NWIMS Bonding will aggregate the actual speeds of the lines connected to the service minus a small overhead. For example, if you have two Broadband connections, one running at 2Mbps downstream and the other at 4Mbps downstream, the aggregated performance will be up to 5Mbps downstream. NWIMS Bonding aggregates both the upstream and downstream bandwidth. Utilizing normal ASDL broadband connections to larger Fibre connections bonding multiple lines together reaching over 500Mbit/s depending on how many lines aggretated together and their individual speeds, 500Mbit/s would be approximatly 8-10 fibre lines bonded together at the data centre level.
NWIMS Bonding cannot create “new bandwidth” – it aggregates the total Broadband connections and delivers what is actually available at that time. Line speeds are not always as advertised or constant throughout the day or week. NWIMS Bonding Software tests the line speeds periodically and adjusts the distribution of packets to optimize the aggregated performance. In addition, packet re-sequencing is automatically activated when connections are detected to be very different speeds and latencies.
