OptiBond™ Technologies

How do you provide 100% resilient, instant connectivity with built in VPN's between remote sites and head offices or even mobile buses?

 

Connectivity wherever you need it...

Whether at your office, at a temporary or remote location, or out and about in a vehicle you need fast reliable access to the internet in order to get your job done. i-MO delivers instant, secure connectivity where traditional connections are absent, have failed or simply don't deliver performance and reliability you can count on.

 

i-MO OptiBond Technical Diagram

 

Bonds multiple connections:

i-MO allows you to combine or bond wired and wireless services as you need them. i-MO can bond up to three 3G / 4G connections (with support for up to six mobile data networks) plus as many as four broadband landline connections for unrivalled speed and uptime. Configure any of up to 10 Ethernet ports as WAN ports in order to add other bearers e.g. satellite.

Bonds intelligently:

The i-MO bonding algorithm automatically distributes traffic across available connections and manages these to achieve optimal performance, equalisation of data consumption, etc. i-MO units can be populated with up to six mobile data network SIMS with dynamic selection of the three best available 3G / 4G connections. Also offered is the facility for automatic failover between primary (e.g. DSL) and secondary (e.g. wireless) connections.

Bonds as you like it:

i-MO uses an end-to-end tunnelling protocol to aggregate bandwidth. Assembling and managing data across multiple bearers requires a suitable Appliance at either end of the link. With i-MO you have the option of using our proven vendor delivered Managed Service (no equipment required other than at the site where connectivity is required) or, alternatively, deploy our Virtual Concentrator in a maintained environment (e.g. your Data Centre) and deliver your own bonding services.

4G LTE compatibility built in:

Up to three latest-generation cellular modems can be embedded in the new i-MO Appliance. These support cellular mobile data networks which comply with 4G LTE, HSUPA, HSDPA, 3G, EDGE and GPRS standards.

OptiBond™ Key Features

Point of Sale / Retail

i-MO can provide highly resilient data connectivity so that you are never offline and unable to complete transactions. At fixed locations you can configure an ADSL or WAN circuit as the primary link and in the event of a failure our OptiRoute technology can seamlessly switch over to a backup 3G / 4G (LTE) connection.
