A method and system of combining a plurality of parallel communication channels to emulate a single high-bandwidth communication channel. A continuous stream of packets are grouped as traffic aggregates and assigned to queues associated with the plurality of parallel communication channels. The assignment and reassignment of traffic aggregates to the queues is performed dynamically based on measuring the queue load ratios associated with the lengths of the queues for each of the parallel communication channels. Grouping of existing and future packets as traffic aggregates is based on common attributes shared by the packets such as common source and destination IP addresses.
