Cisco is opening up its EIGRP as open standard

Wed Feb 13, 2013 4:07 pm

I have heard the good news from Cisco, that they already announce that EIGRP routing protocol that previously become Cisco proprietary will become open standard.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collate ... 26299.html

Its mean that RouterOS can put this routing protocol on the next release :D

I would like to see this implemented as well.

I certainly don't want to use it internally, but we do have customers that have asked for it as a PE-CE protocol for L3VPN.

I was very excited about this until I read that they won't be releasing advanced features like stub areas. It will still be much better than redistributing, and i'm very excited about the prospect of MikroTik implementing it in the future.

Good article about it here:

Hmmm so what Cisco are doing is setting a challenge for the world's reverse-engineers? To see if the EIGRP could be fully open-sourced by not looking at Cisco's source code but just ripped spec, compiled code and the packets on the wire?

Well if an open-source project starts existing, which contains 'undocumented' features and claims at least some compatibility, is it going to be legal-enough?
