Project – Internet load balancing solution

Networking requirement

An enterprise has 3 ADSL internet connections. It is required that all the three internet connections are equally load balanced by users in the organization. It should also be possible to prioritize any specific internet link. Identify an appropriate solution.


On a typical network, when there are three internet connections, the path corresponding to the lowest metric value would be selected. Due to this, an internet bound packet would typically take the link with the lowest metric value. Although the link might be a high speed link, the effective speed which the users achieve would be slow since all internet bound packets would take the specific link. The available three internet connections available for the enterprise are not used effectively in this scenario.

To resolve this issue, the enterprise can buy an internet load balancing appliance and setup on the network. The appliance would perform load balancing on all the links and route internet bound packets accordingly. This would help the enterprise to achieve better performance for internet access for users on the network. When the appliance is setup, all the three internet links are used effectively by the users in the enterprise.

PEPLINK is a vendor which manufactures Internet Load balancing appliance. The appliance has multiple WAN interfaces which can be used for connecting different internet links. The details of the product can be found in the below link.
