People new to Peplink often have this question:

I have a 10Mbps internet, if I add another 10Mbps internet with a Peplink, do I have a 20Mbps internet?

Short answer is: YES. Let us explain.

Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) and Load Balancing

Say you have a Peplink Balance SD-WAN router with 2x 10Mbps DSL internet connections, each plugged into one of the ethernet WAN ports.

The same goes for Pepwave MAX router with any type of landline or mobile internet e.g. Lease Line and 4G LTE/3G.

You also have one computer connected to the Peplink Balance on its LAN port.

When you open an email client to check email, Peplink Balance will send it off to DSL #1 so your latest emails and attachments are being downloaded at up to 10Mbps.

While your emails and attachments are downloading, you open a web browser and go to a website, Peplink Balance will send it off to DSL #2 so the web page and all of its images and contents are being downloaded at up to 10Mbps.

This as you can see will give you 10Mbps + 10 Mbps = 20Mbps of internet.

As you can imagine, if you have multiple computers connected to the LAN ports of Peplink Balance instead of just one, all of the different types of internet traffic from these computers will be distributed over all of your internet connections as well.

10Mbps + 10 Mbps = 20Mbps of internet for all computers on LAN.

And if all of a sudden DSL #1 is down due to a provider network outage, Peplink Balance will see that DSL #1 no longer has internet access and will route all of your internet traffic to DSL #2 until DSL #1 is back.

SpeedFusion Bandwidth Bonding Hybrid WAN

If however you have only one computer/surveillance camera/video or voice conference on the network. It is doing one thing only. Be it a single video or audio stream, or a single upload or download. And you want it to be able to use both 10Mbps DSLs for a total speed of 20Mbps, is it still possible then?

Short answer is also: YES. And this is enabled by SpeedFusion Bandwidth Bonding Hybrid WAN.

While the design of TCP/IP which is the protocol of communication for internet traffic does not allow for one thing, from one computer or network device, to go across on multiple internet connections, Peplink, with its 10 years and counting of research, developed their patented technology, SpeedFusion, to over this limitation.

This requires a Peplink Balance or Pepwave MAX, supporting SpeedFusion Bandwidth Bonding, at each end of the transmission. SpeedFusion will then be able to bond all the internet connection into a single data-pipe so that even one thing, from one computer or network device, be it a single video or audio stream, or a single upload or download, can go across on multiple internet connections.
