VSRP redundancy

You can configure VSRP to provide redundancy for Layer 2 and Layer 3:

  • Layer 2 only - The Layer 2 links are backed up but specific IP addresses are not backed up.
  • Layer 2 and Layer 3 - The Layer 2 links are backed up and a specific IP address is also backed up. Layer 3 VSRP is the same as VRRP-E. However, using VSRP provides redundancy at both layers at the same time.

The RUCKUS ICX device supports Layer 2 and Layer 3 redundancy. You can configure a device for either Layer 2 only or Layer 2 and Layer 3. To configure for Layer 3, specify the IP address you are backing up.

Note: If you want to provide Layer 3 redundancy only, disable VSRP and use VRRP-E.
