Re: Routing loop avoidance in Link State

Link-state protocols like OSPF use reliable flooding mechanisms to ensure that all routers are acting on the basis of the same information. Loops occur when routers act on the basis of inaccurate or old information. That is what link-state protocols avoid. All routers in a link-state database have the same view of the network.
