Combining 8 ISPs with a single mikrotik device

Combining 8 ISPs with a single mikrotik device

Hello all, this time, we would like to share our project of combining 8 ISPs with a single Mikrotik device. So, our client already subscribes to internet connections from 8 different ISPs, and want to use them to provide internet connections to his customers. The reasons are simple: For availability purposes. If one connection is down, the customer is still able to connect via other links (there are eight connections in total, you know that, right? :-p) To increase capacity and also sharing traffic load among the connections. These mean let say if each link has a 100 Mbps datarate, having 8 of them will result in 800 Mbps in total. Sounds good, right? so this is what we did: configure ONU modems to be in the bridge-mode. The upstream…

In this project¬†(click here for the detail), our client requests to combining 2 ISP with one mikrotik. This case is different from the previous one that was using BGP protocol and whole end devices are using public IP address. This project is challenging because both ISP gives Public IP address which is just enough for point-to-point connection only. End-devices (laptop, PC, etc) will use private IP address, where router will do NAT (Network Address Translation) on these private IP when they are going out to internet. Topology of the network can be seen at the picture above. So, the technical plan would be: (more…)
