The next section continues the discussions by looking at specific commonalities and differences between IS-IS and OSPF. The most obvious place to continue is to consider the similarities. However, before that, take a quick look at terminologies associated with each protocol. As previously indicated, these protocols originated in different standard bodies, IS-IS in ISO (now the ITU) and OSPF in the IETF, and therefore, each is associated largely with different terminologies. Table 7-1 lists the terminology associated with each protocol and attempts to march them with equivalents in other protocol.
