Join Cisco and gold partner ANS as we present a technical insight into the current and future networking and security landscapes on the 27th February at Cisco, Bedfont Lakes.

 

With a series of presentations and demonstrations on software defined networking within the campus and the datacentre, you’ll learn how important it is to ensure that your architectural approach to networking and security is built on the right fundamentals and strategy.

We will then turn our attention to explore what the future holds with the emergence of agile, NetOps 2.0 and tooling.

This topic is a chance to discuss more about the how to implement the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) on an Ethernet Network. This session will provide you a better understanding about how to implement STP on Ethernet Networks, port sales, convergence timers, STP variants, the best configurations practices, the features that increase STP stability and the optimal type of STP to run on today’s Cisco Catalyst switches. Since STP aims to prevent broadcast storms, unstable MAC tables in switches and multiple duplicates on interface, it is of great importance to understand to learn more about the best practices to implement this protocol.

 

The switch is one of the most important and common devices in a LAN. The Spanning tree Protocol was developed to support redundancy in a Layer 2 Network, while preserving a loop-free logical topology. STP allows a network design to include back uplinks that helps to provide fault tolerance if an active link fails, it provides a single path of communication between each Ethernet segment.

 

Ask question from Monday, February 5th to Friday 16th, February 2018
