Protocol-Independent Routing Properties Overview

In Junos OS, routing capabilities and features that are not specific to any particular routing protocol are collectively called protocol-independent routing properties. These features often interact with routing protocols. In many cases, you combine protocol-independent properties and routing policy to achieve a goal. For example, you define a static route using protocol-independent properties, and then, using a routing policy, you can redistribute the static route into a routing protocol, such as BGP, OSPF, or IS-IS.

Protocol-independent routing properties include:

  • Static, aggregate, and generated routes

  • Bidirectional Forwarding Detection on static routes

  • Global preference

  • Martian routes

  • Routing tables and routing information base (RIB) groups
