I would like to set up 2 pair wireless bridge between two site . 1 pair wireless Bridge for normal use. another pair wireless Bridge is used  when another pair wireless bridge  link is fail

Building A

1 set Cisco Outdoor AP For Exising use (GB C AP)

1 set Cisco Outdoor AP For Back UP (GB D AP)

Building B

1 set Cisco Outdoor AP For Existing use (GB C AP)

1 set Cisco Outdoor AP For Back UP (GB D AP)

Building A

All AP (GB C & GB D AP)connect to cisco 2960 switch

Building B

As same as Buiilding A  - All AP (GB C & GB D AP)connect to cisco 2960 switch

For this case, do you have what method for failover solution.

when GB C AP Link is down, data traffic can change to GB D Link to route.

Is it idea possible?

Thanks

About Wireless Bridge Failover idea

If you are able to keep both radios powered, you could setup an etherchannel on each side. Set the mode to your desired behavior active-backup.

This may provide you information about LACP if needed

Hi John,

See whether below post helps you, where I have posted a sample configuration for load balance traffic across two wireless bridge links.

https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/4125800#4125800

I doubted you can configure etherchannel across two wireless bridge links. If you configure two independant bridges & pass same vlans then one end switch ports will be get blocked by STP.

That's a great point Rasika, I had in my head microwave links I've aggregated before.

In the past I have deployed multiple bridge link on a layer 3 interface. You can also do like Rasika mentioned and set it up on layer two and define the spanning tree priority and load balance that way.
