channel bonding

Increasing transmission speed by spreading the data over two or more lines. Bonded analog modems use two analog telephone lines to double transmission capacity, splitting data into two streams of 56 Kbps. In addition, if one modem fails, the transmission continues with the other modem. This "dual analog" method, also known as "modem bonding," uses the Multilink PPP protocol and must be supported by the ISP.

ISDN modems use channel bonding to split the data stream into two 64 Kbps channels, which use both lines in an ISDN BRI service (see ISDN). The DOCSIS 3.0 standard for cable modems supports a minimum of four cable channels bonded together to greatly increase subscribers' upstream and downstream speeds. See modem teaming.

But with the new AC1600 WiFi Cable Modem Router, you have 16x4 channel bonding, which means it supports 16 downstream bonded channels simultaneously.
In the WLAN settings on all APs, IEEE802.1 In is used and an adjacent channel is bonded (i.e., 40 MHz channel bonding is activated).
Taking into acount both of the transmission rate of PU packets as well as the throughput of SU packets, we propose a novel spectrum allocation strategy by combining the channel bonding mechanism for PUs with the channel reservation mechanism for SUs.
However, when you move off fixed QoS connections onto Wi-Fi and mobile connections, channel bonding is prone to variation.
Montreal, Dec 20, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Averna, an industry-leading developer of test solutions and services for communications and electronics device-makers worldwide, announces a new software release for the DP-360 DOCSIS Protocol Analyzer, featuring support for 16x4 channel bonding.
It uses channel bonding, where two 20 MHz channels of legacy 802.11 can be combined to a single 40 MHz channel, thus increasing the PHY data rate.
