OSPF

OSPF

(Open Shortest Path First) A routing protocol that determines the best path for routing IP traffic over a TCP/IP network based on distance between nodes and several quality parameters. OSPF is an interior gateway protocol (IGP), which is designed to work within an autonomous system. It is also a link state protocol that provides less router to router update traffic than the RIP protocol (distance vector protocol) that it was designed to replace. See RIP and routing protocol.

El tiempo que se tenga para implementar una solucion u otra, debido a que la implementacion de BGP es mas compleja pues es necesaria la implementacion de la TE para este protocolo, mientras que OSPF ya cuenta con esta adicion, lo que hace que OSPF sea mas facil de implementar a nivel de tiempo.
The second attack allows the flooding of what are known as Disguised LSAs, whereby a victim router would accept spoofed LSAs which it believed were generated by another router within the OSPF domain.
With A* algorithm all routers in one topology area should share all of the network information, like in OSPF or IS-IS that use SPF algorithm.
To establish verification and validation of the designed tool, the network simulator ns-2 is selected to compare with DEVS-Suite OSPF implementation.
There are some major differences between OSPF and RIP.
But with these satellite links, being flooded with OSPF LSAs clogs the pipes quickly, diminishing already limited bandwidth availability.

It includes support for Layer 3 functionality such as QoS, VLAN, NAT, DHCP and PPPoE, as well as OSPF and BGP self-healing routing protocols.
Load testing was conducted with advanced security and networking services enabled with up to 30,000 dynamic OSPF routes and 350,000 BGP routes.
MPLS services were then established over this network and verified end-to-end, using OSPF, LDP and RSVP-TE.
