Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on network and configuration Paper must be at least 3250 words. Please, no plagiarized work! The protocol that is given for the completion of the task is Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) version 2. It falls into the category of the link-state routing protocol. So we shall start with some information on what is link-state.
Link-state is a mechanism that follows the condition and connection type of every connected link and develops a metric calculation that is based on some factors that also included the factors that were set by the network engineers. The functionality of the link-state protocols is that it knows the status of the link, whether it is up or down and what is its bandwidth and calculates a cost to use that path. As we know that every router run routing protocols to find out the best path to the destination, one can consider the link-states as representing the status of the interfaces on the router. (Davis, 2002) The functionality of a link-state protocol is that it may take a path with more number of hops, but uses the medium that has higher bandwidth than all the other paths even with the lowest number of hops. Due to the features of media type awareness and other factors, these protocols consume more processing power and memory.
Link-state influences all the routers that structure up the complete topology of the whole internetwork (or of the position where the router is presently located), this means that every router contains the same information of the topology. Due to this whenever a change occurs it is broadcasted to the entire topology. .This method of routing is known as the shortest path first. Protocols that work on the link-state mechanism are OSPF, EGP, and BGP mechanism.
VLANs are configured in a LAN environment to divide broadcast domains. The communication between the two hosts in two different VLAN requires routing of traffic. This routing of traffic is known as inter-VLAN routing.
The design of this network implements the connection between the networks of all headquarters located in the UK.
