Challenges of bonding Internet connections with diverse characteristics

One of the main challenges of bonding Internet connections with diverse characteristics is that it can be difficult to effectively combine the different signals and technologies. Each type of connection, such as fiber optic, coaxial, wireless, or satellite, can have different characteristics, such as speed, latency, reliability, and availability, and it can be challenging to find the right balance and configuration that can effectively combine these characteristics. Additionally, bonding connections with diverse characteristics can also require specialized bonding equipment and software, as well as technical expertise, to set up and maintain the connections, which can add to the complexity and cost of the solution. Furthermore, bonding connections with diverse characteristics can also be affected by external factors, such as weather conditions, network congestion, or interference, which can further impact the performance and reliability of the connection.

Another potential challenge of bonding connections with diverse characteristics is that it can be difficult to manage and monitor the performance of the connection. Since the connection is composed of multiple links, each with its own characteristics and performance metrics, it can be difficult to accurately assess the overall performance of the connection and identify any potential issues or bottlenecks. Additionally, the performance of the connection can also vary depending on the location and usage patterns of the user, which can further complicate the monitoring and management of the connection. As a result, bonding connections with diverse characteristics can require regular testing and optimization to ensure that the connection is operating at its best and meeting the needs of the user.

comBOX networks have managed to address these challenges by introducing an advanced multi-wan bonding technology which integrates a real time link monitoring feature that allows for optimal routing decisions. The bonding algorithm is able to use connections with diverse characteristics in terms of latency, throughput and jitter and in most cases can reach the maximum bonded throughput without any special configuration or manual enforced optimizations. Moreover, the comBOX bandwidth aggregation servers are hosted in reliable regional data centers offering multihomed Internet connectivity as well as direct peering connections with regional ISPs and data centers, thus potentially avoiding network congestion that might affect the performance of the bonded Internet connection.

Furthermore, the team at comBOX Networks has a great experience in providing multi-wan bonding solutions to various vertical markets and different use cases and can guide you so you can implement a bonded internet connection following the best practices.
