Multipath communication with heterogeneous channels is very challenging. In this paper, we describe the combination of terrestrial and satellite internet access links. We review related concepts for such a setup (MPTCP, CMT-SCTP, MPQUIC, Layer 3 Bonding). We propose that dynamically switching a single flow among heterogeneous communication links is a simple and efficient scheduling strategy. Finally, architectures and protocols (MOBIKE, PMIPv6, LISP) are discussed regarding their eligibility for multipath communication and heterogeneous link bonding.
