|Addressing and Routing Protocols in an Existing Network
Cisco FabricPath brings the benefits of routing protocols to Layer 2 network Ethernet environments. What are advantages of using Cisco FabricPath technology?
Cisco FabricPath provides MAC address scalability with conversational learning.
Loop mitigation is provided by the TTL field in the frame.
Cisco FabricPath technology is supported in all Cisco platforms and can replace legacy Ethernet in all campus networks.
Cisco FabricPath relies on OSPF to support Layer 2 forwarding between switches, which allows load balancing between redundant paths.
Cisco FabricPath is IETF-standard and is not used with Cisco products.
