Configuration Guide - Ethernet Switching

CloudEngine 8800, 7800, 6800, and 5800 V200R003C00

This document describes the configuration of Ethernet services, including configuring MAC address table, link aggregation, VLANs, MUX VLAN, Voice VLAN, VLAN mapping, QinQ, GVRP, VCMP, STP/RSTP/MSTP, VBST, SEP, RRPP, ERPS, LBDT, and Layer 2 protocol transparent transmission.

Application Scenarios for MSTP

Application Scenarios for MSTP

Application of MSTP

Figure 10-17 Networking diagram for a typical MSTP application

MSTP allows packets in different VLANs to be forwarded by using different spanning tree instances, as shown in Figure 10-17. The configurations are as follows:

  • All devices on the network belong to the same MST region.

  • VLAN 10 packets are forwarded within MSTI 1; VLAN 30 packets are forwarded within MSTI 3; VLAN 40 packets are forwarded within MSTI 4; VLAN 20 packets are forwarded within MSTI 0.

In Figure 10-17, S1 and S2 are devices at the aggregation layer; S3 and S4 are devices at the access layer. Traffic from VLAN 10 and VLAN 30 is terminated by aggregation devices, and traffic from VLAN 40 is terminated by access devices. Therefore, S1 and S2 can be configured as the roots of MSTI 1 and MSTI 3, and S3 can be configured as the root of MSTI 4.

Application of MSTP Multi-process

On the network shown in Figure 10-18, the UPEs are connected to each other through Layer 2 links and enabled with MSTP. The rings connected to the UPEs must be independent of each other. The devices on the rings connected to the UPEs support only RSTP, not MSTP.

After MSTP multi-process is enabled, each MSTP process corresponds to a ring connected to the UPE. The spanning tree protocol on each ring calculates a tree independently.
