Performance Analysis of HSRP in Provisioning Layer-3 Gateway Redundancy for Corporate Networks


The network functionaries incorporate and core networks aim to provide 99.999% reliability to their networks. The most preferred way to achieve this is to provide dynamic routing to the network. If the router gateway is disrupted by port failure, network administrator should manually configure the route in which packets are being forwarded. By using Hot Stand Routing Protocol (HSRP), it simultaneously adapts new route, which provides redundancy to the network with reduced packet loss. In this paper, our aim is to calculate the difference in number of packets lost when router with gateway is disrupted in the network by combining HSRP with Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol. By using this combined technique, we can reduce the packet loss to maximum extent thereby increasing the reliability. The simulation results provide best route when HSRP is combined with OSPF than the existing technique without HSRP.
