Bonded Broadband Overview

What is bonded broadband?

Bonded Broadband allows customers to physically bond two or more broadband connections together to form a single virtual pipe. Bonding broadband provides enhanced download and upload speeds as well as providing a resilient connection by bonding different broadband technologies, such as annexm, ADSL Max, ADSL 2+ and SDSL via multiple carriers and independent DSLAMS.

How does Bonded Broadband work?

 Bonded Broadband solution allows customers to bond  broadband, or ISP independent broadband in to a single connection.  the customer is provided with a new Internet facing IP range, and traffic is routed to core bonding appliances located within  21CN resilient Gigabit networks.

At this point the traffic is split and diversely routed down the customers individual broadband circuits where the packets are reassembled by the bonding customer premises equipment.

What equipment is required to bond broadband?

To enable Bonded Broadband solution the customer requires two or more DSL connections each assigned a minimum of 2 useable IP addresses (/30 subnet), one for the customers broadband router and a spare useable address for the appliance.

A core appliance is required at the customer premises to bond the connections together, also a suitable firewall is required to connect the LAN to the bonded connection and provide suitable firewalling.

Does bonding broadband increase latency?

Bonding two or more circuits together does not put any additional unnecessary latency on the connection. The bonded broadband solution is suitable for running business critical applications from Voice Over IP to VPN's and video.

Can I use my existing DSL links via my current ISP?

Yes bondend broadband can provide an ISP independent bonded solution that allows you to utilise your existing DSL connections.
