Re: what is MSTP ? where can we use MSTP?

The web is full of documentation of MSTP.

The advantage is, that you don't have a STP-Instance for every single VLAN - you can create one ore more instances and map your VLANs to the instance(s).

Your switchs don't have to process BPDUs for every single VLAN - only for the instance(s).

Where can you use it?

Well, you have to find out if your switches support MSTP (IEEE 802.1s).

It's compatible to the older versions (.1d/ .1w), but you don't have the benefits in this case.
