Q:

What are the purposes of areas in an OSPF network?

Answer

Areas allow the design of a hierarchical network. Routes can be summarized or blocked in an area to reduce the amount of routing information on internal OSPF routers.

Q:

Why is BGP a better choice for Internet routing than the IGPs?

Answer

RIP version 1 and IGRP are classful protocols and do not advertise subnet mask information. RIP version 2 has a limited network diameter of 15 hops. EIGRP, OSPF, and IS-IS use computational intensive algorithms for determining a shortest path. BGP relies on simple techniques for best path selection and loop detection, and can handle the number of network prefixes required for Internet routing.

Q:

What is the first thing that BGP checks to determine if a prefix is accessible?

Answer

BGP checks the NEXT_HOP attribute to determine if the NEXT_HOP is accessible or in the IP routing table.

Q:

What is the purpose of the LOCAL_PREF attribute?

Answer

If a router has more than one route to the same IP prefix, the best path is the one with the highest LOCAL_PREF (assuming the WEIGHT attribute for the routes is equal).
