    An ABR (area border router) connects (links) more than one area. Usually an ABR is used to connect non-backbone areas to the backbone. If OSPF virtual links are used an ABR will also be used to connect the area using the virtual link to another non-backbone area. Border Routers use internal OSPF routing table entries to an ABR or ASBR (Autonomous System Boundary Router). Border routers maintain an LSDB for each area supported. They also participate in the backbone.
