Dynamic Traffic Direction over Hybrid WANs 

Branch networks in a multi-office enterprise often use MPLS as a primary WAN link and additionally connect broadband link(s) as backup when needed. Q-Balancer solution eliminates this obsolete active/standby WAN configuration as the deployment might waste a great deal of bandwidth resources. 

>  Dynamic Path Selection
Q-Balancer has the ability to direct traffic over one path or the other depending on WAN conditions or traffic characteristics. One of its key features Dynamic Path Selection (DPS) enables enterprises to highly utilize all connected bandwidth at each location. With DPS network administrators can configure outbound policy to route different applications based on specific metrics that work best for each application. This makes better decision about how WAN links are used and which application goes out via which path.

DPS enables the simultaneous use of multiple WAN links and automatically fails over to the secondary connection in the event of a WAN outage or brownout. It allows packets to be directed to the optimal path or distributed across multiple paths. Business-critical traffic such as VoIP, VDI, and videoconferencing will always take the MPLS network, while the rest of traffic will be load balanced across broadband connections.
