Do our switches support this? #justwondering

Options
Hi there,
Recently, I faced this issue with one of my clients, who is a large ISP here in India.
They claimed that their Huawei switches have more features than others.

Putting two and two together, it became to large debate, and I was the chosen one to lead an investigation over the features offered by zyxel switches.
I was surprised upon this one feature offered by Huawei. [e-Trunk in Ethernet Switching
I know, LACP feature is widely supported by our switches, but do we offer anything around this?

Another feature, was about ERPS G.8032 support, i guess it is ethernet ring protection. but couldn't find any specifics in multiple datasheets.
 
Can someone guide me on this? which zyxel switch models offer these feature?

Regards
Kinshuk Joshi

    Hi @Kinshuk_Tech,

    Zyxel switch does not support these two features.
    Could you share which Huawei switch and Zyxel switch were you comparing?
    And what's your goal? Is it for redundancy?

    Hi @Kinshuk_Tech,

    It's been a while do not receive your feedback. Is there still a problem?
    I want to point out that these two features (e-trunk & ERPS G.8032) are typically utilized in the data center network. 
    Since the Zyxel switches are normally used in business networks, we can use VRRP and RSTP instead.
