Wireless redundate link with bonding

I want to test a point to point link with two frequencies.
This by bonding. Does anyone know what I would use bonding best? It is intended as the 5 GHz. frequency connection is lost the 2.4 GHz. the connection would take or maintain. A redundant link.
Anyone have an idea what kind of bonding should I use?
Thanks

@Spacex i know that product and appreciate that.
But i will a configuration with bonding and with sxt.
Thanks fot your reply

have a look at https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Interface/Bonding, and especially enable link monitoring, probably arp base

@Sebastia

Ik denk dat de balance-xor Bonding de beste oplossing zal zijn aangezien deze de pakketten over eenzelfde verbinding stuurt totdat deze uitvalt en de ander het gaat overnemen.
I think that the active backup will be the best solution since it sends the packages over the same connection until it fails and the other one takes over.

Bonding Modes: balance-xor Bonding Packets destined for specific peers will Packets destined for specific peers will always be sent over the same interface always be sent over the same interface ✔ Works best in a "local" network Works best in a "local" network configuration configuration ✔ Switch ports need to be configured for Switch ports need to be configured for "etherchannel" or "trunking.

do you want an active-backup or active-active?
xor is the last one

An example, the 5 GHz. loses its connection through DFS.
The 2.4 GHz. connection must take over immediately.
That is why I would put the two interfaces in bonding.
Ether1 = 5 GHz. link
Ether2 = 2.4 GHz. link

hint balance -> balances ;-) over both links

if you want active passive that's a different mode
the "immediate" hand over (subsecond) you can have with active-backup, see viewtopic.php?t=150820#p743780

Looks more you Are searching for OSPF

that won't be immediate ;-)

I try it with active-backup.

OSPF is also an option but I still have to study it. I keep this in my mind and try this later, much later :)
Thanks for this exchange of views

Can also add a device each side of the wireless devices then use RSTP

@ CZFan Can you give me a example how to do that?
This seems interesting to try this out

will a wireless bridge pass the xSTP related frames?

Sorry, should have stated, I never tested it, just popped in my head when I read the post, the concept is: cant draw as nice as @sindy :-)
                             WL2---2GHz L2-----WL2
                            /                                       \
---RB1(With RSTP)                                         RB2(With RSTP)-----
                            \                                        /
                              WL1----5GHz L2-----WL1
RB1 & 2 as a switch, i.e. all ports bridged

To be honest, I dont know, never looked into it, according to Mikrotik, it seems possible, i.e. if bridged in Stations-WDS mode you can use RSTP, etc, so I suppose it will depend on how you did the wireless config
