Traffic load balancing using multiple modems

I have a high datarate/TCP session requirements in one of my site and we would like to install 4 iDirect modems connected to a ME3400 switch at the remote end.

What would be the best way to perform the load balancing so that the total traffic / TCP sessions are equally balanced over these 4 iDirect WAN circuits?

At the remote end, we have /24 subnet which will be used by the customer. Is it possible to have that same /24 subnet added as a static route to all of these 4 modems? If yes, then how the iDirect hub will perform the path selection and load balancing?

Please share your thoughts...

you can use cisco routers to perform policy-based routing or any L3 load balancers.
