This intermediate OSPF Configuration training prepares learners 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 their 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.
Managing and configuring OSPF routers is more than an essential skill for a network administrator, it's also a test requirement for most industry certifications. If you have any doubt or hesitation around OSPF, getting comfort and mastery with the protocol is as easy as taking this OSPF Configuration training.
For anyone who manages their OSPF training, this Cisco training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.

OSPF is supported by pretty much all business-grade routers, and this course covers the basics and details in equal parts.
Experienced network administrators. Just like some drivers go years without ever really learning how to parallel park, it's not unheard of for network administrators with several years of experience to have never really learned OSPF.
