Intradomain routing protocols
Intradomain routing protocols support one of the two planses, control and forwarding, are needed to deliver IP packets over a network. Intradomain routing protocols provide information to the control plane, which determines and chooses the path to a destination based on metrics such as number of hops, delay, and bandwidth. The forwarding process does the actual insertion of the IP packet into a frame and forwards the frame to the next hop.
The major intradomain routing protocols in current use are:
- Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
- Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
- Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS)
- Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
