Our networks rely on STP to prevent loops between switches. In this video, you’ll learn how STP and RSTP can be used to keep the network running and provide redundant links to network destinations.
The foundation of your network is the cabling on which everything runs. In this video, you’ll learn about different cabling types and how UTP, STP, plenum-rated, and coaxial cable is used in our modern networks.
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) is an important standard that provides a mechanism for switched networks to avoid outages due to network loops. In this video, you’ll learn how loops can cause network issues and I’ll demonstrate what happens when Spanning Tree constantly adjusts to avoid network loops.
In which of these instances would you most likely install a run of STP?
Which of these examples would be the best use for a STP cable?
Your copper network connections may be a combination of many different cable types. In this video, you’ll learn about the characteristics of UTP, STP, and coaxial cabling.
Spanning Tree is used on bridged and switched networks to prevent loops. In this video, you’ll learn how STP manages to keep your large switched network loop-free.
If your network isn’t wireless, then you’re using some kind of copper cable or optical fiber. In this video module, you’ll learn about twisted pair cabling, coaxial cable, plenum cable, and optical fiber.
