY to discuss here.

BGP:

The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is an interautonomous system routing protocol. An autonomous system is a network or group of networks under a common administration and with common routing policies. BGP is used to exchange routing information for the Internet and is the protocol used between Internet service providers (ISP). Customer networks, such as universities and corporations, usually employ an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) such as RIP or OSPF for the exchange of routing information within their networks. Customers connect to ISPs, and ISPs use BGP to exchange customer and ISP routes. When BGP is used between autonomous systems (AS), the protocol is referred to as External BGP (EBGP). If a service provider is using BGP to exchange routes within an AS, then the protocol is referred to as Interior BGP (IBGP)

BGP Path Selection

BGP could possibly receive multiple advertisements for the same route from multiple sources. BGP selects only one path as the best path. When the path is selected, BGP puts the selected path in the IP routing table and propagates the path to its neighbors. BGP uses the following criteria, in the order presented, to select a path for a destination:

  • If the path specifies a next hop that is inaccessible, drop the update.

  • Prefer the path with the largest weight.

  • If the weights are the same, prefer the path with the largest local preference.

  • If the local preferences are the same, prefer the path that was originated by BGP running on this router.

  • If no route was originated, prefer the route that has the shortest AS_path.

  • If all paths have the same AS_path length, prefer the path with the lowest origin type (where IGP is lower than EGP, and EGP is lower than incomplete).

  • If the origin codes are the same, prefer the path with the lowest MED attribute.

  • If the paths have the same MED, prefer the external path over the internal path.

  • If the paths are still the same, prefer the path through the closest IGP neighbor.

  • Prefer the path with the lowest IP address, as specified by the BGP router ID.

Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System

(IS-IS) is an OSI link-state hierarchical routing protocol that floods the network with link-state information to build a complete, consistent picture of network topology. To simplify router design and operation, IS-IS distinguishes between Level 1 and Level 2 ISs. Level 1 ISs communicate with other Level 1 ISs in the same area. Level 2 ISs route between Level 1 areas and form an intradomain routing backbone. Hierarchical routing simplifies backbone design because Level 1 ISs need to know only how to get to the nearest Level 2 IS. The backbone routing protocol also can change without impacting the intra-area routing protocol.

      very interesting. very useful. very intellectual feedback. one question though....this has nothing to do with above topic. Every time I "attempt" to encrypt my system partion hard drive space w/ AES/Twofish...It freezes my pc? What gives?! It is really beginning to bother myself.
