Link Aggregation Support on IAP-22x

Aruba Employee
Q:

Is Link Aggregation Supported on IAP-22x?



A:

Yes, Link Aggregation is supported on IAP-22x

IAP-22x supports the IEEE 802.11ac standard for high-performance WLAN.

To support maximum traffic, port aggregation is required to increase throughput and enhance reliability.

IAP-22x supports link aggregation using either standard port-channel (configuration based) or LACP (protocol signaling based).

LACP provides a standardized means for exchanging information with partner systems to form a dynamic link aggregation
group. The LACP feature is automatically enabled during IAP boots and it dynamically detects the AP with the
LACP capability, by checking if there is any LACP Protocol Data Unit (PDU) received on either eth0 or eth1 port.

For LACP support, the port-channel must be enabled on the switch and there is no configuration required on
the IAP. However, you can view the LACP status on the IAP-224 and IAP-225 by using the show lacp status
command.
