Understanding MSTP

Just in case you haven't noticed it yet: Petr Lapukhov wrote a great (and very long) article describing MSTP. It covers everything, from the basics to multi-region design and interoperability issues. Highly recommended reading.


  1. Great tip, thanks! Working on an big switching project at university right now, this will be very helpful =)

  2. Ivan, thanks for referring to my blos post! :) I hope another one is coming next weekend, as this is that are the only time I can work on them. Normally takes a whole day to write a large blog post, not including the research phase as some topic are documented pretty poorly ;)
