why we should connect two distribution switches with etherchannel

Dear All,

i was wondering if there is any reason that make us in desiging LAN connect the two distribution switches directly with etherchannel more than having more redundant connection.

why we should connect two distribution switches with etherchanne

The only thing is that it will add the bandwidth.........as ompare to single port....secondly if there is port channel and one link ails the swicth doesnt have to redo STP and thus can use the same channel..its like catch 22.......its good o have port channel i would say
