CombiLink - Combine several Internet lines for high data rates and redundancy

Swiss network operator Monzoon Networks AG is offering a bundling solution for several Internet links (DSL, Fibre/FTTH, Cable, LTE/3G/GPRS, etc.) to one single high speed Internet connection with high redundancy.

All available WAN technologies are being bundled through a multichannel VPN router generating a single, highly available network connection. This multichannel technology generates a real time bundling of all connected Internet lines. CombiLink is able to combine any type of Internet connection (ADSL, SDSL, 3G/HSPA+, LTE, GPRS, Cable, etc.) offering one single Internet line at the LAN interface. This provides the total capacity of up-/downstream bandwidths of for Internet connection. Encryption is available for the connection between the on-site router at customer premises and the centralized backend in Switzerland.

Such bundling concept can save a lot of money due to the use of cheap Internet lines instead of costly, high availability Internet connections. Underlying Internet lines can be exchanged at any time without interrupting the CombiLink service or changing IP addresses for local LAN or servers.
