Abstract
This technology case study focuses on Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). The Spanning Tree Protocol is a layer2 protocol that ensures a loop free topology for any LAN network. The basic function of STP is to prevent loops in the network. Spanning Tree Protocol is standardized as IEEE 802.1D. Spanning tree is created within a Layer 2 network of connected switches, leaves only one active path between two network devices. Spanning tree has evolutions and extensions such as; Per VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (PVST), Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Multi Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP).
