Bonded Broadband

Bonded Broadband

With the exponential growth of the Internet and the need for businesses to have access to the internet all the time, the carriers in the UK have failed to provide faster services across the country to all users. In certain areas, Ethernet Leased Lines can be very expensive and Fibre Broadband capabilities none existent. Bonded Broadband could be the solution.

Also, for clients that are based in remote locations or in areas where broadband speeds are generically poor, a bonded broadband solution can be a cost effective way to add more bandwidth and increase broadband speeds.

A bonded broadband solution is the installation of multiple broadband, fibre broadband or Ethernet lines into one site, acting as one connection. With bonding, routers and devices we can deliver up to 6 bonded lines that can be presented as;

  • One single line with a faster download speed
  • Appear as multiple lines that can be load-balanced onto your network.
  • Separate voice and data onto different lines
  • Prioritise certain traffic onto certain lines

Types of Bonded Broadband

We provide our clients with two version of bonded broadband:

  • Load Balanced Broadband
  • True Bonded Broadband

 

Load Balanced Broadband

Load Balancing is where multiple broadband connections are configured but the traffic passed over each line is not shared across the multiple lines. Our load balancer will route traffic optimally across the multiple connections. Our Load Balanced solution does not truly bond the lines together but allows us to separate your traffic across multiple lines. As an example, we can send traffic for VOIP across one particular broadband line and data across another(s).

To add further resileince to our solutions we can also provide each broadband line across different networks. Our primary supplier is BT, but we can provide a solution that includes Vodafone and Talk Talk to reduce the potential of outages from those single suppliers.

 

True Bonded Broadband

True Bonded Broadband works very similar to Load Balanced Broadband but the unique difference is that the bonded lines are aggregated into one single connection. This provides our customers with a greater download and upload speed acting as a one single connection.

This service is provided with a specialist bonding router installed on the clients site which is complimented with a similar but a master bonding device on our core network. Even though the service is configured as a single bonded link, we can still provide resilience by configuring the solution to still be operational if one of the broadband lines fail.
