Solution overview

ISIS is a Linkstate Database protocol that relies on the Dykstra Algorithm to calculate the shortest path across the network. Every ISIS router advertises LSAs (Link State Advertisements) propagated throughout the network. These LSAs enable an ISIS router to carry Traffic Engineering attributes when combined with Segment Routing and provide Fast Reroute capabilities in conjunction with SR. This lab does not explore Segment Routing, but this section will familiarize the user with the ISIS database.
