About switch meshing

Switch meshing is a load-balancing technology that enhances reliablity and performance in these ways:

  • Provides significantly better bandwidth utilization than either Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) or standard port trunking.

  • Uses redundant links that remain open to carry traffic, removing any single point of failure for disabling the network, and allowing quick responses to individual link failures. This also helps to maximize investments in ports and cabling.
