my customer is using hub and spoke frame relay network of 35 sites. his host router is configured for ospf and using point to multipoint instead of point to point. Just wondering what are the advantages of converting into eigrp and point to point over this existing network.
I have a customer with similar sized network, but out of the 35-40 sites, about 8 of them are in a partial mesh. The rest are heiarchical, with two PVCs to the company's two data centers. We are deploying OSPF from IGRP. When considering whether to use EIGRP or OSPF, we went with OSPF for the reasons of (1) Non-proprietary protocol and (2) scalability.
As a matter of practicality, both EIGRP and OSPF would handle WANs several times the size of yours and mine. I talked with an architect of a much larger global WAN who uses EIGRP (200+ locations) and is happy with it. Seems the only issue would be if he would want the flexibility to introduce other (*choke*) non-Cisco routers to the mix. If he is happy with OSPF, I'd be hard pressed to find a strong reason to move. Same answer if he were running EIGRP and considering going to OSPF.
I would consider point-to-point a real issue to have him think through. Seems he would benefit from leaving point-to-multipoint and going to point-to-point.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
