uRPF or Unicast Reverse Path Forwarding is a security feature/tool that help verifies reachability of source address in packets being forwarded. It can prevents malicious and spoofing attacks as it will perform forwarding table lookup on the source IP address. – it as defined in RFC3704 – it follows RFC2827 for ingress filtering. –  it relies on the CEF (Cisco Express Forwarding) or FIB table to perform lookups. – preferably implemented at the network edge facing internet, customers and servers…

As per Cisco documentation: A virtual PortChannel (vPC) allows links that are physically connected to two different Cisco Nexus devices to appear as a single Port Channel to a third device. The third device can be a Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extender or a switch, server, or any other networking device. A vPC can provide Layer 2 multipathing, which allows you to create redundancy by increasing bandwidth, enabling multiple parallel paths between nodes and load-balancing traffic where alternative paths…

Link Aggregation Control Protocol or  IEEE 802.3ad (LACP) is an open standard of Ethernet link aggregation protocol. It is a method used by routers/switches to automatically establish link aggregation groups or LAG ( sometimes called as channel groups, bundle or port-channels). Here’s LACP configuration examples for different Cisco platforms using LACP active mode, where it places a port into an active negotiating state and sending LACPDU (Data units) at regular intervals to seek out partners IOS (Catalyst 4500) Configuration: interface…

As per Cisco definition: Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) provides redundancy for IP networks, ensuring that user traffic immediately and transparently recovers from first hop router failures. HSRP allows multiple routers on a single LAN to share a virtual IP and MAC address which is configured as the default gateway on the hosts. From the group of routers configured in an HSRP group, there is one router elected as the active router and another as a standby router. The active…
