Home LAN/MAN STP What is SYS-ID-EXT parameter in Spanning-tree?

The bridge ID priority is combined with the system ID extension to create the bridge ID priority for the VLAN.


Bridge ID Priotirty = Priotirty(16bit) + Mac Address(48bit)

= Priority[first 4bit +12bit for VLAN] + Mac address(48bit)

so, first 4bit represents 4096, 8192, 12288, .... 32768... and next 12 bit represent VLAN numbers. (due to only 12bit, available VLAN will be 4096)

 

ex) Bridge ID Priority # below is 49162, b/c 49152 + 10 (VLAN #)

Access1#show spanning-tree vlan 10
