Aggregation of uplinks and downlinks (Bonding multiple cellular networks or dongles)
The first and the foremost benefit to customers is that ZifiLink aggregates the uplink and downlink bandwidths of multiple cellular networks to provide a combined bandwidth of them all.
In a scenario where 2G is better or 3G is better or just 4G is available, ZifiLink will not just adapt to the available capacity for each cellular network, but also combine the available capacities and lets you reap the benefit of the best possible aggregation.
Aggregation or bonding happens in both ways – uplink and downlink and provides fast connections in both ways.

ZifiLink can latch onto whatever signal is available on a dongle/ cellular network – it could be 2G, 3G or 4G. The best part being its ability to bond the available networks.
Support for a wide array of dongles/ data cards/ cellular networks

Automatic failover and Load balancing
The technology in ZifiLink takes care of automatic failover which means that if a link fails, it is detected automatically and any outstanding data is immediately retransmitted on the other available links. After this, the failed link is taken out of the available data communication paths. And if a failed link comes online, it is automatically added back to the available set of communication paths.
Automatic load balancing
In case 3 or 8 dongles are plugged into ZifiLink and the data transmission is lesser than the available bandwidth. Then not every data path is loaded fully or utilized fully. As the data consumption increases, the load on the data paths increase. This provides automatic load balancing or scaling.
Also, dongles can be inserted or removed at runtime which again allows for automatic addition or deletion of data transmission paths. ZifiLink will automatically detect and include/ exclude data transmission paths.
Local support in India
