I am not a Network-Engineer nor a Skype-Evangelist
So my knowledge is somewhat limited
But this is how I understand the "Seamless Failover" topic.
First of all, Skype doens't work like ICMP(Ping)
A lost Ping does't directly translate into an interrupted Skype-Call or bad voice quality
Latency, Network jitter, Packet loss and co. are usually more important
Back to the Failover topic,
A seamless Failover without any "Ping" loss isn't always easy or even possible...
If both WAN1 and WAN2 are functional and you manually activate the failover ...
it is possible, but not guaranteed, to "switch" without any PING loss..(just like in the Video)
In the other hand, an automaticaly failover during a fault to WAN1 is more complicated
Because the Router itself needs to check if WAN1 is still "online and running" and failover to WAN2
During this time, some Ping-Packets are still routed to the faulty WAN and lost !
