Course Description

Spanning-tree Bridge Assurance is one of those STP features that help to prevent bridging loops in your network. When bridge assurance is enabled, BPDUs are sent on all interfaces of your switch, including blocked interfaces like the alternate or backup port. When an interface doesn't receive a BPDU

Spanning-tree is used on switches to create a loop-free L2 topology. In these lessons you will learn the basics of spanning-tree and the different versions: PVST, RPVST and MST.

Course Highlights

In this course you will learn:

  • How spanning-tree builds a loop-free topology.
  • The difference between PVST, RPVST and MST.
  • How to protect the spanning-tree topology.
  • And many other topics…
