Dual Internet Connections (Load Balancing)

A client was sending and receiving a lot of data to external collaborators and was struggling with their limited internet connection. A leased line was out of the question for cost reasons so I specified and installed a 2mb SDSL Line and a good ADSL line with a load balancing router.

ADSL lines these days typically run at about 7-8mb Download and 0.75mb upload.SDSL lines can run at 2mb download and upload.

The problem is sending data away from the client network. They did not want to loose their 8mb ADSL download and move to a 2mb only service, but they did want the 2mb upload.

We installed a Load Balancing router that manages the two connections.

On the clients behalf I ordered the internet connections, supervised their installs and ordered the load balancing equipment.
