Understand OSPF, in-depth and the best way possible: through complete working implementations!

  • Power-packed CD contains exclusive, complete OSPF implementations, written in C++, with ports to Linux and Windows.
  • Discover never-before published optimization techniques, from the creator of OSPF!
  • For everyone interested in the practical aspects of Internet routing -- ideal for Cisco CCIE and other network certification candidates.
OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) is one of the most challenging routing protocols to understand-and one of the most important. In OSPF Complete Implementation, John Moy , OSPF's inventor and primary developer, walks networking professionals through a comprehensive OSPF implementation in C++, step-by-step. A perfect companion to Moy's OSPF: Anatomy of an Internet Routing Protocol (0-201-63472-4), this authoritative guide demonstrates how every part of the standard can be implemented, enabling readers to explore all of the protocol's "nooks and crannies", and to discover never-before-published optimization techniques. The highly valuable CD-ROM is serious software; it contains the complete implementation, as well as ports that can transform Linux or Windows systems into full-fledged OSPF routers. Moy explains OSPF's functional specifications, software architecture, and key building blocks. An ideal resource for everyone interested in practical Internet routing: netadmins, protocol designers, protocol software developers, and others involved in designing, developing, or managing TCP/IP networks using OSPF.

John T. Moy is developer and main inventor of the official OSPF protocol specification.
