Is Cisco PortChannel and EtherChannel the same?

Is Cisco PortChannel and EtherChannel two different terms for the same thing?  Thanks.

Re: Is Cisco PortChannel and EtherChannel the same?

Hello,

As far as I know, yes - these two terms are synonyms, at least that's how I always understood it. The EtherChannel is the name for the technology itself while the Port-Channel refers to the virtual interface name created for purposes of representing the link bundle in the switch configuration.

Best regards,

Peter
