Dual t-3 can i bind them into 90mbps

Unanswered Question
Jan 8th, 2008

I have 2 t-3 circuits through the same isp and was wondering if anyone knows of a way to bind them together to make 90mbps. Currently we round robin the packets. I currently have a 3745 router with 2 hssi cards. I have no problems with buying more hardware. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.

I have this problem too.

That is more of a question for your ISP.

If you are running from the same provider, are you running from the same POP?

If that is the case if you run equal rate static routes then you in effect do the same thing.

Parallel links should not round robin packets, it has a detrimental effects, as it causes out-of-sequence for TCP.

Use CEF and it will nicely balance and stick flows to circuits. Drawback, no single session will be faster than T3.
