Flat OSPF network, or single area OSPF networks are real. In fact most of the OSPF network today deployed, is flat OSPF networks. But how many routers can be placed safely in an OSPF area ? Any number from the real world OSPF deployment ? I will share in this post.
One of the advantages of EIGRP Feasible Successor is that it speeds up the EIGRP. In fact, if there is a Feasible Successor in the EIGRP network, such network converges faster than OSPF or IS-IS.
Finally, informational EIGRP RFC 7868 has been published.It is not anymore Cisco’s EIGRP, it is an open standard. Without a most critical feature of EIGRP,can we really say that? Why Cisco doesn’t share the most important feature which can help in large scale EIGRP design although industry has been asking from them for a long …
IS-IS Design – Using IS-IS with MPLS require some important design considerations. IS-IS as a scalable link state routing protocol has been used in the Service Provider networks for decades. In fact, eight of the largest nine Service Providers use IS-IS routing protocol on their network as of today.
IS-IS Interview Questions – IS-IS is a link state routing protocol. Commonly used in Service Provider networks.
OSPF and IS-IS for MPLS TE- You need OSPF or IS-IS to distribute link information such as reserved, unreserved and used bandwidth, metric, link colouring information.These informations are used by CSPT ( Constraint based shortest path first ) algorithm.
What makes for a successful protocol ? Which protocol is successful and why ? Have you ever been asked these questions ? As an engineer you cannot say I believe Protocol X is successful or Protocol Y is not.
OSPF Prefix Suppression helps to company to use 200 routers in their network without any problem. You can think that, some companies use more than 200 routers in their OSPF network, why this post is special? You will understand why in 10 minutes.
IS-IS Overload Bit – Why IS-IS Overload bit is used ? What are the use cases ? In this post, I will explain the Overload bit which is an important feature of IS-IS routing protocol.
OSPF Design Challenge – OSPF and MPLS is most commonly used two technologies in an MPLS VPN environment. In this post I will share a mini design scenario with you and ask couple questions about the fictitious company architecture.
