We have a campus designed network that have a core level: 10720 routers on a ring topology, a distribution level: 3750 switches with ip routing, and an access level: 2950,2960,3550 POE and 3560 POE layer 2 switches.

present in a non-backbone area. The V-bit is signaled in Type-1 LSA only
if the router is the endpoint of one or ...
