Mushroom Networks, Inc. Unveils New Broadband Bonding(TM) Technology for the Enterprise and Service Provider Markets.
SAN DIEGO -- Mushroom Networks, Inc., the innovator of single-ended broadband bonding technology, today unveiled the TRUFFLE[TM] (BBNA6401) broadband bonding network appliance targeting the small and medium-sized businesses (SMB), enterprises, multi-tenant buildings, and broadband service provider markets. Developed to bridge the gap of limited bandwidth options available for expanding local networks, the TRUFFLE bonds together as many as six high-speed Internet connections forming a virtual single broadband pipe that is extremely reliable and efficient. In addition, any combination of access technologies including DSL, cable modem, T-1 circuits or fiber can be blended resulting in download speeds of up to 65Mbps.
TRUFFLE provides this high speed bonded link access to the Internet by optimizing the use of available connection resources without requiring coordination with the ISPs or any changes to the local network. Dissimilar types of broadband access can be combined in any manner resulting in greater connection speeds even for an individual file download and higher reliability due to the redundancy of the connected links. If one or more of the bonded links fails or is degraded, TRUFFLE transparently spreads the traffic across the remaining links in real-time without any interruptions. Connections can be scaled as needed without requiring the network to be taken off-line.
The Ethernet-based solution easily installs between the broadband modems and the local network at the customer's premises without requiring any configuration changes to the existing network. TRUFFLE includes an internal router and firewall capability that can be enabled by the user as needed. Other Internet services such as port-forwarding, static IP, dynamic IP, PPPoE, DHCP, DMZ, UPnP and Dynamic DNS are all supported by Mushroom Networks' TRUFFLE product.
"Our patent pending bonding technology allows local networks to mix and match various broadband access methods for higher throughput capacity and redundancy while scaling resources based on immediate needs," said Dr. Cahit Akin, co-founder and CEO of Mushroom Networks. "LEC's and Internet service providers can also capitalize by cost effectively bundling the reliability of T1 and speeds of DSL or cable together in a single service."
The TRUFFLE BBNA6401 is now shipping with a list price of $2,995. Mushroom Networks is also marketing to value added resellers, IT sales representatives, and broadband service providers who would like to offer broadband bonding capabilities to their customers.
