Spanning Tree Protocol: RSTP

Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol was created to decrease the convergence time of normal STP.  The entire STP protocol was updated to now converge in as little as 1 second or less in properly designed networks as opposed to the 30+second transitioning with normal 802.1D STP….RSTP is referenced in the new IEEE 802.1w standard.
