Broadbond (BROADband BONDing) is a unique and patented technology which actually combines multiple broadband links (DSL, cable, wireless, T1, etc) in to a single, faster, and more reliable, connection to the Internet. Connect to any remote HTTP server, like Micrsoft or YouTube and download files at lightning fast speeds.
Older technology simply balances sessions across Internet links where one connection goes out one link, and another connection goes out another link. Our Broadbond technology actually combines the download throughput of two or more WAN links by using each link for the same session at the same time.
Unlike other products on the market which require multiple devices in order to achieve a fusion of link speeds, Broadbond can combine any combination of broadband links in order to speed up web downloads and improve performance out to the Internet in general and not just between two sites.
Fast, Redundant, and Optimized Internet Connectivity is what XRoads Networks delivers in its Network Load Balancer appliance. The questions to ask include: Is Internet access critical to your organization?, Does your organization host Internet accessible applications?, Do your end-users ever complain about slow Internet or application access over the network? If your organization has mission critical Internet and/or cloud-based applications then reliable and responsive connectivity is a must.
Benefits of a Link Bonding Device
A link bonder improves network throughput and optimizes the end-user experience through faster and more responsive applications utilizing our applied patent Multi Session Acceleration, Vector Routing and Best Path Routing technologies.
A link bonder can dramatically lower reoccurring cost by providing for the connectivity of multiple inexpensive broadband links instead of a single large Internet connection. While at the same time ensuring that an organization is not bound to a single provider.
A link bonder ensures reliable Internet connectivity for both end-users and inbound server systems by automatically monitoring connectivity and re-routing traffic as needed in the event of an Internet link outage. With our ActiveDNS technology the Network Load Balancer is able to failover both outgoing and incoming traffic for full network redundancy.
Most "link load balancing" products on the market simply balance individual sessions between ISP links. Only the EdgeXOS platform with its Broadbond technology, based on Multi-Session Acceleration™ is able to bond links in order to increase bandwidth and accelerate web traffic. The EdgeXOS platform not only combines the bandwidth of each ISP-link but actually accelerates web downloads. Example: Start with a single 2.5Mbps DSL link, then add a second 2.5Mbps DSL link, the total combined throughput can reach over 10Mbps. That's WAN bonding! Learn More >
The EdgeXOS appliance includes fully integrated active routing technology called Vector Routing. Vector Routing includes three unique capabilities, 1) advanced load balancing algorithms for general traffic balancing, 2) policy-based routing for session persistent application routing, and 3) an SLA monitoring, path testing dynamic routing technology called Best Path Routing. With Vector Routing a network administrator can choose how much control they want over specific traffic types, or whether to simply allow the EdgeXOS platform to automatically optimize the traffic, either way Internet access will never be the same.
A primary reason for most customers to purchase a network load balancer is to ensure that in the event of an ISP outage that their critical network services continue to operate as usual. The EdgeXOS platform includes advanced Deep Path Inspection™ which not only tests local gateway connectivity, like most simple "link load balancers", but probes deep in to the Internet to ensure full Internet connectivity. To ensure inbound server connectivity the EdgeXOS platform utilizes our ActiveDNS™ technology which provides instant inbound URL failover.
