The goal of this guide is to provide guidance for implementing OSPF on the 128T Networking Platform. Introduced in version 3.2.7, the OSPF feature enables a dynamic and flexible integration of SVR in customer networks.
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is an interior gateway protocol (IGP) that is most often used to dynamically manage network routes in large enterprise network. It determines routes dynamically by obtaining information from other routers and advertising routes to other routers by way of Link State Advertisements (LSAs). The information gathered from the LSAs is used to construct a topology map of the network. This topology map is shared across routers in the network and used to populate the IP routing table with available routes.
Learning routes from OSPF simplifies enterprise configuration and integration with Secure Vector Routing.
