1. Design a plan to integrate the different routing protocols into a new network design for Genome4U’s lab.
The topology represents the network of the research lab. The different cisco switches represent the different vlans that can be configured for the different project teams in the lab. Router-EIGRP routers are the internal routers of the research lab network. Router EIGRP, OSPF and Router EIGRP, RIP are the routers that are at the lab fund raising interface and lab biology lab interface . File servers will be storing the files of volunteer’s data such as network attached storage.
This figure represents an overview of the internetwork routing
Router-EIGRP, RIP and takes care of route redistribution between the EIGRP network and the RIP network . Likewise, router OSPF, RIP redistributes routes between biology lab and fundraising office. Redistribution between EIGRP and OSPF is required by the peripheral router of Fund raising and research lab.
2. What information will you redistribute between routing protocols?
When we have a network where multiple routing protocols are present, we go through a process of route redistribution. The different segments of network learned routes based on the protocol that is configured on them. Route redistribution helps spread this knowledge in a way that is understood by other segments too. We have to redistribute route leaned by EIGRP to RIP in a way that it is understood to RIP and vice versa. In this case, we use default-metric or define a metric specifically for each redistribution. 3. Identify the problems you expect to encounter (with different metrics, security, etc.) when you redistribute. The different routing protocols have different
