What is Link State?

Link-state routing protocols are one of the two main classes of routing protocols used in packet switching networks. The link-state protocol is performed by every switching node in the network. Every node creates a map of the connectivity to the network (in the form of a graph) displaying all the nodes that are connected to other nodes. Each node then calculates the next best logical path from it to every possible destination in the network. The collection of these best paths forms the node’s routing table.
