UDLD (Unidirectional Link Detection) is a protocol to help prevent forwarding loops in switched networks. A fiber cable is build from two separate fibers (transmit and receive), where one of the two fiber could fail, which would result in a switch port not able to receive or send traffic. This scenario could result in some … Read More
