What Does Channel Bonding Mean?
Channel bonding is a practice commonly used in IEEE 802.11 implementations in which two adjacent channels within a given frequency band are combined to increase throughput between two or more wireless devices.
Channel bonding is also known as Ethernet bonding, but it is used heavily in Wi-Fi implementations. It has become a very popular technique in the world of Wi-Fi because its increased throughput provides for more functionality within Wi-Fi deployments.
Channel bonding is also known as NIC bonding.
