Understanding OSPF Routing

Open Shortest Path First is a robust link-state interior gateway protocol (IGP). People use OSPF when they discover that RIP just isn’t going to work for their larger network, or when they need very fast convergence. To understand the design needs for areas in OSPF, let’s start by discussing how OSPF works. There’s some terminology  Full Article…


OSPF Open Shortest Path First

OSPF is an interior gateway protocol that routes Internet Protocol (IP) packets solely within a single routing domain (autonomous system). OSPF is a complex link-state routing protocol. Link-state routing protocols generate routing updates only when a change occurs in the network topology.When a link changes state, the device that detected the change creates a link-state  Full Article…
