Load Balancing with Bonding

Boost network data rates, reliability, and flexibility while slashing connectivity costs with our Software Defined Network (SDN/ SD-WAN) Load Balancing technology. Our software-defined network (SDN/ SD-WAN) load balancing engine can distribute the traffic and can route data using intelligent algorithms. It all adds up to high speeds and rock-solid dependability at a savings of up to 40% compared to solutions built on traditional WAN and other expensive links.

With our SD-WAN, all your cable, DSL, cellular, and other links will work together to handle even the most demanding traffic, without lags or downtime. When you need more speed, add more connections. Our Software Defined Network can be made application-aware, to ensure that the most important data and applications always get the VIP treatment.

Bandwidth Bonding − Packet-Level Bandwidth Bonding

Working hand-in-hand with Hot Failover and Private WAN, Network Bonding teams up all your connections to give you blazing throughput whenever you need it - giving you full Software Defined Network (SDN/ SD-WAN) flexibility and link resilience.

  • Multi-provider bandwidth bonding – Our Software Defined Network (SDN/ SD-WAN) Bonding combines multiple links from multiple providers into a single, superfast tunnel.

  • Automatic Hot Failover handoff – Our Software Defined Network (SDN/ SD-WAN) Bonding intelligently monitors connections and automatically turns control over to Hot Failover when links become unstable.

  • Easy, on-demand scalability − Need more speed for mission-critical VPNs? How about temporary bandwidth for a specific project? With bonding, you can plug in connections from any provider and get more bandwidth instantly. And you can unplug connections at any time, keeping your connectivity costs under control.

Other vendors have concentrated on balancing data flows, which creates a much slower failover environment and forces the vendor to deploy technologies like forwarding Error Correction (FEC) (read about the dangers of FEC) to compensate for the variable quality of Internet circuits and is specifically used to improve the perceived quality of IP telephone calls.

Beware of Forward Error Correction (“FEC”)

Other SD-WAN platforms try to deliver seamless failover for real-time sessions and voice calls, using Forward Error Correction (FEC) to compensate for the variable quality of internet circuits.

FEC compensates for the packet loss or jitter that standard, broadband internet circuits can create by duplicating voice packets over multiple circuits. Instead of providing a single set of packets over the best circuit, FEC floods all circuits with multiple sets of packets with the hope that eventually all the required packets will reach the other end.

Adding more volume of data packets to a limited and busy network isn’t the answer. 247 Network's Software Defined Network (SDN/ SD WAN) detects the quality of any of the circuits and ensures that packets are sent across the best-performing circuits at the time. And bi-directional, elastic Quality of Service plus sub-second failover ensures that real-time sessions and voice calls are uninterrupted, even failing over seamlessly to wireless LTE or 5G connections!
