Link-state, uses Dijkstra algorithm
Level 1: intra-area (can only form relationships with other Level 1 routers).
Level 2: inter-area (can only form relationships with other Level 2 routers).
Level 1-2: both.
Level 1 ↔ Level 1
Level 2 ↔ Level 2
Level 1 ↔ Level 1-2 ↔ Level 2
Area borders are between routers (i.e. on the link) in contrast to OSPF where the area border is within an ABR.
