Link Aggregation – How It Works

Combine multiple Internet connections to increase throughput and redundancy

Speedify’s proprietary link aggregation implementation enables you to combine multiple Internet connections for higher bandwidth, lower latency and overall connection reliability. Once connected to our Speed Servers in the cloud, Speedify optimizes your online experience by intelligently distributing upload and download traffic between all available Internet connections.

How Speedify’s link aggregation is better than others

Most link aggregation solutions aren’t intelligent and just blindly split traffic over each network connection in a “round robin” manner, like dealing cards in a card game. Speedify’s smart link aggregation solution is capable of detecting the capabilities of each network connection in real time and intelligently distributes the traffic so that you will get up to 95% efficiency of their combined throughput.

Minimizing Packet Loss = Maximizing Link Aggregation Efficiency

Speedify’s link aggregation implementation features an optimized forward error correction algorithm that was built for speed, security and reliability. This makes sure that nothing will hold back the speed or quality of the Internet connection so you can always enjoy uninterrupted business calls without buffering of jitter even on lower-bandwidth conditions. All this while your privacy and online activities are safe!

Speedify fixes high packet loss rates: even with just one Internet connection it instantly detects when a packet has been lost, and resends it before the Internet protocol realizes that – thereby preventing connection slowdowns before they occur.

It gets even better if you’re using Speedify with more than one connection, as the lost packets can be routed through the other available connections via Speedify’s smart algorithm.

The internal tests speak for themselves: at the same level of packet loss, Speedify manages to increase the Internet speed up to 4 times, while keeping you safe from online threats.

Speedify’s Link Aggregation Adds Flexibility, Cost-Effective Scalability and Security

Speedify’s link aggregation technology is more than just the standard 802.3ad or 802.1ax implementations. Here’s what it brings more of:

  • Flexibility: Unlike more expensive, hardware-based channel bonding solutions, Speedify’s channel bonding technology is software-based and uses fast cloud servers which act as a middleman between you and the rest of the Internet. No more outdated hardware that needs to be replaced every couple of years!
  • Cost-effective scalability: This is a direct effect of Speedify’s link aggregation architecture. Being software only, it can be deployed very easily both on clients’ devices and on providers’ existing infrastructure at only a fraction of the costs you would normally see with a traditional hardware + software implementation.
  • Security and online privacy: Speedify has VPN capabilities and securely combines multiple Internet streams so that you can be sure no one can eavesdrop on the online traffic being aggregated. All the private browsing data is safe.

Link Aggregation Implementation Case: WiFi Offloading for carriers and MVNOs

Without an incentive to self-offload, carriers and MVNOs are once again faced with the problem of too much expensive data and too little bandwidth. As unlimited plans surge in popularity, carriers face a crisis. Without widespread offloading, existing 4G networks will crash under the load of all that data. See how Speedify can solve all this efficiently and cost-effectively!
