Sometimes, unidirectional links appear in
packets from the other end but the other end cannot. For example, if two switches, Switch A and Switch
B, are connected via a fiber pair, one used for sending packets from A to B and the other for sending
packets from B to A, the link between the two switches is a bidirectional link (two-way link). If one of
these fibers gets broken, the link becomes a unidirectional link (one-way link).
Unidirectional links result in problems such as loops in an STP-enabled network.
There are two types of unidirectional fiber links. One occurs when fibers are cross-connected, and the
other occurs when one end of a fiber is not connected or one fiber of a fiber pair gets broken.

On a unidirectional link, one end can receive
