Abstract—Certain network routing protocols behave in different ways in different scenarios. It is difficult to choose amongst them a suitable protocol for our implementation. Also certain protocols are susceptible to terms like flooding which can be advantageous and disadvantageous for different situations. There is also a possibility of network bandwidth consumption by the underlying network architecture such as flooding caused by major protocols, moreover learning specific protocols for their performances, manipulation, implementation consumes a lot of time and resources and could be problematic for a network designer to understand different routing algorithms and using large and complex hardware to simplify the task can be hazardous. This paper describes an alternate strategy that could be followed for a complex network. It includes a combination of advantageous protocols regarding functionality in the complex scenarios. Using this implementation technique we would also be able to minimize the flooding caused by certain protocols, thereby, providing network stability, scalability and removal of work load on single entities.
