What do you mean by load

What do you mean by load balancing?

We typically use that term in referring to a load balancer which balances workload of a set of servers using some sort of Virtual IP or VIP. Products like a Citrix Netscaler or F5 Local Traffic Manager (LTM).

In the context of a router you can balance outbound links using a dynamic routing protocol like BGP but it depends on your service provisioned at the site. You can balance inbound traffic using a first hop redundancy protocol like HSRP. All Cisco routers do that to some level but which one to choose depends on throughput and speed requirements.
