Paper Abstract

The IEEE 802.1D STP is a kind of layer 2 link management protocol which provides path redundancy while preventing undesirable loops in the network. And it is based on all spanning tree protocols using an algorithm that calculates the best loop-free path through the network. The IEEE 802.1W RSTP provides rapid convergence comparing to 802.1D STP and the IEEE 802.1S MSTP allows frames assigned to different VLANs to follow separate paths, each based on an independent Multiple Spanning Tree Instance, within Multiple Spanning Tree Regions composed of LANs and or MST Bridges offering RSTP feature. These regions and the other Bridges and LANs are connected into one common spanning tree about three types of STPs.
