OSPF defines four types of network, point-to-point network, broadcast network, NBMA network and point-to-multipoint network.
Point-to-point network consists of only two routers which are directly connected.
Broadcast network supports two or more routers, and it has the ability of broadcast.
In the NBMA network, OSPF simulates the operation of a broadcast network, but it needs to manually configure each router's neighbors. NBMA makes the routers form a fully connected network.
Point-to-multipoint network makes the entire non-broadcast network as a set of point-to-point networks. Each router can discover neighbors using the underlying protocol, such as Inverse ARP. Point-to-multipoint mode should be used when it's not able to form fully connected network. Point-to-multipoint network type is not a default network type.
