This lab is identical to the OSPFv2 basic areas lab but leverages the OSPFv3 routing protocol.
The OSPF (Open Shortest Path Protocol) is one of the most popular routing protocols for IP Networks. It uses a link state routing (LSR) algorithm which is performed by every switch router mode in the network. OSPF leverages areas and it is these area concepts that form the basis of the LAB which introduces the 'Backbone area', 'Regular Areas' including Stub areas and not so stubby areas.
This lab should be considered as a basic OSPFv3 lab as an introduction to the configuration and operation of OSPF on Aruba CX switches.
At the end of this workshop you will be able to understand and configure ospfv3 areas, understand basic ospf metric calculations of routes, simple route redistributions and the use of stub areas and NSSAs (Not so stubby areas) with OSPFv3.
