A network consists of a larger number of the communication devices like Routers, Repeaters, Hubs and Switches. A router works like a traffic light between the networks. Without routers there would be no Internet.

Today, IP is the main protocol in use on the Internet, as it is a routed protocol. A routing protocol specifies how routers communicate with one another. The routing protocol also specifies how routers in a network share information with each other and report changes. Some of the common routing protocols include IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP.

After completion of this Basics of Routers programme at IDC Technologies , students will get a clear view on Basics of switches, Hubs and Bridges, routing basic concepts, hierarchical routing and about some advanced routing concepts.
