We will implement the HSRP, thre are two routers in pair. one is handling voice, other is handling data. If one of them is down, other router can take care all roles (voice and data). It is the basic HSRP function.

We would like to know whether it supports the loading balancing (or load sharing). If so, How to implement the "loading sharing" under HSRP? please advise

Best regards,

I agree with Edison that you should go with GLBP if you want load balancing.

What Om is suggesting is called as MHSRP where in you configure the routers in such a way that one router is active for one vlan and second router active for another. Though this gives you some amount of loadbalancing, GLBP is a better solution
