Re: SERIAL TO MULTILINK

to multilink serial links is to increase the bandwidth by enabling multiple serial links to be aggregated into a single bundle of bandwidth.

ie: two T1s bundled would provide ~3mb bandwidth.

multilink connections are used on point-to-point interfaces.

load balancing can also be a benefit of a multilink bundle.

Re: SERIAL TO MULTILINK
