Calculation of AD Values

How the AD values being calculate ?

It can be diff. for diff. protocol and vendors but how can be calculate and how it works ?

The AD value is used when a router must choose between routes learned using different routing protocols
Even protocols have different AD value in cisco
eg we have AD value of 110 in cisco for OSPF but we called route preference in juniper

Thank you for the responce but this is not an answer of my question.

My question is how this AD values fixed ? What’s calculation behind it ?

There is no calculation a vendor can pick any value like Juniper consider 170 and Cisco Consider 20/200. It totally a vendor choice how they want to prioritise the Routing Entries in Routing table.
