PowerLink Strengths

1.WAN Link Aggregation and Load Balancing

Ecessa customer CORE Health Networks uses PowerLink as a WAN aggregator and load balancer. Their primary fiber line and secondary broadband line are aggregated by their PowerLink unit, which ensures they have optimal bandwidth for both uploads and downloads.

CORE Health Networks uses PowerLink for an active failover system, meaning both links are in continual use and require no intervention to reroute traffic if one link goes down. They also have redundant hardware in place so that if equipment attached to the primary Ecessa unit fails, a second Ecessa unit connected to other redundant equipment automatically takes over. In this configuration, IT Director Chad Scott says, “We won’t have any downtime for our customers.”

How Does PowerLink Work?

PowerLink creates multi-homed networks of up to 25 WAN links to eliminate link congestion, guarantee full connectivity and continuous service. PowerLink uses intelligent outbound traffic management to load balance across all WAN links, and uses DNS to load balance inbound services. As your network bandwidth needs grow, PowerLink makes it easy to add more WAN links.
