I’m trying to configure WAN smoothing using 2 highly contended conventional WAN connections, plus 2 cell connections. I’m running 8.1.2 build 5114.
The (very) contended WANs are the best available but are not reliable and can have high latency. The high latency then pushes traffic over the cell connections and costs a lot of $ as we often have 3 or 4 HD video conferences running simultaneously.
I’ve tried various configurations based on forum research and trial and error.
Maximum level on same WAN. I had hoped that when set to off it would recognize that one half of the bond had failed and pull a lower priority cell connection in place. I haven’t been able to find any observable difference in performance.
This configuration consumes lots of cellular data when WAN latency is high
This configuration requires both WANs to hard fail and wait about 15 seconds for the health check to fail (I know that I can reduce the health check trigger time) before a cellular connection is used.
Please let me know how to improve the set-up.
