Later adapted to carry IP prefixes in addition to CLNP. (known as Integrated or Dual IS-IS) as described in. RFC ▫ Predominantly used in ISP environment .

Intermediate System to Intermediate System is a routing protocol designed to move information (IP), the Network Layer protocol of the global Internet.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The result is that an IS-IS router is only ever a part of a single area. International Isiis for Standardization.
The logical view is that OSPF creates something of a spider web or star topology of many areas dfc attached directly to Area Zero and IS-IS by contrast creates a logical topology of a backbone of Level 2 routers with branches of Level 1—2 and Level 1 routers forming the individual areas.
This map indicates the subnets which each IS-IS router can reach, and the lowest-cost shortest path to a subnet is used to forward traffic. The complete IS-IS routing protocol.
Supported Standards for IS-IS
IS-IS is a link-state routing protocolisks by reliably flooding link state information throughout a network of routers. ISO standards by standard number. Level 1—2 routers exchange information with both levels and are used to connect the inter area routers with the intra area routers.
IS-IS routers are designated as being: Intermediate System to Intermediate System IS-ISalso written ISIS is a routing protocol designed to move information efficiently within a computer networka group of physically connected computers or similar devices. Retrieved May 24, IS-IS is an interior gateway protocoldesigned for use within an administrative isos or network.
IS-IS has been called “the de facto standard for large service provider network backbones. However IS-IS is easier to expand: This page was last edited on 28 Novemberat ksis Views Read Edit View history.
RFC – Use of OSI IS-IS for routing in TCP/IP and dual environments
All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from February Pages using RFC magic links. In addition isie that, IS-IS is less “chatty” and can scale to support larger networks. Retrieved from ” https: It accomplishes this by determining the best route for data through a packet-switched network. This article is about a computer network protocol.
However, the basic concepts are similar. This permits SPB to support large Layer 2 topologies, with fast convergence, and improved use of the rfcc topology.
IS-IS is neutral regarding the type of network addresses for which it can route. Each IS-IS router independently builds a database of the network’s topology, aggregating the flooded network information.
Routing information is exchanged between Level 1 routers and other Level 1 routers of the same area, and Level 2 routers can only form relationships and exchange information with other Level 2 routers. Packets datagrams are then forwarded, based on the computed ideal path, through the network to the destination.
As a result, they are conceptually similar. Both support variable length subnet maskscan use multicast to discover neighboring routers using hello packetsand can support authentication of routing updates.
Level 1 intra-area ; Level 2 inter area ; or Level 1—2 both. For topics with similar names, see Isis disambiguation. OSPF has a larger set of extensions and optional features specified in the protocol isix.
