An architecture for streaming data from a sending endpoint to a receiving endpoint which are connected to each other by multiple networks is provided. Each of the sending endpoint and the receiving endpoint has multiple physical interfaces each for interfacing to a respective one of the multiple networks. The architecture is implemented on both of the endpoints. The architecture includes a traffic monitor for gathering performance characteristics of each of the multiple physical interfaces, and a software library for controlling sending and receiving of the data stream between the endpoints. The traffic monitor and the software library communicate information to each other. The software library instantiates a plurality of bondable virtual interfaces for splitting the data stream into multiple data sub-streams and for combining the multiple data sub-streams into the data stream, and a data organizer for designating one of the plurality of bondable virtual interfaces.
