Tom Edsall, Norman Finn: Interswitch link mechanism for connecting high-performance network switches. Cisco Systems, Cesari and McKenna, April 21, 1998: US05742604 (332 worldwide citation)

An encapsulation mechanism efficiently transports packets between ports of different switches in a network on the basis of, inter alia, virtual local area network (VLAN) associations among those ports. The switches are preferably interconnected by a novel interswitch link (ISL) mechanism that append ...

Michael Fine, Silvano Gai, Keith McCloghrie: Shared spanning tree protocol. Cisco Technology, Cesari and McKenna, February 13, 2001: US06188694 (178 worldwide citation)

A shared spanning tree protocol (SSTP) creates a plurality of spanning trees (i.e., loop-free paths) which are shared among one or more virtual local area network (VLAN) designations for data transmission within a computer network. Each shared spanning tree includes and is defined by a primary VLAN ...
