Increasing Site-to-Site Network Bandwidth Capacity & Reliability
Site-to-site network is mostly created based on leased lines or MPLS, both of which are still costly, in order to reliably connect corporate network and branch offices together. Lots of enterprises spend large amount of money for these connectivity services.

Traditional Site-to-Site Network 

The following are some of the challenges faced by multi-location enterprises: 

  • The cost for MPLS and leased-line services can be times of the cost for business-class broadband Internet service.

  • When more bandwidth is required in order to accommodate the increasing demand, this could mean expensive upgrades, or change of WAN infrastructure sometimes.

  • The traditional site-to-site network connectivity is based on a single Internet circuit. Should the circuit fails, there is no way to backup the connectivity between the locations.

Packet-Level Bandwidth Bonding

In the diagram illustrated above, three WAN links are connected to the branch network, while the headquarters network is connected with a high-speed internet line. Q-Balancer XBond securely links the branch and corporate networks together and aggregate the bandwidth of all paths at the branch network for greater backhaul capacity. Hence, sufficient bandwidth for application delivery would not be an issue because low-cost broadband connections can be added as soon as it is needed.

Q-Balancer XBond combines bandwidth for site-to-site circuits and makes the bonded circuit work like a virtual leased line. The increased bandwidth theoretically equals to the sum of the separate connections.

The technology enables enterprises to replace expensive leased line or MPLS services with low-cost broadband connections. The replacement provides similar level of backhaul quality to MPLS network at a fraction of cost. When bandwidth demand grows, enterprises can flexibly increase bandwidth by adding more WAN links for branch networks. In the event of link failure, Q-Balancer diverts the site-to-site traffic to the remaining active path(s) without sessions dropped. This ensures 99.99% network continuity for multi-location enterprises.
