The Internet, which has had an impact on almost every facet of our lives. It has grown at a rapid pace and devices connecting to in direct proportion, in turn increasing the routing tables. The Location Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) helps to reduce the burden in both enterprise routers and Internet routers without changing the hardware, which could cost more than implementing a new routing protocol. The LISP helps in reducing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routes as well as keeping devices connected to the Internet or network with less downtime. Implementation of the LISP in a simulator helps network engineers learn the upcoming protocol and design, and test the network.
