I got to know that VTP (VLAN Trunking Protocol) is a Cisco proprietary protocol.

So VTP can be used only on CISCO switches. So if there is a non-Cisco switch in a network, what kind of protocol can be used for Vlan Trunking ?


IEEE 802.1ak defines a protocol called Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol or MVRP in short. Most vendors have implemented this protocol like Juniper or Cisco. A cisco switch can be configured to run this protocol, although there are some restrictions that you have to be aware of.
