Hello, is there a way to split up a single stream using a Dual-Wan router (round-robin) with two internet connections (e.g cable and dsl) or even using a linux machine with 2 NICs and do Load Balancing and Failover sending a stream over to a Wowza server ?
Example. If one connection is up, it should work using that connection, if both connections are up, then it should balance out the upstream.
What is the method called and what are my options to do something like that ?
Usually when using a dual-homed or "rocketmodem" type Internet connection, each router can only handle one TCP connection. So if you have a 5mbit DSL and 10mbit Cable modem, you can download a file at either 5mbit/s or 10mbit/sec, but not at 15mbit/sec. You could use a download manager to open two tcp connections and download part of the file over each Internet connection, and thus utilize your full bandwidth.
But, I don't think there is way to split one TCP connection (a stream) over two routers. Unless you wrote some custom software to do that and then reconstructed the stream on the other end.
