These commands are used to form an etherchannel which is a number of single links grouped together to form one large connection.

Portchannel 1 will the logical interface that represents the one large connection.

Channel-group 1 will be applied to the individual links eg


channel-group 1 mode on


channel-group 1 mode on

int gi1/3

channel-group 1 mode on

int po1

Basically "channel-group 1 mode on" command ads an interface to a port channel number 1.

"port channel 1" is a name of a bundled interface to which all the added interfaces belong.

You can configure this interface by issuing

"interface port channel 1" command
