Routing protocols are used to distribute routing information across routers on a network. When each Router or Layer 3 device knowing about the networks connected to other Router, then each one can determine the best path to take to delivery your traffic. Some examples of Routed protocols are – RIP,OSPF,EIGRP and BGP.
A Routed protocol is a protocol by which data can be routed. In case of Routed protocols we require an addressing scheme and subnetting. Addressing scheme will be used to determine the network to which a host belongs and to identifying that host on that particular network. Important to share that Routed protocols are routed by Routing protocols to gather routing information for networks. Some examples of routed protocols are IP, AppleTalk, and IPX.
Below table shares the difference between both Routing Protocols and Routed protocols –
