Bandwidth Multiplier

By: Sree Kumar

You probably would love to have a T1 or T3 at home, but more often than not, it's hard to justify the luxury. While in some places residential DSL service has reached T1 speeds but with a cap on the Giga Bytes downloaded, in too many others - like mine - residential Cable modem, ADSL and even fixed wireless services offer less-than-T1 speeds. In India providers of all three available broadband service types (cable, DSL, fixed) seem to have conspired to offer 256 Kbps as the fastest speed for unlimited download. We could rant about the price too, suffice to say we pay the same price for 256 Kbps for which a subscriber can get 1.5 Mbits ADSL in the U.S.

Ziksa Digital Services and company based in Bangalore, India introduces the Bandwidth Multiplier which makes T1 speeds and beyond available to anyone who can afford it - even if the broadband offerings are limited in speed. These routers have the ability to "join" two broadband links - xDSL, Cable modem, Fixed Wireless, you name it - into a single seamless "big data pipe" shared by all the machines in your LAN. The devices don't even have to be of the same type, as any pair of broadband connections with Ethernet (RJ45) connectivity can be used, and even mixed for additional safety against service outages from a particular (Telco or Cable) infrastructure.

While you won't be able to use the combined bandwidth with a single file download, any applications using multiple simultaneous connections will. The scenarios are many; you can use the combined bandwidth even if you have only one PC behind the router doing multiple downloads -when downloading a web page with graphics for example, when you use a "download accelerator", when you manually start downloading multiple files at once, or when you use a peer-to-peer file sharing program.

For small businesses and others who want Internet access redundancy and improved speed, this is the perfect product.
