Hot or cold data reservation
- Hot or cold redundancy with zero tap-changeover time in Failover Mode. For example: LTE channels can be hot redundant, which ensures no packet loss, even if the primary broadband connection is lost.
- Guaranteeing data integrity in Packet Cloning Mode by simultaneously transmitting the same packets over multiple channels.
- Increase aggregate throughput by using up to 255 different data channels (satellite, radio, fiber, broadband, DSL, 3G, LTE) in a unique Bandwidth Stack Mode.
MSTNT preserves the sequence of data packets in the communication channels by eliminating loss, minimizing jitter, reducing delay, filtering duplicate packets, zero switchover time to redundant channels and no reorder packets.
The figure depicts the transfer of data using the MSTNT summation method in comparison to alternative methods.
In contrast to existing tunnel-forming systems, MSTNT provides the possibility of combining several sub-channels in the summation of bandwidth mode and in the reservation mode (whether in hot or cold setting). This summation of bandwidth of channels guarantees preservation of the packets sequence – packets leave the tunnel in the same order that they enter it. MNTP can transparently sum the transport channels and protect the data packets as they are transmitted even over an unsecured network, with automatic filtering of routing instructions and Ethernet traffic transmission with arbitrary 802.1q tags and a maximum transmission unit size up to 8,192 bytes.
The figure shows the data transfer using the MSTNT summation method, showing that the new MSTNT summation method can continue to function despite any connection failure in any subchannel, with the summation covering all available subchannels.
Data integrity packet offset
Any subchannel (separately for tx and rx) can be defined as a Hot Backup slave.
In this case data packet transmitted through such subchannel will be cloned and simultaneously transmitted through Hot Backup slave subchannel.
The receiving side will process the first received packet. The other copies will be ignored.
This allows you to significantly improve the quality of communication: to eliminate losses, minimize the delay variation (Jitter).
