The widespread deployment of varying networking technologies, coupled with the exponential increase in end-user data demand, have all led to the proliferation of multi-homed or multi-interface enabled devices. To date, these interfaces are mainly utilized one at a time based on network availability, cost, and user-choice. Researchers have recently focused on leveraging these interfaces simultaneously by proposing solutions to aggregate their bandwidths in order to ultimately increase throughput and satisfy the end-user's growing demand on data. These solutions, however, have faced a steep deployment barrier due to various system design choices and heavy demand on energy.
