Comparative Analysis of Protocol RIP, OSPF, RIGRP and IGRP for Service Video Conferencing, E-mail, FTP, HTTP

In this study we present a simulation based comparative performance analysis between RIP, OSPF, EIGRP and IGRP for real time applications by using OPNET.

The evaluation is done based on different aspects such as packet delay variation, packet end-to-end delay as well as video traffic, download response time, upload response time in E-mail, FTP, page response time and object response time in HTTP, convergence and queuing delay. We are trying to find out which protocol suits best for the network we have proposed.
