Routers have enhanced the way network devices communicate with each other in today’s modern age. This comparative analysis aims to determine the effectiveness of different routing algorithm with convergence time being the key performance indicator by simulating a fairly large network with Riverbed Modeler academic edition. It was concluded that the router information protocol, RIP which implements the direct vector algorithm is the performing and slowest for the simulated relatively fairly large network.
