Quantum Spark 1600 Zone based Routing

Hi Checkmates 

I have 3 WAN links A,B & C so what I'm looking to do is keep WAN A & B in a single network group or Zone and route all traffic through them and if incase a link or both WAN links goes down failover happens to WAN C or load shares with the available link , is this possible in R80 or R81 embedded Gaia locally managed SMB 1600 appliance ?

You can set a weight when in load-sharing mode.

Additionally you can also bond interfaces, what type of links/interfaces are they?

Will likely depend on the link type... per the admin guide:

Link aggregation (Bond) - Create a link between two or more interfaces. This improves performance and redundancy by increasing the network throughput and bandwidth. A WAN or LAN bond can act like a regular internet connection in the cluster flow. A WAN bond in a cluster can be a monitoring interface.

Further granularity may be possible pending the future release of SD-WAN, if you have specific requirements I suggest discussing them with your local Check Point SE who can raise any applicable RFEs that might be needed.

yes I'm able to set weight for load sharing but my doubt was when is keep the Load sharing mode instead of HA mode all the 3 links are sharing the load that why I want to zone/group WAN A & B together so that I can keep them as active link and keep WAN C as failover link.

Is it possible to Bond WAN interfaces ?  on WAN port I have ISP A and DMZ port I have ISP B I can bond them ?

Ok I will check this out and update the result but we can't group or zone the WAN interfaces together and create policies with them.
