Multilink bundles are groupings of bandwidth channels that are controlled by the issue of pre-established commands. The channels involved can include both data and video, and will respond to commands that are arranged into a sequential fashion that is both logical and progressive in nature. A multilink bundle is essential for the operation of any Internet Service Provider or ISP. In order to manage the bandwidth, any ISP can add or remove a given multilink bundle when another provider requests that the action be taken.

The method of creating a multilink bundle has in times past been used to help expedite the performance of connectivity on a dial up connection. Essentially, the multilink bundle may include the utilization of two 64kbps channels to function in the same manner as a single 128kpbs connection. This type of arrangement allowed the Internet Service Provider to offer an enhanced connection option to end users, usually at an small additional fee. Data and video are compartmentalized by the provider, sent in packets to the end user connection, and reassembled at the user end. For the dial up end user, the effect is a seamless increased speed browsing around the Internet.

The general process associated with a multilink bundle can also be applied in other network situations that make use of bandwidth. Essentially, when there is a need to manage the resources that will travel through a given bandwidth channel; using multiple links to route data can help to improve the overall efficiency of the network. The end result is faster delivery of data to a point of termination, which in turn can increase the overall efficiency of those who make use of the network.

While Internet service providers offer several high-speed connection options today, many still employ the use of a multilink bundle strategy to offer dial up customers the option of a basic and enhanced service delivery. Generally, the enhanced service is offered at a rate that is slightly higher than the charge for the basic service. Since the enhanced service provided by the use of a multilink bundle requires no additional equipment on the part of the subscriber, this option is often attractive to persons who do not have access to DSL and other high-speed options.
