Route summarization results in routing designs that are more scalable, regardless of the routing protocol used (e.g., RIPv2, EIGRP, or OSPF), as it places network addresses into usable blocks, which can be used for multiple purposes; for example:
- NAT blocks
- Blocks used in redistribution
- Blocks for management VLANs
- Blocks for content services
Route summarization can be used in medium-sized to large networks for faster convergence and to better support sensitive traffic and services, such as VoIP and storage. Convergence time is measured based on the time the SPF . . .
