2 bonded HSIA on MX device

Hello, I have a situation where I need service for a short term.. about 3 months. I am looking to use 2 Internet access at about 50 MB each, into a MX to give me a combined BW of abut 100MB. Is this possible on the MX and do I need to have any special config on the MX?

Kind of a big deal

Re: 2 bonded HSIA on MX device

Hi @Joels2019 


you can utilise both WAN links on your mX for load balancing

Special config: tick box to enable load balancing to utilise both links

Thanks Inderdeep for the input. This should effectively give me the aggregate BW of both these accesses.
