Cisco OSPF Tutorial: How to Design Networks using OSPF FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

What will you learn in this Cisco network design training?

You'll learn how to plan out a large Cisco network that deploys without problems in your topology or addressing schema and which avoids scaling problems. This course explains when you might want to deploy the advanced routing protocol Open Shortest Path First in your Cisco networks, and how to do it right when you do.

Who should take this network design with OSPF course?

This Cisco networking course is ideal for enterprise network engineers and advanced network administrators. Junior administrators might find the advanced topology information on this course challenging, but if you want to eventually design highly scalable networks, you'll need to understand OSPF and how to design Cisco networks that make use of the protocol.

Is this training in Cisco network design associated with any certifications?

Although the information on this course will be helpful for a number of IT certifications, it's not specifically designed as certification prep. Rather than walk through all the content on one of Cisco's exams, you'll practice implementing OSPF into network designs. Those skills and that knowledge is helpful for a number of advanced Cisco certs.

What certification should you consider after taking this course in designing Cisco networks with OSPF in mind?

The CCNA is the foundation for Cisco's more advanced, professional certs. So if you haven't earned the CCNA yet, that's the first certification to consider after taking this OSPF network design course. Following that, knowing how to configure and use OSPF is featured on CCNP Enterprise, CCNP Service Provider, and CCNP Data Center.

Why should you take this OSPF network design for Cisco training?

OSPF is the key to building a robust and scalable routing protocol, but it comes with hidden challenges you have to take into account. Learn what the right amount of routing information per area is, how many routers you need per area, and how to balance every concern to make a highly scalable Cisco network with OSPF.
