Spanning Tree CST , PVST+ , RSTP and MST

In this video Orhan Ergun explains all the spanning tree modes and compare them from the design point of view. If you need scalability use MST , if you want fast convergence and flexibility use RSTP and so on. If you want me to share more spanning tree videos or explain specific technology please comment below.
