A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) in a network is a common approach to allocating IP information dynamically to clients as they shift from one network to another within an enterprise.
OSPF Configuration (Pt. 2) – Misc. Features and Multi-Area Configuration
by PivIT Global on May 6, 2022 11:48:46 AM
OSPF can be implemented by using two different approaches, single-area or multi-area deployment. In a single-area design, all routers are part of the same area and are an appropriate option for small networks. Let’s not forget that in such a scenario many link-state advertisements (LS …
Interior Routing Protocols Comparison: RIP vs EIGRP vs OSPF vs IS-IS
by PivIT Global on May 6, 2022 11:07:18 AM
Using a dynamic routing protocol in a network today is a common routing strategy for providing full network connectivity in enterprise environments. Simultaneously, it has many advantages over static routing and brings many additional benefits, especially in medium to large networks.
OSPF Configuration (Part 1) – The Basics and Single-Area Configuration
by PivIT Global on May 6, 2022 10:43:04 AM
For uninterrupted network connectivity and knowledge of every single part of the network topology, the usage of dynamic routing protocols is an inevitable step. Unless there is a point-to-point or a hub-and-spoke topology where static routing is a proper fit, in any other network type …
