Bonded cellular connection requirements?


#1

In looking at dual sim options (MAX-BR2-SF-IP55 or MAX-HD2-mini), is the bonding only available when connecting via speedfusion to another pepwave product (Balance)?

Goal is to increase bandwidth available to a zero network environment for portable demonstration purposes.


#2

You will be able to load balance between both of your SIM cards but to achieve WAN aggregation of your links this will require Speedfusion which is site-to-site. You would need another Speedfusion device on the other end or Fusion Hub which is software based to terminate the other end of the tunnel.


#3

So I would have some benefit, particularly using different ports, with the dual sim solution. I would have more benefit by including speedfusion in the solution?


#4

Basically:

–Without SpeedFusion: You will round robin between both SIMs using each SIM individually. Once a session is initiated it will send it out 1 SIM at a time.

–With SpeedFusion: It will combine both Links into one large pipe. Once a session is initiated it will send the data down the tunnel (Both SIMs) at a time.
