Load Balancing

Advanced algorithm for fast Internet.

Load balancing is the process of distributing network traffic across multiple SIM cards. This ensures no single SIM card bears too much demand. By spreading the work evenly, load balancing improves application responsiveness. This results in speeding up performance and better user experience in general.

Load Balancing vs Network Bonding

Several router manufacturers have invested in Network Bonding solution. Network Bonding solutions take individual SIM card connections and combine them to form a single aggregated connection. Based on our experiences with mobile connections on vessels, we at Locomarine decided for Load Balancing as a better solution. The reason is simple: Network Bonding is only as good as the worst performing SIM card. For example, if you have four SIM cards, three running a 4G service and one running a 3G service, the Network Bonding will run at the speed of the 3G service. And that situation is quite common, especially with SIM cards from several providers and vessels roaming in different countries.
