IEEE Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) is a layer-2 protocol which ensures a loop free topology in Metro Ethernet networks. It is based on Minimum Spanning Tree solution that involves determining the links which can join all the nodes of a network together such that the sum of the costs of the chosen links is minimized. In STP, all customers need to use the same(More)
The Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) is an approved standard that provides a loop-free active topology in Ethernet networks. The main idea in the STP is reducing the topology of a network to a tree topology by blocking the redundant ports. The lack of any traffic engineering mechanism for load balancing in the STP results in uneven traffic distribution and(More)
