Nowadays, network stability is a very important factor in the business environment. Many companies depend on the fast collaboration between the different departments and a fast reliable network is a must to meet the strict projects deadlines. Any large network uses a routing protocol to route packets between users. Routing protocols can induce instability in the network if the links between them are bandwidth limited or the link quality is poor and packets are lost in transit. In the case of bandwidth limited links, routing protocols can experience problems. If the routing protocol's packets exceed the limitation, they are dropped and the adjacency can be lost resulting in the routes withdrawn. More, the connectivity can be lost between network's endpoints.
