Mushroom Networks Launches New Generation of Broadband Bonding™ Solutions That Augments WAN Optimization

Updated Truffle Bonds Several Broadband Lines of Any Type Into a Single High-Speed Connection Either as a Standalone Network Device or in Conjunction With Any Caching/Compression Based WAN Optimization Solution

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - Mushroom Networks, Inc., the innovator of Broadband Bonding technology, today announced support for advanced dynamic QoS, traffic monitoring and traffic shaping features in the newly updated Truffle product line for businesses ranging from home offices to multi-national corporations. The new Truffle line delivers inexpensive high-speed Internet service based on need by bonding as few as two or as many as 12 broadband connections of any type (DSL, cable, wireless, T1, E1, MPLS) into a single connection. In addition to updating both hardware and firmware, Truffle now incorporates dynamic QoS and if desired, can integrate seamlessly with leading off-the-shelf WAN optimization solutions for best possible end-user experience.

Truffle is an Ethernet-based turn-key solution that easily installs between the broadband modems and the local network at the customer's premises without requiring any configuration changes to the existing network or coordination with the ISP. These unique capabilities give businesses the ability to mix and match various services from multiple broadband providers delivering built-in redundancy. If one or more of the links in the bonded pipe fail or is degraded, the traffic will continue to be transmitted transparently across the remaining links without any interruptions resulting in maximum network up time. When peered over the Internet with another Truffle device such as connecting the main headquarters with multiple branch or home offices, both the download and upload capacity is aggregated solving a major industry pain point -- slow uplink speeds for Virtual Private Network (VPN) traffic.

"A key expense for businesses of any size is the monthly broadband bill especially if companies use traditional services such as the archaic yet still costly T1 line to connect branch offices and run daily operations," said Dr. Cahit Akin, co-founder and CEO of Mushroom Networks. "Our Broadband Bonding technology offers a way to cut monthly broadband bills by up to seventy percent by fusing together inexpensive cable or DSL connections for much faster service. With the new Truffle, we now have the ability to bond traffic from WAN Optimization appliances as well as accelerate traffic that cannot be cached or compressed."

In addition to the various Truffle models supporting any size business, new features include advanced QoS algorithms and application filtering that intelligently prioritizes and manages traffic, improving inbound real-time traffic latency metrics for applications such as voice, streaming, and video conferencing. Support for off-the-shelf WAN optimization solutions allows traffic compression and caching appliances to run alongside and in conjunction with Truffle for added speed and reliability that broadband bonding provides.

"When you can decrease the bits you need to transmit via compression and caching, it is very effective for running some types of applications more efficiently. When you combine that with increased bandwidth, acceleration and reliability by bonding together several broadband links, you are bringing together the best of both worlds," added Akin.

Truffle is available now and comes with optional stateful firewall, port-forwarding, static IP, dynamic IP, PPPoE, DHCP, DMZ, UPnP, Dynamic DNS and supports bonding of any type of traffic including VPN. For additional information on pricing and leasing programs visit
