Broadband Bonding & SD-WAN Solutions for Enhanced Education Connectivity

Educational providers and institutions require high-performance Internet connectivity to provide reliable access for teachers, classrooms, buildings, small campuses, and major universities. Educators can now leverage SD-WAN with broadband bonding to create a fast, reliable, and cost-effective Internet solution by aggregating various wired or wireless WAN connections.


Educators face numerous challenges when it comes to Internet connectivity. Critical Internet applications powered by private, public, and hybrid clouds benefit from high-performance Internet. Real-time applications such as VoIP, video conferencing, and UC (Unified Communications) platforms rely on networks that can adapt dynamically to problems and shield end-user applications from disruptions. Finding a single service with the required SLAs (Service Level Agreements) and QoS (Quality of Service) is nearly impossible and often not cost-effective. The scarcity of IT personnel combined with heavy bandwidth demands presents another challenge for schools. The WAN design needs to be automated and set on autopilot for both rollout/installation and ongoing operations.

Zero-Touch Configuration for Seamless Deployment

SD-WAN virtual or physical appliances are ideal for taking over network management burdens for educators, from small early education to universities and research institutes. Zero-touch installation enables drop shipments to locations, allowing them to connect instantly and seamlessly while optimizing critical Internet applications.

Optimized Distance Learning Experience

With SD-WAN and Broadband Bonding, application-aware tunnels connect educators to the Internet via self-healing tunnels. These intelligent tunnels automatically recognize distance learning applications, Video Teleconferencing, VoIP, and Unified Communication (UCaaS), optimizing traffic flows for flawless remote learning sessions without human intervention.

Centralized Monitoring for Efficient Management

The optional Monitoring Portal provides a single-pane dashboard for all registered devices and enables single-click remote access to each device when needed. Various telemetry and network statistics are stored in the Monitoring Portal, giving IT managers a comprehensive and actionable view of their network.


Many computer networks in the education industry lack the requisite bandwidth or personnel to smoothly handle modern distance learning tools and applications. Older networks and limited budgets often result in sub-par performance for critical learning applications, including the Google suite of tools (Classroom, Meet, Hangouts, Forms), Zoom, GoToMeeting, as well as general video teleconferencing, streaming, remote desktop access, or screen sharing.

When application uptime is crucial for teachers to reach their students effectively, the best-of-breed SD-WAN and broadband bonding solutions from Mushroom Networks provide the ideal choice for optimizing remote learning experiences


“It worked perfectly, right out of the box. I watched the bandwidth status during the event and monitored our traffic and usage and we had zero downtime and as such, no chances of any critical data being lost.”

“We really haven’t calculated the exact dollar value of the increased up-time of our network, but given how many blood sample tests we run every single day coming from all over the nation, the value has been priceless.”
