"increase pipe" = port trunking/etherchannel/port bonding whatever your 
supplier calls it. just use 2 or 4 ports instead of just one.

ieee 802.3ad/lacp/link aggregation, etc.... all the same stuff. ;)

provided you have another interface on/for your router ofcourse (your 
switch probably has plenty ;)

also an option (for cisco)...

int gix/x/x
max-reserved-bandwidth 1

(i'd say, 1% of 10ge should about cover all the needs for inband layer-2 
related stuff as a few kbit/s already should suffice ;)

1% being the minimum you can set this to.
