Subject: OSPF Network design


I have a question regarding OSPF design.

I have a customer which has a hub and spoke topology, in the main
site the have 5 routers and every remote site is using 3 routers and
a 1/4 class C addresses. There are 8 remote sites.

They have created for every site an area, so in total 9 areas + an
area 0 makes 10 areas. Is this a typical OSPF design? At this moment
this network is a 100% VoIP network (H.323). In the future they want
also to give Internet access to their customers (dial-up and leased
lines). The remote sites are connected with 1MB links, and some of
them shall be upgraded to 2MB links.

Any ideas? Or does some one have a good reference to a site or a book
that deals with the designing of a (OSPF) network. I have books about
OSPF but they talk all about the protocol, and don't give real world
examples how to design this.
