OSPF network size for unique area

Sat Apr 06, 2013 10:39 am

Hi all.
I need to configure a network having 300 router 1100AH connected by wireless bridge.
It is sufficient to make a single ospf area or is necessary to break in more than one area?

Thanks

If your talking about 300 routes then that is no issue at all. I have nearly 3000 routes in my area 0. If your talking about 300 routers then you'll want to use areas for sure. I have about 50 routers in one area.

I haven't yet began using more then just an area 0 and ospf has been absolutely solid and fast for well over a year. I know that I'll be quickly approaching the limits and I am beginning to plan for some route summarization and area creation.
