OSPF - Open Shortest Path First
Configure an OSPF server on your network in a simple way
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is one of the most commonly used Internal Gateway Protocols (IGPs) for internal routing protocols. Border® Allows you to set up an OSPF server on your network on the same server to work together with BGP or there is the possibility of setting up an OSPF independently.
OSPF caches the fastest path between source and destination, and then sends packets of data to a route that has the least amount of traffic. Therefore, the shorter here means the time that the data packets take to go from point A to point B.
OSPF works for routing within the domain that operates within a single autonomous system (AS). The state of the link represents the basic information of a router and its immediate connections, and then the OSPF protocol gathers the information and calculates the shortest path between two points.
Some of the most important reasons for implementing the OSPF protocol are:
- Reduces overall routing costs for businesses.
- Enables network redundancy.
- Optimizing Local Area Network (LAN) Performance
BordeR® unites the good performance of our already consolidated BrbOS operating system in the market, which is based on FreeBSD, an operating system aimed at high level servers. The whole system is written entirely in C language, which allows you to work at Kernel level, focusing on delivering lean code with optimum performance, speed and stability, so your edge is always active and performing well.
In addition to the performance, BordeR® has an easy and intuitive WEB interface to manage your server, which can be accessed from any browser on the internal network, or make an external redirection configuration, to monitor and configure the server remotely.
You can also count with real-time charts, reports and information to analyze and identify various events or problems you may have. Have route information, peers, and various data that can be helpful to identify and troubleshoot issues.
