This course covers all of the details surrounding Spanning-Tree, concentrating on the original 802.1d implementation and contrasting that with Cisco’s PVST+ variant. In this course you’ll learn about such things as; What problem does Spanning-Tree solve? What are Root Bridges, Root Ports, Designated Ports and Blocking ports? How does Spanning-Tree create a loop-free topology? How does PVST allow a network designer to accomplish VLAN Load-Balancing, and much, much more. During the course you’ll also have multiple opportunities to take live “quizzes”, and then the answers to those quizzes will be revealed and explained by the instructor.
