RSTP is Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol. This protocol shortens the timers required to reconfigure an OSI Layer 2 network to locate a path after an existing path has failed. Standard STP (Spanning Tree Protocol) can take up to 60 seconds to perform such a recovery. RSTP improves on that recovery time.
