Hi, I'm looking for a switch that supports link aggregation, or NIC teaming, I believe.  

Any help is appreciated.

Great thanks Pgm, so LACP is what I look for?  is there a way to tell how many ports are avalable for that? or are they all?

Every port is available for LACP.
You do need to make sure the network cards support it,but most server cards will  support link aggregation.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

If you have Windows 2012, you have built-in teaming option, otherwise you have to use vendor's software (BACS for Broadcom, HP NIC Teaming Utility...).

Regarding switches - every normal switch supports LACP. On the server side you choose what would you like - most of the cases are LACP with failover (if one adapter goes down, the other takes all the traffic)

Ok, thanks guys, one more before I close this, and thanks again, do I need to do anything on the switch configuration wise in it or is an automatic function?

If you need simply LACP with failover only, then you don't need to do anything.
