Sync Channels link with different bandwidth

Can 2 sync link be configured with different bandwidths ?.
For example a sync link of 25Gbps and another sync link at 10Gbps, or both should be links of the same bandwidth.

Best Regards

You'd better have them of the same bandwidth. Multiple sync links are utilized in a way similar to the Round Robin MPIO policy, thus you will most likely be using your faster adapter at the throughput that your slower NIC offers.
