Mobile Bandwidth Bonding

As more and more business takes place outside the office, telecom providers have responded by boosting the speed and reliability of their 3G networks, in addition to rolling out innovations like 4G, LTE, and WiMax in an increasing number of markets. But no matter how quickly cellular data bandwidth and quality improve, mobile business always seems to demand more. From live video streaming and conferencing to ever-larger file transfers and real-time collaboration, today’s mobile applications strain even the latest and greatest cellular technology to its limits. The result is fluctuating data quality, unpredictable data rates, and widespread frustration, in addition to costly overage charges.

And then there’s security to consider. Though many businesspeople would like to expand mobile operations, they’re concerned about the cost of extra VPN equipment necessary to encrypt sensitive business data over cellular connections. Because of this and the inadequate speed and reliability of current cellular technology, businesses are reluctant to rely on cellular connections for demanding and mission-critical applications.

Peplink Case Study – Endicott College – A Smart Solution to Increasing Bandwidth Needs

A Smart Solution to Increasing Bandwidth Needs
Endicott College
Founded in 1939 in Beverly Massachusetts, Endicott College is one of the most scenic higher education institutions in America. Every day, Endicott’s 235-acre oceanfront campus buzzes with the activity of over 2500 students pursuing one its dozens of undergraduate and graduate degrees.
A Growing Student Body Strains an Aging Campus Network
Over   the last 25 years, Endicott College’s enrollment has grown quickly, as   has its faculty and administration. With this influx of students and   employees – and the increased demand for ultra-reliable network   connectivity and speed – came the need for a load balancing and   failover solution.
In   the past, Rob Klopotoski, Endicott’s Network Manager, tried offerings   from other vendors, but couldn’t find the right mix of dependability,   features, and ease-of-use. Some solutions required expensive and   time-consuming architecture changes, something Klopotoski wanted to   avoid. For Endicott, the best-case scenario was a solution that provided   rock-solid load balancing and failover, drop-in deployment, and LAN   bypass.
When   Klopotoski discovered Peplink and the Balance series of Multi-WAN   routers, he knew he’d found the solution he’d been looking for – plus   some benefits he hadn’t expected.
Beginning with Best-in-Class Load Balancing
Klopotoski began his network upgrade with the Balance 710.
“The   primary driver to purchase a load-balancer for our Internet lines was   the ability to get into our campus from offsite in the event of a   failover, and so that our most important servers would still be   accessible,” said Klopotoski. “Since the provider we had in the past had   intermittent issues with providing service, it was important to have a   backup plan.”
But   the Balance 710 quickly became more than a backup plan, assuming DNS   server, inbound and outbound NAT mapping, and outbound policy duties.

Boosting Speed and Capacity with the Balance 1350
Klopotoski   was so pleased with the 710’s one-box solution – and its performance   and stability – that when Endicott’s primary connection was boosted   from 150Mb to 500Mb about 18 months ago, he upgraded to the Balance   1350.
“My   experience with this device over the last year-and-a-half has been very   positive,” notes Klopotoski. “We have nearly 2500 students using the   Internet at night, and this box has easily handled the load.”
Keeping Students and Staff Connected at All Times
Now,   Endicott can accommodate more than 5000 simultaneous users with a   maximum throughput of 1500Mbps. To handle the occasional connection   failure and keep students and staff online at all times, Klopotoski   added two inexpensive 100Mb cable lines.
“Because   this system handles our website traffic, mail server, staff and student   portal, online course activities, and registration, we cannot afford   any downtime,” said Klopotoski. “In the event we’ve had a line go down,   the Peplink has made those failures nearly invisible to our users.”
Peplink Earns an A+ for Easy, Affordable, and Capable Campus Networking
In   the 18 months he’s been using the Balance 1350, Klopotoski has been   especially impressed with how easy it is to configure and manage.   “Anything I want to set up is simple, without resorting to the command   line. The simplicity is one of the strongest features,” he said. “It   just works. I’m extremely happy with it.”
And   then there’s cost, both initial and continuing. According to   Klopotoski, the Balance delivers on both fronts, featuring a very   reasonable price point, few support issues, and the ongoing savings of   being able to use low-cost links for backup and failover.
Today,   Klopotoski couldn’t be happier he chose the Balance to serve as the   cornerstone for Endicott College’s campus network. According to this   network manager, the Balance more than earns its high grades at   Endicott: “I’ve gotten pretty much everything I’ve needed out of it,”   Klopotoski said. “I really can’t think of anything else I’d want it to   do.”

High Performance Routing for Every Application.

Peplink’s load balancing algorithms help you easily fine-tune how traffic is distributed across connections. Each deployment has a unique setup, and Peplink’s enterprise grade load balancing features can fulfill all of your special requirements. Create your own rule with the following algorithms and you can sit back and enjoy the high performance routing that Peplink brings to you.

Weighted Balance
Assign more traffic to a faster link or less traffic to a connection with a bandwidth cap.

  • Set a weight on the scale for each connection and outgoing traffic will be proportionally distributed according to the specified ratio. (e.g. 1:3:2)

Priority
Route traffic to your preferred link as long as it’s available.

  • Arrange the connection priority order, and traffic will be routed through the healthy link that has the highest priority in the list. Lower priority links will only be used if the current connection fails.

Overflow
Prevent traffic flow from slowing down when the connection runs out of available bandwidth.

  • Drag and drop to arrange the connection overflow order and the highest priority link will route traffic as long as it has not been congested. Once it saturates, the lower priority links will start routing traffic.

Persistence
Eliminate session termination issue for HTTPS, E-banking, and other secure websites.

  • Specify a traffic type and it will be routed through the same connection persistently based on its source and/or destination IP addresses. Traffic will keep routing on the same connection until the session ends.

Least Used
Help you choose the better connection with more free bandwidth.

  • Traffic will be directed to the link with the most available bandwidth among the selected connections.

Lowest Latency
Give you the fastest response time when using applications like online gaming.

  • Traffic will be assigned to the link with the lowest latency time among the selected connections.

Enforced
Restrict outbound traffic to a particular connection.

  • Select a connection and the specified traffic type will be routed through it at all times, whether the link is up or down.
  • For scenarios like accessing a server that only allows users from a specific IP.
