About this paper
Spanning-Tree Protocol (STP) is designed to prevent problems related to bridging loops.
It solves the issue by blocking redundant paths and allowing only a single active path. STP works by choosing a root switch then selecting a loop free path from the root switch to every other switch. To do that, spanning tree must elect a single root bridge, one root port for each non-root switch, and a single designated port for each network segment.
