Chapter 10. Fundamentals of the Integrated IS-IS Protocol


This chapter covers the following topics, which you need to understand to pass the CCNP/CCDP/CCIP BSCI exam:

  • Introduction to Integrated IS-IS

  • OSPF and IS-IS compared

  • ISO addressing for Integrated IS-IS

  • Integrated IS-IS hierarchical structure

  • Basic principles of area routing

  • Integrated IS-IS networks and interfaces

  • Network layer protocols used in Integrated IS-IS

The topics in this chapter detail the routing protocol Integrated IS-IS. This chapter assumes knowledge of routing protocols and, in particular, link-state routing protocols. This chapter introduces Integrated IS-IS by explaining the protocol's terminology and fundamental concepts.

Because Integrated IS-IS is similar to the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol, you should read the chapters on OSPF and reinforce the fundamentals of link-state protocols. Differences between Integrated IS-IS and OSPF are clearly outlined within this chapter.
