Thinking about switching from RIP to a contemporary protocol. OSPF\nseems to be the darling of the industry, but in many ways EIGRP seems a\nfine competitor, IF your shop is all Cisco routers. I note the\nfollowing advantages to EIGRP.\n\n1 - Route summarization at bit level, and summarize at any router\n2 - True loop-free environment via DUAL (OSPF gets close, but can loop)\n3 - Quieter than OSPF on stable network. OSP must send link state\ndatabase every 30 minutes\n4 - Although EIGRP can't be configured into areas, traffic can be\nbounded via autonomous system numbers\n5 - Unequal multi-path routing\n6 - Easier upgrade from IGRP since metrics are similar\n\nDo you agree / disagree? Thanx!
