Broadband Bonding & SD-WAN Solutions for Government and DOD

Government and DOD rely on high-performance Internet connectivity for a wide range of applications. From large government office buildings to military bases to remote, secret locations, the government and DOD can now leverage SD-WAN to support their mission-critical applications. Mobile, temporary, or remote locations can have instant access to high-reliability, high-performance Internet connectivity by broadband bonding of 3G,4G, LTE, 5G and Satellite links.

Government and DOD Networking Needs

The networking needs of the government and the DOD are as varied as the services they provide and the locations they support. Military and government use cases run the gamut from providing rapid Internet connectivity for temporary locations to ensuring VoIP, video conferencing, and unified communications all perform reliably regardless of problems in the underlying transport. These real-time applications all rely on a network that can provide state-of-the-art security, adapt dynamically to network problems instantly and can shield network problems from the end-user user.

Specialty applications such as signaling between assets for reconnaissance or weaponry systems or other mission-critical data can be transmitted over highly redundant SD-WAN tunnels to maximize application reliability.

Application Optimizations

With Broadband Bonding, application-aware tunnels connect government branch offices, military bases, and other assets to each other or to any required Internet resource, including public or private Clouds. These intelligent tunnels automatically recognize the applications via the built-in layer 7 filters extendable to custom application types to optimize the traffic flows with respect to the parameters that matter most for that specific application.

Zero-Touch Configuration

SD-WAN virtual or physical appliances are ideal for taking over the burden of network management for government or DOD locations. Zero-touch installation enables drop shipments to fixed locations, temporary facilities, and remote field sites and allows them to connect seamlessly to the Internet ensuring rapid rollout and successful deployment.

Centralized Monitoring

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

SD-WAN is a Cost-Effective Replacement/Augmentation for MPLS Networks

Historically, MPLS has been the only viable option to connect geographically distributed offices with low latency Internet connectivity. However, the high cost of MPLS bandwidth compared to broadband Internet such as DSL, cable, fiber, and even satellite makes SD-WAN a better alternative. For gradual migrations, MPLS augmentation with SD-WAN offers better value compared to expensive MPLS upgrades.

Legacy MPLS networks cannot route Internet traffic locally, are prone to single point of failures due to usually only having a single provider, and tend to have long lead times for upgrades or new service. SD-WAN with broadband bonding solves all of these problems and much more. SD-WAN provides for agile traffic management, boosted uptime reliability in the high 9s, rapid rollout and deployment, and cost-effective solutions for augmenting or replacing MPLS networks.

Testimonials & Awards

“I was able to bring up a network purely based on bonded LTE practically overnight with flawless performance for all of our Internet applications. Once I proved Mushroom Networks devices can handle even the most challenging networks, I decided to upgrade my other locations to Mushroom as well, where we use wired as well as wireless. Mushroom is very easy to install, flexible and scalable.”
