Implementing RIP Routing
             Hello sir, per your request, I have compiled some information regarding the benefits of implementing Routing Information Protocol (RIP) routing to our company’s 3 locations. First, let me expand on what RIP routing is. RIP is a simple and one of the most original interior gateway protocols that specify how routers exchange routing table data. It is supported by a variety of systems. By using RIP, routers will periodically exchange their entire tables to create a more efficient network. The most significant advantage of using RIP is that it is simple to configure and deploy and is also widely used. RIP routing offers increased stability and performance as it can avoid loops and considers the amount of time it takes to get to a node. This ensures that data is sent to its destination in the most efficient manner possible.
RIP routing is intended for small to medium networks that won’t require a large amount of scalability, so it wouldn’t necessarily be the best option for our company’s main headquarters. For our main headquarters, I would instead recommend using Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing as it accommodates scalability and topology changes. As our headquarters building is likely to expand, this form of routing will be superior. However, for our branch office and by using RIP Version 2 in our larger office, RIP routing would be of great help. RIP routing works best for a network environment using around 10-15 routers, so that will be more than enough to suit our needs. I hope this information helps in your decision of choosing the right type of routing for our company and if you have any further questions, I will be more than happy to answer them. Thank you for your time.
