Computer networks are a system of interconnected computers for sharing digital information by selecting the best routes between any two nodes which based on the routing protocol. There are many types of routing protocols which can be dynamic or static, as well as distance – vector or link – state. In this project, there are three typical types of routing protocol chose to simulate which are Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP). RIP is one of the oldest distances – vector routing protocols and uses `next - hop` as it’s metric. OSPF is a routing protocol for internet protocol networks. OSPF builds a database of routes to its neighbors and using an algorithm to calculate the best possible path. EIGRP is a hybrid between link – state and advanced distance – vector routing protocol that is used on a computer network to help automate routing decisions and configuration. EIGRP is the fastest router convergence among the three protocols. Detailed descriptions of these routing protocols are provided later in this project. We are using Riverbed to simulate RIP, OSPF and EIGRP in order to compare their simulation results and compare performance. We aim to analyze the performance of these three protocols such as their router convergence or convergence duration in order to determine the best routing protocol for a given network topology There have been a large number of static and dynamic routing protocols available but choice of the right protocol for routing is dependent on which routing protocol is best according to various parameters like delay, bandwidth, load, MTU(minimum transmission unit)and packet round trip time and reliability. Through this paper we define and understand the concepts of routing and routing protocol by comparing, analyzing the performance these three protocols such as (RIPv1), (EIGRP) and (OSPF) in computer network system which deal with packet route networks and wired networks and coding for these protocol done in packet tracer and show the result in the chart.
