 Types of OSPF Routers

  • Internal  router  -  within  an  area
  • Area  border  router 
    • attached  to  multiple  areas
    • runs  a  copy  of  SPF  for  each  attached  area
    • relays  topological  info  on  attached  areas  to  backbone

 

  • Backbone  router  -  includes  area  border  routers
  • AS  boundary  routers

There are basically 2 types of routers.

1. Static router: In this type the system administrator is defining the shortest path in the network.

In static routers, system administrator is giving the shortest path by giving some commands.

Static router is not so efficient than dynamic routing. static routing have some limitations and used in the relatively

Smaller range of the network.

2. Dynamic router: In the dynamic routing the router can define the shortest path by itself between the nodes.

Dynamic routing is the clever type of routing and normally used in lot of places in the world while routing. In this type the router is programmed in such a way that router itself is taking the shortest path and system administrator does not have to do any thing. It saves time and cost.
