3) Redundancy
4) Fault tolerance
5) No filters or other overhead
6) Limited, consistent diameter

Distribution Layer
1) Implement policies
2) Security
3) QoS
4) Redundancy and load balancing
5) Summarization
6) Policy routing

10) Define multicast and broadcast domains

Access Layer
1) High availability
2) Port security, ARP inspection, VACLs
