Course Description
The Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol is perhaps the most widely used interior gateway protocol (IGP) in large enterprise networks. OSPF is a link-state routing protocol that calls for the sending of link-state advertisements (LSAs) to all other routers within the same hierarchical area. This video course offers 6+ hours of thorough, detailed discussion and examples of the technology, covering authentication, neighbor relationships, network types, area types, metric calculation, metric tuning, route filtering, summarization, virtual links, and more.
