Not sure what you are asking here. Do you mean there are 2 separate connections between 2 switches and one of them is blocked by STP ?

If so, when the forwarding link fails the standby link would begin forwarding. How long it takes is dependant on which STP version you are running. Not sure where the figure of 18 seconds comes from ?
