In addition to IP, Enhanced IGRP (EIGRP) supports two other network-level protocols: AppleTalk and Novell Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX). Each of these has protocol-specific, value-added functionality. IPX Novell EIGRP supports incremental Service Advertisement Protocol (SAP) updates, removes the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) limitation of 15 hop counts, and provides optimal path use. A router running AppleTalk EIGRP supports partial, bounded routing updates and provides load sharing and optimal path use.
The case studies provided here discuss the benefits and considerations involved in integrating EIGRP into the following types of networks:
Novell IPX—. ...
