In this 89-video, intermediate training, CBT Nuggets trainer Keith Barker covers the knowledge network administrators need to manually configure a network of OSPF routers and ensure optimal traffic flow.

Open Shortest Path First, or OSPF, is a fundamental routing protocol. It gets referenced and used frequently by network professionals to make sure that all the servers on your network have a full and complete map of the network that lets them make efficient decisions about where to send traffic as it comes in.
