This topic is a chance to discuss more about the how to implement the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) on an Ethernet Network. This session will provide you a better understanding about how to implement STP on Ethernet Networks, port sales, convergence timers, STP variants, the best configurations practices, the features that increase STP stability and the optimal type of STP to run on today’s Cisco Catalyst switches. Since STP aims to prevent broadcast storms, unstable MAC tables in switches and multiple duplicates on interface, it is of great importance to understand to learn more about the best practices to implement this protocol.


The switch is one of the most important and common devices in a LAN. The Spanning tree Protocol was developed to support redundancy in a Layer 2 Network, while preserving a loop-free logical topology. STP allows a network design to include back uplinks that helps to provide fault tolerance if an active link fails, it provides a single path of communication between each Ethernet segment.


Ask question from Monday, February 5th to Friday 16th, February 2018
