3 Problems Solved By STP


1. Broadcast Storms: The forwarding of a frame repeatedly on the same links, consuming significant parts of the links' capacities.

2. MAC Table Instability: The continual updating of a switch's MAC address table with incorrect entries, in reaction to looping frames, resulting in frames being sent to wrong location.

3. Multiple Frame Transmission: A side effect of looping frames in which multiple copies of one frame are delivered to the intended host, confusing the host.
