Rick Burts, CCIE, Sr. Consultant at Chesapeake NetCraftsmen, discussed "Selecting a Routing Protocal" at the Cisco University in March 2008. This seminar looks at what routing protocol is the "best" based on several factors:
- Converges faster?
- Uses less resources?
- Fits a particular topology better?
- Easier to troubleshoot?
- Easier to configure?
- Scales to a larger number of routers, routes, or neighbors?
- More flexible?
- Degrades more gracefully?
Based on these factors and your environment, Rick discusses whether you should change your routing protocol.
