OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) is the most popular routing protocol. By deploying this protocol with a Cisco router, messages can get to their destination faster. This book shows the network manager how to maximize the use of OSPF with Cisco router technology.

Cisco Router OSPF: Design & Implementation Guide is a blueprint for both understanding and using the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol, as well as other prominent routing protocols. According to the author, an understanding of the OSPF is crucial to successfully passing the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) exam. A former professor at Wichita State University and a survivor of the CCIE program himself, William Parkhurst imbues the text with an approachable and pragmatic tone. He amply stocks the book with clear explanations of various networking principles and practice exercises. And as any good teacher would, he even supplies the answers in the book's appendix (all the while imploring his reader-students to practice, practice, practice).
Though Parkhurst's ultimate goal is to provide a working knowledge of how to operate and configure the OSPF protocol on Cisco routers, he takes his time in getting there, providing several chapters worth of useful, educational diversion. The book begins with an overview of routing and bridging basics, moves into an explanation of Ethernet and its role in the networking world, and delves into other protocols. In particular, he covers the Routing Information Protocol (RIP), the Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), and OSPF. All of these chapters also contextually detail the configuration commands, and Parkhurst includes a section on how to ensure harmonious interaction between these protocols. A must-have for anyone interested in the CCIE program and in Information Protocol (IP) routing, Cisco Router OSPF: Design and Implementation Guide effectively boils the mass of available data to its bare essence, an absolute delight in these days of information overload. --Sarah Roberts-WittFrom the Back Cover:
"Dr. Parkhurst brings his extraordinary teaching skills to this book, building the foundations of internetworking protocol expertise using concepts and fundamentals."--Imran Qureshi, CCIE Program Manager, CCIE #1030. Be prepared for the CCIE exam--or hone your Cisco expertise--with this best-of-class guide to network design and implementation for the OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) protocol. Both comprehensive and practical, Cisco Router OSPF doesn't leave you guessing. It picks up where Cisco documentation leaves off and explains everything from the underlying mechanisms of network data transmission to configuration issues and OSPF troubleshooting. Inside this guide, CCIE and former CCIE Preparation Lab Director, Dr. William Parkhurst, has put all the help you need to: understand network routing at both theoretical and practical levels; configure and design a network for OSPF, Version 2; handle IP addressing, subnetting, VLSM, and IP routing; avoid common design errors; migrate a network form RIP to OSPF; use OSPF with other protocols; implement OSPF over Frame Relay; monitor and debut the OSPF network. Cisco, far and away the leading provider of router-based technology, and OSPF, hold the keys to much of the Internetetworked future. Here's the step-by-step guide to configuration, design, and implementation that lets network engineers and technicians unlock that door.
