This paper aims to investigate different routing protocols and compares network protocols, including IGRP, RIP, BGP, etc. on key metrics and identified predominant routing protocols. In order to implement the comparison of different routing protocols for smart green systems (RPSGSs), a network has been deployed with a Cisco packet tracer. Furthermore, the commands related to respective routing protocols are selected and used in CLI mode to configure the network. Cisco packet tracer is used since it provides a user-friendly interface on which users can drag and drop many devices to connect together to perform the configuration. The comparative analysis results suggest that EIGRP is a suitable routing protocol for the network that uses Cisco devices and OSPF is the most efficient routing protocol that can be used to transfer the packet from source to destination. RPSGSs allow datagrams to travel in the shortest path throughout the network.
