Setting up an IRF fabric

You can use HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology to connect and virtualize A5500 HI
switches into a virtual switch called an "IRF fabric" or "IRF virtual device" for flattened network topology,
and high availability, scalability, and manageability.
IMPORTANT:
To set up IRF connection between A5500 HI switches, you must use 10-Gigabit ports.
