Before analyzing the details of each individual routing protocol, general information about IP routing will be presented first. Network designers should know the key characteristics of different routing protocols because they will be in a position to recommend specific routing protocols for different projects.
The first decision to make is whether you should use static or dynamic routing. Static routing involves manually defining routes on devices and dynamic routing involves the use of a dedicated routing protocol that will build the routing table.
Even though static routes may not seem necessary in modern networks, there are situations in . . .
