OSPFv3 is one of the most widely used routing protocols in modern networks. It was introduced as an evolution of OSPFv2, which had been around since 1998. OSPFv3 provides many improvements over its predecessor that make it better suited for today’s increasingly complex and dynamic networks. One significant improvement with OSPFv3 is its ability to support IPv6 addressing without needing additional configuration or extra software components. This makes it easier to deploy on existing IPv4 networks and allows them to transition gradually into using IPv6 addresses over time if desired. Additionally, because both versions use the same protocol stack and message formats, there are no compatibility issues when transitioning from… Read More
