Routing Information Protocol (RIP) RIP stands for Routing Information Protocol in which distance vector routing protocol is used for data/packet transmission. In Routing Information protocol (RIP), the maximum number of Hop is 15, because it prevents routing loops from source to destination. Mechanism like split horizon, route poisoning and holdown are used to prevent from incorrect or wrong routing information. Sally Floyd and Van Jacobson [1994] suggest that, without slight randomization of the timer, the timers are synchronized overtime [6]. Compared to other routing protocol, RIP (Routing Information Protocol) is poor and limit size i.e. small network. The main advantage of using RIP is it uses the UDP (User Datagram Protocol) and reserved port is 520 [10].
Enhanced Interior Gateway Protocol (EIGRP) EIGRP stands for Enhanced Interior Gateway Protocol which allows router to share information to the neighboring routers which are within the same area. Instead of sending the entire information to the neighboring router, the information which is needed are shared which reduces the workload and amount of data needs to be transmitted. EIGRP (Enhanced Interior Gateway Protocol) designed by CISCO system which can be used only in CISCO routers, but in 2013 it became open source, so it can be used in other routers [5] –[7]. Neighbor table and Topology table are maintained by the EIGRP (Enhanced Interior Gateway Protocol) [10].
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) OSPF stands for Open Shortest Path First which uses link-state routing algorithm. Using the link state information which is available in routers, it constructs the topology in which the topology determines the routing table for routing decisions [7]. It supports both variable-length subnet masking and classless inter-domain routing addressing models. Since it uses Dijkstra’s algorithm, it computes the shortest path tree for each route. The main advantages of the OSPF (Open Shortest Path first) is that it handles the error detection by itself and it uses multicast addressing for routing in a broadcast domain [8].
Intermediate-System to Intermediate - System (IS- IS) IS-IS stands for Intermediate-system to Intermediate - system which uses link-state routing algorithm for high speed data transmission. IS-IS (Intermediate-system to Intermediate system) uses Dijkstra’s algorithm in which independent database built by each IS-IS router for computing the best path for transmission in a network. It is standardized by ISO, but later IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) standardized as the Internet Standard in RFC 1142 [3], [6], [10].
Border Gateway Protocol – (BGP)
is a standardized exterior gateway protocol designed to exchange routing and reachability information among autonomous systems (AS) on the Internet. The protocol is often classified as a path vector protocol but is sometimes also classed as a distance-vector routing protocol. The Border Gateway Protocol makes routing decisions based on paths, network policies, or rule-sets configured by a network administrator and is involved in making core routing decisions.
BGP may be used for routing within an autonomous system. In this application it is referred to as Interior Border Gateway Protocol, Internal BGP, or iBGP. In contrast, the Internet application of the protocol may be referred to as Exterior Border Gateway Protocol, External BGP, or EBGP.
Most enterprises will usually need at least two of the protocols listed. The Cloud Connectiv team can help deisgn, implement and/or managed your routing solution.

Managed Router Keeps Your Network Moving

We help you avoid network problems like delays, network slowdowns, unauthorized access, denial of access to authorized users, and configuration errors that are often traced to the router. Windstream Managed Router determines the best and most efficient paths to move your data to its destination so you spend more time working, not waiting.
Routing Protocols In computer networks, the routing protocol specifies how routers communicate to select the routes for information or data transfer for that, the routing algorithm is more important [7]. First, the routing protocol informs or shares the information with their associative neighbors and then throughout the network, in which topology is determined [5] – [10]. Different types of routing protocols are as follows, OSPF & IS-IS-> Interior gateway routing using link state routing protocol

Sustaining Your Infrastructure

With these considerations in mind, some organizations start to look to cloud solutions rather than colocation. However, cloud does not provide organizations with a fully auditable system and the ability to have full control over their own infrastructure. Colocation often enables businesses to avoid spending money on storage bills in the cloud as it is often cheaper to store information on their own servers.

From the periodic necessary replacement of UPS batteries, to the maintenance and testing of UPS systems, the hidden costs of sustaining your infrastructure to optimal levels can be surprising. As part of a standard colocation solution, organizations instantly benefit from high level security with ISO 27001 accredited processes, onsite security teams and infrastructure.

Additionally, data centers have the time, resources and impetus to continually invest in and research green technologies. This means that businesses can reduce their carbon footprint at their office locations and benefit from continual efficiency saving research. Companies that move their servers from in-house server rooms typically save 90 percent on their own carbon emissions.

Location, Location, Location

Choosing a colocation provider away from a city or data center hub with optimal connectivity options – both to the capital, Europe and further afield – means having the advantages of all central data centers with the added benefits of having attractive power capabilities and the security of being away from centrally targeted terrorist activity. Out-of-town colocation providers allow businesses to take full advantage of the capital’s infrastructure without the premium costs associated with it.

A colocation solution provides companies with a variety of opportunities, with exceptional SLAs and having data secured off-site, providing organizations with added levels of risk management and the chance to invest in better equipment and state-of-the-art servers. This can enable IT teams the possibility to explore options such as virtualization and condense the amount of racks and servers required.
Colocation providers are able to meet business requirements at a lower cost than if the service was kept in-house. Data centers and colocation providers have the ability to have businesses up and running within hours, as well as provide the flexibility to grow alongside your organization. Colocation space, power, bandwidth and connection speeds can all be increased where required to ensure that all sizes of colocation clients can be catered to.

1 Scalability
Did your computing needs shoot up overnight? Or did they drop drastically during your slow season? Instead of having to hire — or fire — new staff or purchase more equipment to handle it yourself, you can just make a call to your colocation provider and scale your service up or down as needed.

2 Connectivity
Colocation providers keep your servers in climate-controlled data centers, with high bandwidth speeds, and excellent redundancy for network connections. You won’t have to pay the costs to purchase and maintain this kind of IT infrastructure in your own offices, and your internal IT staff can focus on other business operations.

3 Security
Quality colocation providers house your servers in secure data centers, with security measures that include biometric scanners, closed circuit cameras, on-site security, coded access, alarm systems, and more. And with colocation, you don’t have to hire or purchase any of these security measures yourself — it’s all included in your service plan.

4 Stability
If you have to move offices, or are hit with a power outage, or suffer a natural disaster, you won’t have to worry about your data or services going down. A colocation provider will have multiple backup generators and contingencies in place to ensure that there is never an interruption in service, for you, or for your customers.

5 Predictability
Not only does using a colocation provider often save money, but it also turns unpredictable capital outlays into predictable monthly expenses.  You only pay for your own equipment, not a whole datacenter.  Your company will be able to budget for IT needs and allocate existing resources more efficiently.
