Abstract: OSPF is an ideal dynamic routing update protocol to implement in the data center to maximize application availability. It is relatively simple to design and implement ** IF ** you understand, first, the basic architecture of OSPF, and second, if you understand how to code for OSPF in the relevant platform.

This session provides a tutorial of the basic concepts and considerations that need to be understood when considering an OSPF implementation. It also illustrates the architecture presented here by providing a basic coding example for implementing OSPF in OMPRoute, the strategic routing daemon of z/OS. The session condenses the content that was formerly presented in the IP Network Design Considerations presentation at previous SHAREs, S3914, "An OSPF Tutorial." It also adds some basic coding examples from S3915, "OSPF Configuration & Design in z/OS CS."
A second session, S3930, "OMPRoute: Hints and Tips," provides advanced information for people who have attended this architectural session or who are already somewhat familiar with OSPF and its implementation in z/OS. This session combines and condenses the content that was formerly presented in the following two IP Network Design Considerations presentations at SHARE: S3915, OSPF Configuration & Design in z/OS CS; and S3933: OSPF Diagnosis and Best Practices in z/OS, with emphasis on newer and more advanced material.
