Difference between Routable and Non-routable Protocols
1. Routable Protocol :
A Routable protocol is a network protocol which carry data from one network and it go through the router to succeed in another network and be delivered to a computer in that remote network.
2. Non-Routable Protocol :
A non-routable protocol’s data cannot be passed through a router. This is mainly due to lack of capability of this protocol.
Differences between Routable and Non-Routable Protocol :
|S.No.||Routable Protocol||Non-Routable protocol|
|1.||The protocols that allow the forwarding of data from one network to another network are called as routable protocols.||The protocols that doesn’t allow the forwarding of data from one network to another network are called as non-routable protocols.|
|2.||The data packets from one network to another network are transferred using routers.||Non-Routable protocols cannot be used to route the data over the network using router.|
|3.||It contains a network address as well as a device address.||It contains only a device address and not a network address.|
|4.||It is used to build large networks.||It is designed to work on small and local networks.|
|5.||A routable protocol’s data can be passed through a router.||A non-routable protocol’s data cannot be passed through a router.|
|6||Routable protocols work with a router.||Non-Routable protocols are designed to work on small and cannot be used with a router.|
|7||They are complex.||They are less complex than routable protocols.|
|8||All the routable protocols can be limited to the different network.||All the Non routable protocols are limited to the same network.|
|9||Examples is Internet Protocol (IP). Internet Protocol has two versions IPv4 and IPv6.||Internet Protocol (IP). Internet Protocol has two versions IPv4 and IPv6.|
