Technology - Broadband Bonding™

Broadband Bonding™ is a Mushroom Networks patented technology that enables aggregation/bonding of two or more Internet lines without any coordination or equipment from the Internet Service Providers. Companies can mix and match various WAN connections from any service provider and use Broadband Bonding to create an intelligent, self-healing Internet connectivity.

Historically, the only way to bond Internet lines, such as DSL, was through techniques at the physical layer that required special equipment at the central office of the telco. These technologies were not only very expensive because of the required forklift upgrade, but also limited to the bonding to WAN links from the same service provider serviced from the same central office. Broadband Bonding on the other hand, uses an overlay at a higher layer as opposed to the physical layer and therefore eliminates the need for the central office equipment and expands the bonding capability across different service providers. As an example, one can bond a DSL line, a fiber line and a cable modem from different service providers.

Since Broadband Bonding technology is agnostic to the WAN connection type and works anywhere with any ISP worldwide, it enables organizations to build their own WAN connections from any combination of Internet service providers they prefer. Depending on the available services in a given geographic location, the IT manager can pick and choose the WAN services and use broadband bonding to intelligently combine those lines to create faster and more reliable Internet connections.

Mushroom Networks’ HTTP downlink bonding technology is another patented technology that has the ability to bond HTTP downlink traffic without requiring any other equipment or service. For any other type of traffic, a cloud based service (or a one-to-many controller) can be used to enable bonding for all traffic types.

Mushroom Networks’ bonding technology combined with the advanced traffic grooming and traffic management capabilities provides an ideal platform for managing WAN networks with ease.
