Addressing and Routing Architecture

We begin examining component architectures with the addressing and routing architecture. IP addressing and routing are the cornerstones of a network, upon which much of the performance, network management, and security component architectures are built.

6.1 Objectives

In this chapter you will learn about the architecture for addressing and routing. We discuss some fundamental concepts about addressing and routing for IP networks, and examine various mechanisms to provide flexible and comprehensive addressing within the network, as well as to manipulate routing flows through the network. As with the other component architectures, we discuss possible interactions within this architecture (internal relationships) ...
