Supported Standards for IS-IS
Intermediate System to Intermediate System IS-ISalso written ISIS is a routing protocol designed to move information efficiently within a computer networka group of physically connected computers or similar devices.
It accomplishes this by determining the best route for data through a packet-switched network.
IS-IS has been called “the de facto standard for large service provider network backbones. IS-IS is an interior gateway protocoldesigned for use within an administrative domain or network.
IS-IS is a link-state routing protocoloperating by reliably flooding link state information throughout a network of routers. Each IS-IS router independently builds a database of the network’s topology, aggregating the flooded network information.

Packets datagrams are then forwarded, based on the computed ideal path, through the network to the destination. As a result, they are conceptually similar. Both support variable length subnet maskscan use multicast to discover neighboring routers using isjs packetsand can support authentication of routing updates. IS-IS is neutral regarding the type of network addresses for which it can route.
This map indicates the subnets which each IS-IS router can reach, and the lowest-cost shortest path to a subnet is used to forward traffic.
IS-IS routers are designated as being: Level 1 intra-area ; Level 2 inter area ; or Level 1—2 both. Routing information is exchanged between Level 1 routers and other Level 1 routers of the same area, and Level 2 routers can only form relationships and exchange information with other Level 2 routers.
Level 1—2 routers exchange information with both levels and are used to connect the inter area routers with the intra area routers.

The result is that an IS-IS router is only ever a part of a single area. The logical view is that OSPF creates something of a spider web or star topology of many areas all attached directly to Area Zero and IS-IS by contrast creates a rrfc topology issi a backbone of Level 2 routers with branches of Level 1—2 and Level 1 routers forming the individual areas.
However, the basic concepts are similar. OSPF has a larger set of extensions and optional features specified in the protocol standards. However IS-IS is easier to expand: In addition to that, IS-IS is less “chatty” and can scale to support larger networks. SPB allows for shortest-path izis in an Ethernet mesh network context utilizing multiple equal cost paths.
This rdc SPB to support large Layer 2 topologies, with fast convergence, and improved use of the mesh topology. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
