End vs Intermediate Systems: 2 Components of an IS-IS Network
A Junos IS-IS network is a single AS or autonomous system in network architecture. This IS-IS network, also known as a routing domain is designed with components known as End Systems and Intermediate Systems.
End Systems and Intermediate Systems are both designed to support the transmission of data packets within an Autonomous System. These two components within an IS-IS network do vary in their functionality, where End Systems are inter-network components that send and receive packets and intermediate Systems send and receive data packets but also relay data packets on to other Autonomous Systems.
The benefit of IS-IS systems is that they are built on the design principle of shortest-path-first traversal algorithm within an IS-IS system. These optimized environments, as well as the unified software approach inherent in the Juniper ecosystem, makes this network protocol and network configuration intuitive, resilient and scalable to meet the expectations of today's enterprise organization.
