          Definition - What does Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) mean?

          Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) is a protocol for the collective handling of multiple physical ports that can be seen as a single channel for network traffic purposes. This serves the general principle of link aggregation, which describes the effort of setting up parallel network structures to provide redundancy, or to improve performance.
