Cheapest switch with Link Aggregation – (NIC Teaming)
What is Link aggregation?
Link aggregation will combine 2 or more Ethernet ports into a one logical link between two network devices like computers or NAS. This will mean doubled or quadrupled bandwidth to use for super fast data transfer. What we care about is which switch is smart enough to be able to manage link aggregation and also which one is the cheapest. Link aggregation or NIC Teaming is also called by other names like:
Network interface controller (NIC) bonding
What are the benefits of link aggregation?
Better use of hardware – balancing the load
Increased reliability and availability
Cost effective – don’t need to upgrade network
