FastEther Channel (FEC) is a Cisco method that bundles 100 Mbps FAST ETHERNET ports into a logical link. Because any redundant paths between two switches mean some ports will be in a blocking state and bandwidth will be reduced, Cisco developed FEC to maximize bandwidth use. Figure 2-4 displays a sw...

LAN Topology

IGMPv1 Solicited Host Membership Report

Figure 19-9 shows operation of the IGMPv1 Solicited Host Membership Report process and the Report Suppression mechanism. Figure 19-9 picks up the example from Figure 19-8, in which router R1 had sent an IGMPv1 Query. Figure 19-9 IGMPV1 Solicited Host Membership Report and Report Suppression Proce...
