Abstract

routing protocols are the heart and soul of internetworking, routers uses routing protocols as their algorithms to decide the best path from a given source to a destination. That being said it is very critical to choose the right routing protocol for the topology as many parameters exists such as throughput, delay and QoS. Network convergence on the other hand is the state of set of routers having the same topological awareness about the network. In this paper I will discuss the network convergence activity and time if the given routing protocols (EIGRP, OSPF, and RIP) are being simulated. Also I will discuss the convergence time and how implementing each protocol affects our simulation. Keywords-component; routing, convergence, EIGRP, OSPF I.

This paper discussed routing protocols performance based on the quantitative metrics such as Convergence Time, Jitter, and End-to-End delay, also they proved that EIGRP is more CPU intensive than OSPF and hence uses a lot of
