ISP Load Balancing – Multi WAN

Ya sometime we are looking for High speed . LTE ? DSL etc … each has technology has it own limitation . and sometime you would like to load balance your traffic between multiple ISP ! .

DSL good for gaming , but bandwidth  limitation ! . LTE might give you good bandwidth but with latency ( not suitable for gaming ).

what about if you would like doubling your bandwidth . ya might work

now there are many affordable multi wan or Gateway load balancing  routers . yes they become cheap and really provide advance features .

you can utilize those boxes to expand your bandwidth , or choose which apps/server utilize which ISP . the beauty also some provide you with statistics that if you run this app let say youtube it will be much faster in ISP 1 , more than ISP 2 . having latency monitor + bandwidth gauges

 

I would recommend peplink – nice product and it do the job . you can order it from amazon or any online shop . link here

 

if you want a simple and cost effective one . you could also consider TP-Link gateway LB . its available in Kuwait from Burhain Tech in Huawei .

Huawei B618 LTE-A Pro

bolt.pngHuawei released its new router which is cat11 . with download speed up to  600 MBit/s in the downlink and 50 MBit/s in the uplink.  4 × 4 MIMO  which is really interesting .

cat11 means triple aggregation . better than cat6 which is two ..

there is one catch here you need to watch your Operator does it support it or not . also if you have cat6 with lower speed don’t expect with cat11 you will get higher since the operator network might be congested .

so be careful from some operators saying getting this router you will get higher speed . don’t be foil for commercial stuff 🙂

 

Verify Your ISP Internet Speed

4gmark

For Most speedtest.net is the usual site to verify ISP/Telco speed. how accurate is it I’m not sure .but I’m sure of one thing . when you are running a speedtest you run it against your provider ! so in this case you measure the speed to your provider network ! not the external internet speed ! .

what is the catch . some providers give speedtest ( the local hosted one ) more priority so when you perform a test you will always get higher speed ! . but when trying to browse the internet you will feel it slow .

some providers throttle Torrent and other kind of apps which we can speak about later .

 

there is a new site that measure the speed and experience in different way which personally I like . they don’t download a file or do ping only . they perform multiple tests such as running youtube in different quality ( SD,HD) .  in addition they started to give ranking to providers in Kuwait for example

they are not the best but they are very cool . try them and tell me what do you think 🙂 . link below

also they have iPhone,andrio app

LTE Watch

There is a good site offer a great tool to manage your Huawei Router . it is usually used to troubleshoot signal related such as RSSI etc . but the beauty of this tool is the following .

ability to change Freq yes . you can force your Huawei Router to which Operator Freq it can connect to . such as 800Mhz , 1800Mhz , 2600Mhz .

sometime operator Freq is congested ( loaded ) . so you could play around to find a good freq to connect to .

don’t forget also you could force LTE-A if you prefer .

 

this is really a great tool and I advise any Tech person to give it a shot ..

 

one note , for Huawei Router it has special image so make sure you download the right tool for Huawei router .
