    IP Routing Operations Overview

    Routers keep track of next-hop information that enables a data packet to reach its destination through the network. A router that does not have a direct physical connection to the destination checks its routing table and forwards packets to another next-hop router that is closer to that destination. This process continues until the packet reaches its final destination.
