"Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) is part of an IEEE specification (802.3ad) that allows you to bundle several physical ports together to form a single logical channel. LACP allows a switch to negotiate an automatic bundle by sending LACP packets to the peer. It performs a similar function as Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) with Cisco EtherChannel."
LACP is usually used where you need to channel the equipment of multiple vendors together. We for example use it to create a 4 Gig channel between a Nortel 8610 and a Cisco 3750.
In a purely Cisco environment there is no benefit to using LACP - you should probably use etherchannel with PAgP.

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
