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, Juniper Networks JNCIS-ENT (JN0-343): Open Shortest Path First, 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.
