I am looking for possibilities of making a redundant/failover connection on a Dell PowerConnect 6248 switch. I am not 100% sure if this can even be done but here is my scenario.
I am currently installing a second/redundant fiber link into or main office from a satellite office and I know that there are devices out there that I can run both links into and create a failover environment. However I am questioning whether or not our current Dell switch can handle this process with out purchasing any additional hardware. I would like to be able to set up the switch to run the main link unless the link is broken and then failover to the second link.
I have looked a little at Link Aggregation, and I may be wrong, but that seem like it will still use both links. Just getting started here and any help is greatly appreciated
