What is RSTP?



RSTP is Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol. This protocol shortens the time required to reconfigure an OSI Layer 2 network in order to locate a new 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.
