Difference between EIGRP and OSPF

Computer EngineeringComputer NetworkMCA

EIGRP

EIGRP stands for Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol. It is used to share information between routers lying in same region. It can be easily implemented in small as well as large networks. It is a hybrid protocol and uses distance vector routing and link-state routing protocol.

OSPF

OSPF stands for Open Shortest Path first. It is used on variable-length subnet masking (VLSM) and discontinuous networks. It is a classless routing protocol.

Following are the important difference between EIGRP and OSPF.
