Administrative Domain:

A group of routers that share the same routing protocol within one organization. Also known as an autonomous system.

Area:

A group of routers that share the same area ID. Each router in the area has the same topology table. Each router in the area is an internal router. The area is defined on an interface basis in the configuration of OSPF.

A logical set of network segments and their attached devices. Areas are usually connected to other areas by means of routers, making up a single autonomous system.

 Routers in an area maintain detailed routing information about the area’s internal composition. The routers also maintain routing information that allows them to reach other areas.
