MutiWan - ISP Link Redundancy – Failover
GajShield Multiwan or ISP Failover manages the traffic while providing valuable failover capabilities. That way if an internet link fails, GajShield senses the disturbance and redirects traffic to one of the working internet links.

For example for email the primary link could be ISP1, secondary could be ISP2 and third link could be ISP3, while for FTP the primary could be ISP2, secondary could ISP3 and third could be ISP1.
MultiWan - ISP Load Balancing
GajShield Multiwan or ISP Load Balancing weighted round robin method and hence it distributes the traffic across multiple internet link and provides the flexibility of utilizing the total bandwidth off all the internet links preventing bandwidth bottlenecks while minimizing the cost of inefficient bandwidth utilization.
