Reply To: Multicast traffic recovery times with RSTP?

Hi David,

Good question, I’m not sure. Are you having dropout issues? RSTP (rapid spanning tree protocol) is a Cisco implementation, so if your are connecting up into layer 3 Cisco switches that has STP enabled then it is recommended that you set your Stratix for Rapid.

Assuming that your IO is on the NAT’ed (private side) of your managed switch, I don’t anticipate packet loss as an issue on the public side of things unless you are transmitting multicast traffic over your plant-wide network? Probably doesn’t answer your question but…
