 - Migration from OSPF to ISIS

OSPF and ISIS are the two most commonly used IGPs in SP networks today. The presentation covers their history, and looks at some of the similarities and the differences between the two. It also looks at some of the reasons why more ISPs are adopting ISIS of late. The presentation then concludes with a short description/case study on how to migrate from OSPF to ISIS.

Philip Smith has been working in the Internet industry since the early 90s. He recently joined APNIC, the Asia Pacific Network Information Center, as Director of Learning and Development.
