With Bonded Connections, you can combine many Internet connections to create a faster, fault-proof online experience. Use any combination of links and get the total symmetric sum of all bonded circuits. Your bonded traffic is securely controlled at two locations: a customer premise appliance (CPE), and a server in your or one of our partners' datacenters, called an Aggregation Server.
Traffic bound for the client network first passes through the Aggregator, where the data stream is divided, each packet routed independently through one of your individual Internet connections. When the packets reach the CPE, they are recombined into the original data stream and forwarded to the client network. This benefits you with cross-carrier redundancy and increased download and upload speeds.
