Re: [Cable] Channel bonding increase on Ottawa St-Laurent POI
said by GoTeksavvy :That depends on how heavily loaded the node is.
You won't see a performance increase with 8 channels vs 4.
If you have a set of 100 subscribers sharing quad-QAM set A and another group sharing set B, one set may get congested while the other isn't but by going 8-channels, the slack from one becomes available to the other and congestion becomes less frequent for the same total load.
While more bonding may enable faster tiers (that almost nobody needs), it also makes existing tiers more potentially much more efficient.
