It will soon be necessary to upgrade our border routers to more than 100Mbit on the inside interfaces, gigabit fiber is one option but EtherChannel seems to a "cheap middle way" in terms of budget. To begin with it will only be necessary to channel 2 FE ports and the hardware is 7513 routers and (probably) Cat3524 switches.
I understand that EtherChannel is not "real" bundling, but that you atleast achieve load balancing and redundancy in the link. Does anyone have experience with it in similar setup?
