Routing Fundamentals for Cisco CCNA
The following topics have been covered in this article. Please note that all the technologies discussed in the article may not be relevant to CCNA or CCNP. It is given for overall understanding of the subject matter.
1. Fundamentals of Routing:
There are several different types of routing technologies that are commonly used in networks. Here are a few examples:
1. Static Routing: In static routing, the administrator manually configures the routing table with the necessary information. It is a simple and secure method of routing, but it is not suitable for large networks and does not adapt to changes in the network topology.
2. Distance-Vector Routing: Distance-vector routing protocols, such as Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), use metrics such as hop count to determine the best path to a destination. These protocols periodically exchange information with their neighboring routers and update their routing tables accordingly.
