Updated on 14/nov/16 - Added one Lecture

OSPF is known to be a Not-So-Easy Protocol to Manage and Implement- That's the reason this course has been Introduced. This course is All about Practical Implementation of OSPF Commands and It's features. You would learn why it is so popular and complex.

I have used GNS3 tool to run all of the Labs in OSPF- It's very easy for you to Practice and rehearse all of its Labs.

I have added over 20 lectures in this - Almost covered all of its aspects. Good Thing is I will be adding more videos and lectures so that Students get the complete Benefit out of this.

This course is over 3 hours. It has been structured well so that you will slowly move On towards more complex Labs.

You would find OSPF being used in Most of the Banks and Companies due to its Hierarchical structure and area based approach and which makes it complex protocol.

But It has been made EASY now. Try it and reach out to me for any questions.

Who is the target audience?
  • Network Aspirants , CCNA and CCNP Students should take this course
  • This course is meant for students who are not much familiar with Command Line of OSPF and who are looking for good Hands On/Practice
