Hi George,
   You can setup two pairs of 7731, in parallel but on different channels, providing double the bandwidth/throughput, and if one 7731 ever lost power/is rebooted, the second link maintains your connectivity.  This is somewhat better than an unused "backup" link.

sounds good , is it really that easy any other details we need to take care of  or configurations on switches

If mounting the 7731s on the same pole, separate them by at least 1m/3ft...
Depending on switches/features you might be able to load-balance, or STP might shut down one link.

we have a extra  Barracuda link Balancer (hardware) , if we had one for each side would that help with  making  connections  and managing/monitoring  links
