Title: Communication link allocation based on dynamic trend analysis

Abstract: A method and/or apparatus is provided for performing traffic allocation based on dynamic trend analysis of communication links between two devices. Devices monitor the performance of their available communication links to determine which communication link is best to receive transmissions on. A device selects the best communication link on which to receive from another device and informs that other device to use that communication link when transmitting to it. Link information is obtained from both the transmitting device and receiving device to perform traffic allocation for communications between the two devices. This method may be performed by a low-level communication module transparent to applications and/or network transmission protocols.
