For an enterprise that has branch offices connecting to the headquarters, Virtual Leased Line (VLL) powered by Truffle Broadband Bonding Network Appliances provides a unique WAN bonding value proposition. With Truffle network appliances at the branch offices and at the headquarter, the branch offices will be able to bond together their various Internet access lines to create a virtual secure, fast and reliable IP pipe to and from their headquarters, including VPN bonding. VLL is an ideal high performance alternative to MPLS and is highly cost effective. VLL can also be utilized to offload public Internet traffic off of MPLS when deployed along side with MPLS - generating huge savings in MPLS bandwidth cost. VLL is a very cost effective MPLS alternative.
Additionally, if the branch office Internet traffic is funneled through the headquarter (such as through a VPN), then the branch office will enjoy VPN bonding and the bonded speeds not only for the point-to-point connection to the headquarter, but also for the traffic to/from the public Internet. Optionally, the remote office public Internet traffic can be offloaded and bonded locally.

Internet Data Centers
For Internet Data Centers that would like to provide differentiated services to their clients, VLL provides a unique opportunity. SMBs and enterprises can connect to their offsite Internet Data Centers via the Virtualized Leased Line that is powered by the Truffle broadband bonding network appliances that are installed at the customer location and at the Internet Data center for a low latency network and data center redundancy. VLL enables the SMBs and enterprises to bond all of their available Internet access lines and leverage this cost effective, fast, secure pipe with low latency network for all of their communications to Internet data center. The Data Center redundancy and therefore the Data Center reliability can be maximized.
Since VLL is capable of bonding different types of Internet access technologies from different ISPs, the Internet data centers can now provide ISP diversity to their customer base at the access end on top of the backhaul diversity that they already provide. Their customers can simply get any type of Internet connection and bond them to access their data center.
In scenarios where the Internet traffic is funneled through the Internet data center, all the Internet traffic to/from the office will be able to leverage the bonded IP pipe speeds.

As news becomes more and more localized, there is an increasing demand to create just-in-time local news where it happens, when it happens. The legacy satellite and microwave based electronic news gathering (ENG) systems are too costly to capture the ever growing long tail local content.
Teleporter is a modern live video delivery technology that utilizes cellular wireless modems to transport video live from remote locations. The video quality is high and is transmitted with low latency as multiple cellular cards are bonded together for a faster and more reliable connectivity. This means a one-man news crew can do the job of an electronic news gathering (ENG) truck. This will enable all of the photographers and reporters to reach to the news sites quickly and be the first to break the story.
Teleporter transports an analog video/audio signal from a remote location to a headquarter location for live video streaming applications. Videographers can simply plug in the analog or digital video/audio feed from the video camera to the industry standard connectors of the Teleporter case, add the USB modem cellular aircards and start video delivery to the Teleporter receiver at the headquarter location which provide analog or digital video/audio output.
Schools & Nonprofit Organizations
Subscribing to a fast backhaul service from an ISP is usually not cost effective. A better value for money paid per bits/sec can be achieved by utilizing several cost effective broadband connections and aggregating them via Truffle Broadband Bonding Network Appliance furthermore intelligently managing the bandwidth via traffic shaping. Truffle is an ideal traffic shaping router for all your wan traffic shaping requirements. In some rural areas, the desired speeds can only be achieved by aggregating several broadband lines combined with network traffic shaping and Truffle is the perfect network appliance to achieve this in a cost effective manner.

Hotels & Apartments
Truffle Broadband Bonding Network Appliances provide an optimum solution for providing super fast hotel Internet services and bandwidth management. The property owner/manager can grow the Internet access line serving the apartment as their subscriber base grows, as opposed to paying for unnecessary high fees for a high-end Internet access line during low subscription penetration. As the Internet access speed requirements gets higher, additional broadband lines can be added to increase the speed of the Internet access feeding the property. Internet traffic management is a breeze with Truffle where both bandwidth management on a user level or traffic type can be accomplished. Additionally, the various broadband connections that are fed into Truffle create a reliable Internet connection for the apartment since a failure in any one of the links will not bring down the Internet connectivity of the apartment. Truffle is ideal for bandwidth management for hotel internet services. You can download an MDU application and ROI analysis white-paper by clicking here.
LECs & ISPs
Mushroom Broadband Bonding services enable ISPs and LECs to provide unique and cost effective Internet solutions to their customers.
Mushroom’s Broadband Bonding Service architecture enable service providers to bond various Internet access lines without any upgrade in their core-network. Mushroom unique and patent pending one-sided bonding technology enables service providers with the most cost effective IP transport to provide unique solutions.
Unlike conventional bonding techniques, in Broadband Bonding(TM) the Broadband Bonding Network Appliance (CPE) resides only at the customer premises and no other equipment or software is necessary in the central office. Ports on DSLAM devices do not need to be statically pre-allocated for bonded service. Having no CAPEX requirements for equipment installations enables the service provider to start offering the solution without a costly roll-out,. This results in lower cost structure to provide the bonded service. Mushroom’s Broadband Bonding Service architecture is ideal for providing metro-ethernet like services.
