  • Tree-based routing Ethernet (TRE) is a recent Ethernet architecture that enables shortcut links to improve performance compared to spanning tree protocols. However, TRE can only use shortcuts that arrive directly at
    bridges located in the branch of the destination. TRE+ extends the
    topology knowledge of a bridge to 2 hops away, thus unveiling new
    shortcuts to the destination branch. Simulations show a major
    performance improvement of TRE+ compared to TRE, with results close to
    shortest paths in some topologies.
