Avialabiliity of stable internet link in institution of learning has become a thing of concern in developing nations like Nigeria. Exchange Point Network approach were used in this study in designing an Inter- Campus Wide Area Network-Based for Optimal Routing. The internetwork system connected five (5) campuses in Imo State Nigeria which includes Federal University of Technology Owerri, Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Imo state Polytechnic Umugawo. Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education and Imo State University Owerri. They institutions have challages ranges from the cost of internet subscription, maitainance of network facilites, electricity challenges amongst others. This work makes use of the internet exchange point (IXP) technology to design and simulate a typical exchangepoint network for tertiary institution in Imo state Nigeria and to establish the best routing protocols. Five institutions where considered and their networks modeled. Three routing protocols RIP, EIGRP, and OSPF where considered during the simulation and it was established that RIP provided a convergence time that is within 3 and 4 seconds, with slightly varied spikes of not up to 10 seconds. OSPF and EIGRP also tries to maintain a time of between 3 and 4 seconds but is plagued with so much spikes of up 20 seconds for EIGRP and 17 seconds for OSPF.
