Distance Vector, Link-State, and Advanced Distance Vector Routing Protocols
When a network is using a distance vector routing protocol, all the routers periodically send their routing tables (or a portion of their tables) to only their neighboring routers. The routers then use the received information to determine whether any changes need to be made to their own routing table (for example, if a better way to a specific network is now available). This process repeats periodically.
In contrast, when a network is using a link-state routing protocol, each of the routers sends the state of its own interfaces (its links) to all other routers (or to all routers in a part of the network, known as an area) only when there ...
