This course is several hours long and will cover OSPF at great lengths. I will explain the the inner workings of this highly scalable and complexed protocol. Students will get a thorough understanding of OSPF and how we would implement it in a real world environment. We will discuss the following concepts OSPF terminology; process ID’s, LSA, DBD, LDB’s and much more. We will be configuring OSPF in a point-to-point and broadcast type of network and understand the differences between them. Analyze the election process of DR and BDR using loopback addresses, priority numbers or putting in the router id manually. Once you get an understanding of how OSPF works and it’s configurations we will then go into explaining and creating multiple area OSPF and OSPFV3 and analyze them as well. This is a lecture based course using the Touch-IT Technology Smart board, which will make learning very interactive and engaging. Hands on labs will be used to drill down the concepts learned in each lecture using Cisco’s Packet Tracer. My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give the most needed hands on experience! Handouts will be available to facilitate learning and practice. This course will help the student become familiar with OSPF routing using various methods and how to implement them in your environment…but it will also help in preparing for any networking certification or Computer Science Degree; not to mention the fact that for those already in the field, it will further improve routing decisions in their particular networks.

Course Objectives

  • Once you finish my course, you will have a strong grasp of OSPF of its configurations and terminology. The understanding of OSPF routing concepts is an essential element for any Networking and/or IT Professional. This course will prepare the student for any networking certification such as N+, CCNA, MCSE to include any Computer Science Degree.
  • Mastering this knowledge will make the student, Networking and/or IT Professional a much more valuable asset in any IT environment.

Who Is This For?

  • This course is intended for anyone that is preparing for a network certification or Computer Science Degree. However, it does go beyond that, it is also intended for those Networking and/or IT Professionals that are already in the field and need a better understanding of OSPF.
