A Non-Broadcast Multi-Access (NBMA) network is a network type that allows multiple hosts to connect to the same network; however, an NMBA does not natively support Broadcast and Multicast packets. One of the most commonly implemented NBMA technologies is Frame Relay. The implementation of OSPF on NBMA networks requires a great deal of thought and planning. OSPF can be implemented in three modes on NBMA networks. These modes are:
- Simulated Broadcast Mode
- Point-to-Point Mode
- Point-to-Multipoint Mode
Each mode has its advantages and disadvantages. It is therefore . . .
