Differences between Intradomain and Interdomain Routing

In this section, we shall discuss how Intra-domain Routing is different from Inter-domain Routing. Intra domain is any protocol in which Routing algorithm works only within domains on the other hand Inter domain is any protocol in which Routing algorithm works within and between domains.

Let us see the differences between Intradomain and Interdomain:

S.No Intradomain Routing Interdomain Routing
1. Routing algorithm works only within domains. Routing algorithm works within and between domains.
2. It need to know only about other routers within their domain. It need to know only about other routers within and between their domain.
3. Protocols used in intradomain routing are known as Interior-gateway protocols. Protocols used in interdomain routing are known as Exterior-gateway protocols.
4. In this Routing, routing takes place within an autonomous network. In this Routing, routing takes place between the autonomous networks.
5. Intradomain routing protocols ignores the internet outside the AS(autonomous system). Interdomain routing protocol assumes that the internet contains the collection of interconnected AS(autonomous systems).
6. Some Popular Protocols of this routing are RIP(resource information protocol) and OSPF(open shortest path first). Popular Protocols of this routing is BGP(Border Gateway Protocol) used to connect two or more AS(autonomous system).
