I have a branch office where we are unable to get high bandwidth or reliable lines. We are forced to use DSL or WiMax. Our company model is to use a Cisco VPN device (800 router or ASA 5505) to link the office over a single line. I would like to be able to increase the available bandwidth by aggregating 2 or more lines. The ASA 5505 can do failover use of a second WAN line, but not load balancing.
After speaking with someone from Fatpipe they seemed to be telling me that I could use their Xtreme aggregator with our Cisco VPN appliance seamlessly. Are they telling the truth? I am not a Cisco or VPN expert but how can the aggregator possible drive the VPN over 2 separate lines? Would this not require another of their devices on the other end?
Any advice on whether it is possible to aggregate in FRONT of a VPN Appliance would be helpful. Also confirming that using an aggregator with built in ipSec is the only option would be helpful. The reason for trying to find a seamless solution is that our corporate security setup is not that flexible and the troubles in my region are fairly unique.
