STM-1 link Bundles

‎01-07-2014 11:44 PM

Hi,

 

I have a M320 router and want to connect two POPs with 2XSTM-1 link.

 

I want to aggregate 2 X STM-1 links as one and I think Multilink-PPP is the best choice.  Am I right?

 

The PICs on my hand are quite OLD (OC-3 SONET SMF-IF & STM-1/OC-3 SONET SMF-IF). 

 

Could you tell me can I configure Mulitlink-PPP with the existing hardware? Or I have to purchase a new service PIC for the Multilink-PPP configuration?

 

Regards,

Jacky

Hi Krasi,

 

Thanks for your helpful information. The document said, it is not a public standard.  If remote-end is a Cisco device, the SONET/SDH aggregation will not work?

Correct.

Then why not just load balance per packet over both interfaces?
