As defined in the IEEE 802.1 standard, a bridge protocol that is essentially a combination of source routing protocol (SRP) and spanning tree protocol (STP). The SRT bridge can connect LANs or LAN segments by either method, using source routing with hosts that support it and transparent spanning tree bridging (STP) otherwise. See also bridge, LAN, protocol, SRP, and STP.
(1) (Source Routing Transparent) An IEEE-standard that provides bridging between Ethernet and Token Ring networks. Ethernet LANs use transparent bridging, and Token Ring LANs use source route bridging (SRB). The SRT method sends Ethernet packets via transparent bridging and Token Ring packets via SRB.
