RSTP significantly reduces topology reconvening time after a link failure.
RSTP expands the STP port roles by adding the alternate and backup roles.
RSTP port states are blocking, discarding, learning, or forwarding.
RSTP provides a faster transition to the forwarding state on point-to-point links than STP does.
RSTP also uses the STP proposal-agreement sequence.
RSTP uses the same timer-based process as STP on point-to-point links.
It has more than one internee that is connected to the root network segment.
It is running RSTP while the elected root bridge is running 802.1d spanning tree.
It has a higher MAC address than the elected root bridge.
It has a higher bridge ID than the elected root bridge.
The Fa0/11 role confirms that SwitchA is the root bridge for VLAN 20.
VLAN 20 is running the Per VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol.
The MAC address of the root bridge is 0017.596d.1580.
SwitchA is not the root bridge, because not all of the interface roles are designated.
All ports will be in a state of discarding, learning or forwarding.
Thirty VLANs have been configured on this switch.
The bridge priority is lower than the default value for spanning tree.
All interfaces that are shown are on shared media.
All designated ports are in a forwarding state.
The switch must be the root bridge for all VLANs on this switch.
RSTP cannot operate with PVST+.
RSTP defines new port roles.
RSTP defines no new port states.
RSTP is a proprietary implementation of IEEE 802.1D STP.
RSTP is compatible with the original IEEE 802.1D STP.
