IPv6

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), is the successor to IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) and is designed to address the limitations of IPv4, particularly the exhaustion of available IP addresses. IPv6 is a network layer protocol that serves as the foundation for the Internet and many private networks. It introduces several key changes and improvements …

IPv4

Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), is a widely used network layer protocol that forms the foundation of the Internet and most local area networks (LANs). It is part of the Internet Protocol suite (commonly known as TCP/IP) and is responsible for the addressing and routing of data packets so that they can be sent across …

GRE

Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE), is a tunneling protocol used in computer networks to encapsulate a wide variety of network layer protocols into point-to-point connections. It creates a virtual point-to-point link between two devices, allowing data to be transmitted securely across a network, even when different network protocols are being used on either end. Key characteristics …

IS-IS

Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) is a link-state routing protocol used in computer networks to determine the best paths for data packet forwarding within a single autonomous system (AS). Similar to OSPF (Open Shortest Path First), IS-IS is designed for interior gateway routing and is commonly used within large and complex networks, including Internet …

Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP)

Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) is a type of routing protocol used to exchange routing information between different autonomous systems (ASes) in a network. Unlike Interior Gateway Protocols (IGPs), which focus on routing within a single AS, EGP is designed to facilitate routing between separate administrative domains. The primary purpose of EGP is to enable routers …

Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP)

Interior Gateway Protocols (IGPs) are a type of routing protocol used within a single autonomous system (AS) in a computer network. An autonomous system is a collection of IP networks and routers under a single administrative domain. IGPs are responsible for determining the best paths for routing data packets within the boundaries of the same …

BGP

BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) is a standardized routing protocol used in computer networks to exchange routing and reachability information between autonomous systems (ASes). An autonomous system is a collection of IP networks and routers under a single administrative entity. BGP plays a crucial role in the functioning of the internet, as it helps determine the …
