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.
