Routing is a relevant issue for maintaining good performance and successfully operating in a network. Routing Protocols allow routers to dynamically advertise and learn routes, determine which routes are available and which are the most efficient routes to a destination. In any IP network, routing protocols provide the intelligence that takes a collection of physical links and transforms them into a network that enables packets to travel from one host to another. In this paper the authors present performance evaluation for the combination of conventional model of "RIP" and "OSPF" routing protocols for network traffic over WAN using OPNET.
