Thread: HSDPA array

  1. #1

    Default HSDPA array

    Hi Guys

    Conceptually I am thinking of putting together the following to increase the bandwidth that I get into my network. I.e I would like to connect lets say 3 modems each running 2,4Mb/s into the network - so that the network has a total speed of 7,2 MB/Sec

    My thinking has been along these lines... 3 proxy servers each running a modem connected . These 3 servers in turn connected to a dhcp server that acts as a gateway... into the network at 1000mb/s - serving multiple (3 wireless) routers .....

    What do you guys think can be done ? or not.... any ideas? The crux of the the problem is of course splitting the packets amongst multiple modems... ala torrent ?

    Default Cell Tower Breathing

    Before going ahead with this, I suggest that you look into the effects of Cell Tower Breathing.

    The More Celle Tower connections, the more a cell site will balance the load.

    Do not expect to get a full 7,2 MB/Sec

    Thanks Toby

    I am aware of that , I seem to be in a low usage area - on a farm - not many other users on the 3G net with my current two modems connected to different machines I get good downloads on both - that is on the same provider of course it can now also be split with a second provider... but you are right the moment there are to many users - it drops...

    conceptually it seems like a good plan ... but oi to implement seems a bit more difficult!

    i've also had some thinking about that, using multiple B970 modems to increase speed.
    in order to address the cell breathing, use a MTN, VC, and Telkom simcard all good 3G speeds. then u sommer have backup if one network goes bad
    haven't had a chance to test it in reality tho.
    how do they 'bond' the multiple ADSL lines? wouldnt this work on similar fashion?

    at moment using multiple modems to get faster speed for all users..... some users on this modem, some on that one, so speed faster for all.... but this not really the same solution
    Bonding several modem should theoretically give grooovy speeds if there are few users
