This e-book describes and compares each the IPv4 and IPv6 variations of OSPF and IS-IS. It explains OSPF and IS-IS via grounding the research at the ideas of Link State Routing (LSR). It intentionally separates ideas from applied sciences. Understanding the rules at the back of the applied sciences makes the educational procedure more uncomplicated and extra forged. Moreover, it is helping uncovering the dissimilarities and commonalities of OSPF and IS-IS and exposing their more potent and weaker options. The chapters on ideas give an explanation for the options of LSR protocols and speak about the opposite design choices, independently of applied sciences. The chapters on applied sciences supply a complete description of OSPF and IS-IS with sufficient element for pros that wish to paintings with those applied sciences. The ultimate a part of the e-book describes and discusses a big set of experiments with Cisco routers designed for instance the quite a lot of options of OSPF and IS-IS. In specific, the experiments associated with the synchronization mechanisms don’t seem to be generally discovered within the literature.
