Junos OS and the OSPF Routing Protocol

While having a fast network is key to ensuring data is transmitted around a corporation as quickly and smoothly as possible, there's still a need to route traffic between networks. This course will begin your look at dynamic routing protocols.

Description

While having a fast network is key to ensuring data is transmitted around a corporation as quickly and smoothly as possible, having speed doesn't help if you need connectivity to other networks. To do this, you need to route traffic. This course, Junos OS and the OSPF Routing Protocol, along with the other courses in the JNCIS-ENT series, is designed to educate and prepare network engineers for working in and securing enterprise environments. First, you'll explore the different types of dynamic routing protocol. Next, you'll dive into an overview of the shortest path first algorithm, along with discovering the concept of areas. Finally, you'll learn how to configure OSPF on Junos OS based devices. By the end of this course, you'll not only have a better understanding of how OSPF decides what the best path is across the network, but you'll also have a greater awareness of some of the features that make OSPF a scalable yet flexible, dynamic routing protocol.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Martin Brown, and welcome to my course, Junos OS and the OSPF Routing Protocol. I am a network security engineer at a tier one service provider. In this course we move from our previous discussions on static routes into examining dynamic routing protocols, namely the most popular routing protocol in use today, OSPF. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the different types of dynamic routing protocol, and overview of the shortest path first algorithm, the concept of areas, and how to configure OSPF on Junos OS based devices. By the end of this course you'll not only have a better understanding of how OSPF decides the best path across the network, but you'll also have a greater awareness of some of the features that make OSPF a scalable yet flexible dynamic routing protocol. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the basics of configuring Junos OS, the Junos OS configuration hierarchy, the basics of IP addressing, and how routers make routing decisions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about configuring a dynamic routing protocol using Junos OS based devices with the Junos OS and the OSPF Routing Protocol course at Pluralsight.
