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