Introduction to OSPF

UofSC and NSF

The development of this lab series was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation Award 1829698 “CyberTraining CIP: Cyberinfrastructure Expertise on High-throughput Networks for Big Science Data Transfers” at the University of South Carolina (UofSC). The labs provide hands-on training in the technologies used to build and configure high-speed networks.

The Introduction to OSPF training provides practical skills in network simulation and routing protocols, specifically focusing on Open Shortest Path First (OSPF). The labs are supported using the Introduction to OSPF Pod.
