If I understand correctly you want more speed than 1 Gbit between two devices.
I think it depends on the manufacturer if you can do this by "grouping" multiple links together. Cisco for example provides such a technology and calls it EtherChanne. You can combine up to 8 links this way for greater speed. Thats of course cost effective because its only a configuration thing on the switches. Don't know if its available for routers also.

Hope this help.

Also depends on what speeds the boxes can handle.... Just because you can channel together X number of ports does not mean that the box can actually switch or route at that speed....
