Aggregating Bandwidth

We're looking at pulling in two T1s and aggregating the bandwidth so that we have one big pipe. So far I've been getting different information depending on what ISP I talk to on what's involved in doing this. So far I've been told I need to implement MLPPP, but I have to buy a Tasman router to do it, then I was told MLPPP will work on the 7140 router that I currently have, then someone else told me to use CEF.

Any ideas on which is the best way to go?

Re: Aggregating Bandwidth

You have to configure Multilink PPP with your ISP. You can bundle them into a single logical pipe and load-share between these links.

MLPPP is supported on low-end cisco routers too. Just see if you are able to get the command "interface multlink 1" on the configuration prompt.

let us know your IOS version too..
