Downlink and Uplink Aggregation- Bonded Internet is a Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN), load balancing router with packet level aggregation. Bonded Internet, bonds Internet access lines for all types of traffic (including encrypted traffic such as VPN) for aggregated downlink and uplink capacity.
SD-WAN is WAN Virtualization
In the same way server virtualization abstracts the underlying physical hardware from the logical virtual servers that run on it, WAN virtualization is where a logical WAN connection (to either the Internet or between branch offices) can use multiple underlying connectivity technologies (like xDSL, MPLS, cellular and fiber) at the same time but presents this connectivity to users and applications as a single direct to Internet or secure site to site connection.
Elastic Static IP
A static IP in the cloud is provided as part of the Broadband Bonding Service and is mapped onto the Customer’s firewall. This means that static IP is available for services and inbound network access even during WAN outages, as long as at least one of the WAN links is up. Thus making the IP provided by the ISP, transparent to the network.
Cellular 3G/4G WAN connection
The on site device supports 4+ USB ports for cellular 3G/4G data cards. The cellular data card dongle can be configured as a fail-over-only or always-on WAN connection. In fail-over mode, in case of all the wired Internet access lines fail, the cellular data card will take over in less than 0.5 seconds.
DNS Load Balancing for Inbound Requests
Our SD WAN can easily be configured to provide Dynamic DNS load-balancing for inbound requests for internally hosted servers such as web-servers, ftp-servers, mail-servers etc.
Traffic Smoothing utilizes intelligent algorithms to fill in connectivity gaps, trading bandwidth for greater connection resiliency. Traffic Smoothing minimizes latency and reduces the impact of packet loss. This is useful for times when you need connection reliability and responsiveness more than speed.
For our SD WAN solution into your existing network, no changes are required at your firewall or network. Simply slide in the device between your existing network/firewall and your existing modem and add the additional WAN links as you need. All the installation and configuration can be done through the web-based management interface locally or remotely.
