This standard specifies Cut-Through Forwarding (CTF) bridges based on the IEEE 802.1Q bridge architecture, including protocols, procedures, and managed objects. CTF bridges interconnect individual local area networks (LANs) using different or identical media access control (MAC) methods with and without support for CTF. This standard also details the usage of CTF bridges in bridged networks.
