The relentless pressure to reduce costs, increase network performance, improve productivity, and meet regulatory requirements and business continuity needs are a constant battle for the information technology and telecommunications groups of any organizations. With the Layer-2 link balancing technologies that have entered the market place in the past few years, these objectives now can be met and exceeded, while reducing the complexity of telecommunications infrastructures.
