Section 5.4: Routing


In this section students will learn the basics of using routers to send packets from one network to another. Routing facts that are discussed include:

·         The role of a router

·         The information stored in a routing table:

o   The address of a known network

o   The interface or next hop router used to reach the destination network

o   A cost value (also called a metric) that identifies the desirability of the route to the destination network (using distance, delay, or cost)

o   A timeout value that identifies when the route expires

·          Static routing vs. dynamic routing

·         Managing routing tables

·         Convergence of routing information

Routing protocol characteristics discussed include:

·         Scope

·         Metric

·         Routing update method

·         Classful or classless

Specific routing protocols presented include:

·         Routing Information Protocol (RIP)

·         Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)

·         Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)

·         Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS)

·         Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
