OSPFv2 is a necessary routing protocol used in IP networks. It stands for Open Shortest Path First Version 2, the most widely used interior gateway protocol (IGP) today. OSPFv2 provides a reliable, scalable, and secure solution for efficiently routing traffic within an autonomous system (AS). The primary purpose of OSPFv2 is to calculate paths between two points in a network based on the shortest path first algorithm. This means that when calculating routes, it will always choose the route with the least cost or hop count from the source to the destination instead of other protocols, such as RIP, which uses only the hop count metric for route calculation.
