Abstract


Internet network is a means of infrastructure to support the learning and working process. Some internet network problems that often occur are internet connection is lost, the connection is slow, and the output does not match the bandwidth that is owned. This can be accommodated by using 2 (two) internet modem units from different ISP combined with the Load Balancing process. Load Balancing used to combine two internet modems so that one connection can become a backup connection if the main connection is lost. Nowadays Load Balancing has 4 (four) methods, they are Static Router with Address List, ECMP, PCC, and Nth. The problem is choosing the best method for Load Balancing. This research uses the PPDIOO network development method. From the results of tests conducted in this research indicate the balance of internet access and bandwidth performance owned by ISP1 and ISP2 after the Load Balancing process is carried out. From testing 4 (four) Load Balancing methods, the results show that the Nth method produces 79.2% bandwidth by testing for 40 (forty) days. The conclusion is that the Nth method is more effective to be applied on a LAN network compared to other Load Balancing methods because it can divide the internet connection path when browsing, downloading, and can do a failover. Expectations going forward after applying Load Balancing Nth method can improve internet performance that is used every day for learning and working activities in an organization.

 

Keywords: Load Balancing, Failover, Static Route with Address List, ECMP, PCC, Nth.
