Hi folks -
I am planning to bundle 6 T1's together using Multilink PPP on a Cisco 2821 router. For that, I plan to order 3 dual
WIC's for terminating the 6T1's.
That being said, how is the traffic load balanced over the 6T1's? If the load balancing happens, is it per packet or per destination. The router will have CEF enabled.
All the 6T1's are from the same provider.
>> So if a router has to transmit a 100 MB file across a WAN using the 6T1's bundle, and assuming there is no traffic on the bundle, will the 100MB file fragments be sent over the first T1 alone or will the packets be evenly distributed over the 6 T1's?
evenly distributed over member links using a round robin algorithm eventually fragmented with each fragment sent on a different member link.
This is one of the reasons for using multilink ppp
Hope to help
