1) How can I check if the OSPF design of my network is as per standards?
2) Our network has a hub and spoke topology,
The Primary DC is connected over 2Mbpsx4=8Mbps link to the MPLS-VPN cloud
The Primay DC is also connected with a 45 Mbps link to the DR-DC
Routing protocol used is OSPF,
Area0(DC, DC-DR, HubA to HubI, HQ and BO)
Area1(all remote branches connected directly to the MPLS-VPN)
Area2-Area10(remote branches connected to the Hub locations via P2P links)
The Hub locations (HubA-HubI)are connected to the Primary DC via 256Kbps/512Kbps links to the MPLS VPN Cloud.
There are some remote branches connected to the Hubs via point to point 128Kbps leased lines Area A to Area I(as per the Hub location), the rest of the remote branches are connected directly to the MPLS-VPN cloud on 128Kbps links. Area 1.
3) The OSPF network type used on the MPLS-VPN is point to point, How do we decide on the network type that needs to be used?
4) What should I do to baseline the network and make necessary changes where possible.
4) Applications used
Multicast, Http, Client-Server, Email, Antivirus
