*tailed Specification Vhen designing a network, network architects need to consider a lot of parameters. From the network performance, the network usability, the etwork reliability and the network
redundancy to security and disaster recovery. Predicting network performance is an open research area. The erformance of a network can be measured, modelled or simulated. In this assignment you are
invited to investigate the effect that routing protocols ave on network performance. asks:
‘art 1: Literature review on network routing protocols
network requires many protocols collaborating together for delivering information in an efficient, reliable and secure way. Some of the most nportant protocols in networks are the ones used to
select routes between any two nodes of a network, based on different criteria and by enabling ommunication between the routers of the network. Depending on the topology of the network, routers can
communicate via interior gateway protocols or exterior gateway protocols.
lefore building the network models described below, produce a literature review section on the main routing protocols for wired networks, their Jnctionality and operation. You should mainly
concentrate on interior gateway protocols and critically compare the most important ones. Ensure you time high-quality references from journals to support your literature review, using Harvard
Referencing. Some good sources for references are ;oogle Scholar and IEEE Xplore.
