Routing protocols and criteria

Routing protocols operate at the Network Layer (Layer 3) of the TCP/IP and OSI protocol stacks to connect various types of networks to form one logical network. Many criteria influence the choice of which routing protocols to use. Please list criteria you feel are most important to the decision of which protocols to use.

A business continuity plan usually contains alternate site specifications. Please detail the differences between cold sites, warm sites, and hot sites.

There are several main criteria that would qualify as the most important when deciding which protocol to use. One of the most important points would be "how quickly the protocol adapts to changes in the network" (Ballew,2012). This is an important point because ideally, the time between a change that is made in the network and the reestablishment of the system's routing tables to a correct and consistent form needs to have the smallest window of time possible, so that the activities go unnoticed by the system users.
The second main criteria that would be the most important are the resource consumption used. If ...
