Accelerating Site to Site Data Communications
ML-IP boosts performance and reliability
Customers with multi-site installations using a variety of wide area networks,
such as managed private IP services, Frame Relay (with IP access) or Public
Internet VPNs, can boost the performance and reliability of their network
by adding Multilink-IP (ML-IP) at each location requiring improved communications.
Use 2,3 or 4 broadband links concurrently between
ML-IP is a patent-pending protocol that allows an IP-capable WAN to use 2,
3 or 4 cost-effective xDSL connections (or traditional T-1/E-1 connections)
concurrently between branch offices and head office. It works transparently
with all xDSL modems, routers, firewalls and VPN gateways.
High availability by spreading links across multiple
ML-IP allows multiple broadband connections spanning different ISPs, improving
availability. Should an ISP fail, ML-IP falls back to its remaining broadband
connections. If there is a network wide carrier outage, ML-IP can fail over
to multiple PSTN or ISDN dial backup links. Most solutions that add high link
availability have extra broadband links sitting idle until there is an outage.
ML-IP uses the bandwidth of all working links all the time.
Operates across a variety of last mile connections
No longer will customers hit the T-1/E-1 bandwidth brick wall or have to
put up with s single xDSL connection because the jump to T-3/E-3 is not affordable
or available. ML-IP delivers speeds spanning T-1 up to fractional T-3 using
multiple low cost broadband or T-1/E-1 links. It requires no special support
by the carrier or ISP as it works site-to-site over IP. Your customer can
buy extra bandwidth when they need it and can have a variety of last mile
connections including T-1, G.Lite ADSL, G.SHDSL, G.DAMT full rate ADSL, cable,
etc. as ML-IP operates across any of these and more.
Improve bandwidth between up to 100 locations
ML-IP capable products from ePipe include the 2344 Multilink-IP gateway,
which is suited for branch offices and the Multilink-IP Concentrator software
for Linux, which is designed to operate on a server computer at the head office.
The Concentrator can terminate 10, 50 or 100 branch offices, each with up
to four broadband links.

- ML-IP Achieves Universal Broadband Access
Organizations with more than one office need to connect all their sites
into a single, homogeneous Wide Area Network (WAN). Integrating these disparate
services into a single corporate network is only one challenge. A single
network connection at any site leaves that site (and possibly the entire
network) vulnerable to a single point of failure. Furthermore, the bandwidth
provided by existing WAN solutions is inflexible and rarely matches an organizations
requirements and budget.

- Betta Stores Ltd
Betta Stores Limited (BSL) is an international group of owner-operated home
appliance stores, with several hundred stores in Australia and New Zealand.
For an organisation with stores spread over thousands of miles, instantaneous
access to information has become essential. However, BSL needed a group-wide
solution that was within the cost constraints of each of the stores, yet
met the Group's need for secure, reliable and responsive data connections.

a network of retirement villages and aged care facilities in Western Australia.
As with any organisation with multiple sites, RAAFA faced the challenge
of networking these sites together and distributing applications throughout
