Speedfusion – WAN Smoothing
Packet loss can strike at the most important moments.
- During a video conference with a customer, lag can make conversation painful as both parties are off-sync by seconds.
- During a live broadcast, your camera crew’s cellular connectivity can break, making you lose precious seconds of coverage.
The result: frustration and missed opportunities.
To combat packet loss, Peplink have developed its SpeedFusion technology to deliver: WAN Smoothing.
Peplink WAN Smoothing
Using intelligent algorithms, the sending Peplink device builds and delivers special packets. Armed with these special packets, the receiving Peplink device can then reconstruct the lost packets to ensure that communications remains consistent.
At the same time, WAN Smoothing will attempt to assign traffic to the WAN connection with the lowest latency. Thus, the latency of the SpeedFusion tunnel becomes the latency of the most responsive WAN connection.
WAN Smoothing consumes more bandwidth than Speedfusion Bonding, but increases connection consistency. Use it when you need consistent delivery of time-sensitive traffic.
Ability to adjust Smoothing
Flexibility to adjust the amount of extra bandwidth to use for improving your connection consistency, striking the perfect balance between fast uploads and smooth streaming.
Smooth based on WAN Priority
Determine the priority of each WAN connection in the SpeedFusion Tunnel. This enables you to dedicate specific links (such as cellular) for backup.
