Redundancy in Layer 3 Switch Routing Design

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hello, I am about to implement lan segmentation using a layer 3 switch to route 2 subnetworks. I am familiar with HSRP on routers to provide failover if one router fails. Do I do the same with a VLAN ip in a layer 3 switch? We will be using 2 Cisco 3560G-24TS, switches, each connected to 2 difference core switches via fiber. And interconnected to themselves using fiber..

Watch Question

Yes, you can do the same for vlan interfaces.
Do you need an example? (I suppose no, if you said that you are familiar :) )
