FRRouting Architecture and Features

In this webinar, we will discuss the FRRouting project, an IP routing protocol suite for Linux and Unix platforms which includes protocol daemons for BGP, IS-IS, LDP, OSPF, PIM, and RIP.

We'll do a deep dive into the FRRouting community, its goals and where it is going, explore the current architecture, and examine the changes currently being implemented.

We'll talk about the community's philosophy on improving the user experience and how this has led to changes that directly benefit operators, new features implemented into FRRouting over the last couple of years, and features planned for the future. Finally, we’ll discuss some of the challenges of using and deploying FRRouting.
