How Many Devices Can the STP Network Support?

Postby hone » Mon Jul 11, 2016 10:23 pm

The recommended value of STP network radius is 7 and the maximum value is 20. The STP network supports a maximum of hundreds of switches.

However, as the number of Layer 2 network devices increases, the bandwidth usage decreases and the network maintainability becomes poorer.

When there is a large number of network devices, you are advised to design a hierarchical network structure to properly partition the STP network into logical regions and hierarchies for better maintainability and manageability.
