Aggregate

This feature is available only on SN510, SN710, SN910, SN2000, SN2100, SN3000, SN3100, SN6000, SN6100, SNi20 and SNi40 models. There are two types of aggregates:

  • LACP: the LACP feature helps improve the firewall’s bandwidth while maintaining a high level of availability (link redundancy).

  • Redundancy: with the redundancy feature, a backup link can be set up in case the main link (identified as Master in the aggregate) stops responding.

NOTE
The use of stackable switches is recommended as this would allow link redundancy between both appliances.
