Without some practical study, you might drive yourself crazy wondering how an e-mail message gets from Brussels to Hong Kong via a series of routers that, by themselves, have no specific knowledge of either city. Uyless Black, best known for his defining works on voice over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, has written IP Routing Protocols to explain the various route-finding algorithms. The book stays one step removed from the details of specific routing hardware and software platforms, instead explaining routing protocols as they're defined in standards documents. IP Routing Protocols, therefore, comes across as a bit academic at times, but active router technicians will find the approach clarifies their understanding of procedures used in their work.
After introducing the engineering problems routing protocols are meant to solve, the book describes five (or six, if you want to separate IGRP and EIGRP) such protocols. It explains how each one came to exist and lists its relative strengths and weaknesses, plus how each protocol calculates the best-available routes, advertises these routes to neighbors, and deals with problems.
IP Routing Protocols's dense style rewards readers willing to study the words carefully and draw meaning from the utilitarian conceptual drawings. The book will also pay the greatest dividends to readers who have used the covered routing protocols in practice, and can connect the high-level explanations to real-life observed phenomena. --David Wall
Topics covered: The most popular routing protocols used on Internet Protocol (IP) networks and internetworks, including Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and Private Network-Network Interface (PNNI). The book also briefly discusses two proprietary Cisco protocols, Inter-Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) and Enhanced IGRP (EIGRP).From the Inside Flap:
This book is one in a series of books called, "Emerging Communications Technologies." As the name of the book implies, the focus is on how routes are discovered and used in the Internet.
The subject matter of this book is vast and my approach is to provide a system view of the topic. In consonance with the intent of this series, this general survey also has considerable detail but not to the level of detail needed to design a routing protocol, or to configure a bridge or router. For that, I leave you to your project team and the various specifications that establish the standards for routing operations.
This book is considered to be at an intermediate-to-advanced level. As such, it assumes the reader has a background in data communications.
I hope you find this book a valuable addition to your library. Use of Appendices
The subject of internetworking and route discovery is built on many concepts, and several supporting IEEE, ISO, and Internet protocols and standards. For those readers that are familiar with these subjects, I have not encumbered the main body of the book with a description of these systems. From previous experience, I also know that a substantial number of my readers will not have full knowledge of some (perhaps all) of these supporting and underlying operations. I also know that some of the readers are well-versed in these underlying, supporting protocols.
I have provided several tutorials on these subjects and have included them in the appendices to this book. I suggest you take a look at the appendices before you start reading the book, and then study those topics in which you need more information. On occasion, I will refer to an appendix to alert you to some required background information for a subject under discussion. If appropriate, I will refer you directly to a figure or a table to enable you to do a quick check to determine if you should divert to the specific material in the appendix before proceeding further.
With this approach, I hope meet the needs of readers with various levels of experience and knowledge.
