network protocol EIGRP

Tutorial of 5 common Network Protocols – IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, ISIS, BGP

Generally, routing protocols is used to learn of available routes that exist on the enterprise network, build routing tables and make routing decisions. The most common routing protocols include RIP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP. Now, let’s explain these networking protocols one by one in order to make it clear. 1. Interior Gateway Routing

Tutorial of Wireless Standards: IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n and new 802.11ac

Full overview: The 802.11 standard establishes and defines the mode of channeling the unlicensed radio frequency bands in WLANs. The 2.4 GHz band is broken down into 11 channels for North America and 13 channels for Europe. These channels have a center frequency separation of only 5 MHz and an overall channel bandwidth (or frequency

Cisco EIGRP Routing Protocol Got New Over the Top Feature

Preface: The EIGRP routing protocol just got more interesting with the addition of Cisco’s Over the Top feature. Here’s how it works plus its pros and cons. Cisco Systems has been hoisting the EIGRP (Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol- with all the hoopla surrounding software-defined networking, overlays and network virtualization) flag up high of late.

How OSPF Works—Tutorial on Types of OSPF

How OSPF Works? Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), as its name implies, is designed to calculate the shortest path to any destination within an OSPF autonomous system (AS) for IP enables OSPF routers to dynamically exchange routing information with each other over complex IP internetworks. Routers can add or remove routes automatically as networks are
