Switch Redundancy for PIX or Router 2800 series in standby configuration

Does anyone can provide some idea of how to make switch redundancy for PIX and /or Router 2800 series in standby configuration? Requirements are high availability (at list 2 of everything), but not load balancing Thanks

(?) Fairly straight forward, and for the PIX, has a few chapters in the docs describing failover? You need a switch ahead of the PIXs and a switch behind them for the failover.

For the router, you probably are interested in doing HSRP or VRRP for the LAN side. Depends quite a bit for the other side as for your topology.

There's several Cisco SRNDs on HA..
