Hi Packets Type 1 are OSPF bundle which sent intermittently on all connection points including virtual connections to lay out and keep up with neighbor contiguousness. It is a multicast parcel having a multicast and communicated ability additionally empowering dynamic revelation of adjoining switches. Hi bundles publicizes boundaries on which switches consent to become neighbors. It additionally chooses the Designated Router (DR) and Backup Designated Router (BDR) on multi-access organizations. Highlight point joins don’t need DR or BDR. The figure beneath delineates the welcome parcel:

  • Type-This is eight-digit field Identifies the sort of bundle. It has three sorts: Type 1 demonstrates a Hello bundle. Type 2 demonstrates a DBD bundle and Type 3 parcel show a LSR bundle, Type 4 shows a LSU bundle, and Type 5 a LSAck bundle.
  • Switch ID-This is 32-digit field communicated; in specked decimal documentation used to exceptionally distinguishing the beginning switch.
  • Region ID-Area ID is additionally a 32 bit recorded distinguishes the started region of the parcel.
  • Network Mask-Network cover related with the sending point of interaction

Note:- the over four fields are the piece of OSPF header and the under six fields are the pieces of OSPF hi Field.

Hi Interval-This field characterizes how frequently we send the welcome parcel. Hi span additionally characterizes the recurrence, right away, at which a switch sends Hello parcels. The default Hello span on multi-access networks is 10 seconds. This hi stretch clock should be something very similar on adjoining switches in the event that not, a nearness is absurd.

Switch Priority-This field is utilized in a DR/BDR political race. The default need for all OSPF switches is 1 yet we can likewise physically arrange switch need from 0 to 255. The higher the worth, the switch turns into the DR on the connection.

Dead Interval-This field characterizes how lengthy we should sit tight for hi parcels prior to announcing the neighbor dead and unavailable. Of course, the switch Dead Interval is multiple times the Hello stretch. This clock should be something very similar on adjoining switches any other way, a nearness doesn’t lay out.

Assigned Router (DR)- This is the Router ID of the DR.

Reinforcement Designated Router (BDR)- This field characterizes the Router ID of the BDR.
Rundown of Neighbors-This field recognizes the switch IDs of every single nearby switch.
