In this paper, the intention has to create a network configuration that is similar for all routing protocols RIP, OSPF, and EIGRP by which we want to analysis the performance of these protocols using Cisco Packet Tracer and OPNET simulator. We use various protocols for forwarding the packets in a network topology. For successful delivery of the packets from the source node to the accurate destination node, the routers maintain a routing table. The amount of network information stored by a

We will evaluate the performance of EIGRP, OSPF, and RIP based on of network convergence, Ethernet delay, security, and bandwidth requirement, etc. We will observe that the EIGRP routing protocol has the maximum link utilization followed by OSPF, and RIP routing protocols.
