2 wireless internet connections and 1 wireless router

Happy Friday all.

I've done some searching without a concrete answer. Here it is for the experts. I have a remote office with MiFi wireless internet access through Verizon. Is there a way to add a second wireless MiFi internet connection and attach both to a wireless router with the end result being 1 "pipe" for the 4-5 users in this remote office?

Quick update for all.

CradlePoint offers 2 devices: the MBR1200B (1 card and 2 usb) and the MBR1400 (2 cards and 3 usb) with a respective cost of $250 and $380.

Mushroom Networks offers the Truffle and Portabella (and others but those are the 2 I've considered) with a respective cost of $5000 and $3200. Their products are commercial grade.

If I understand correctly, VPN is possible but will run over 1 usb modem for CradlePoint and Mushroom Networks. Although Mushroom offers a service, at an additional cost, to pipe VPN over aggregated connections.

Simply because of the initial cost, I'll test the CradlePoint MBR1200B next week with 2 Verizon 4G usb modems.
That all depends on your router, there are routers out there that support either/both multiple internet connections for load balancing or failover, it all depends on your router/fw. Meraki or Aruba are a couple that come to mind that have units that support multiple ISP's
take a look at open mesh you can connect them to multiple internet connects and still have them work as one seamless network

I'm working on those 3 suggestions with out success. I haven't heard from Meraki yet but OpenMesh doesn't seem to have a device that'll aggregate 2 wireless connections into 1 and the same seems to be true of Aruba. :( I'm open to any other ideas.

If 2 mifi's were usb devices, is it more likely to find an aggregate device?

Do you know of these aggregate products from www.pepwave.com and www.mushroomnetworks.com? Ever heard of them?

Meraki apparently doesn't have a solution. OpenMesh doesn't seem to have a solution. I will be talking more with Aruba today.

These options fit.
