Broadband Bonding & SD-WAN Solutions for Hospitality Connectivity

Small boutique motels, larger hotel chains, resorts, and conference and convention centers leverage SD-WAN with broadband bonding to intelligently manage their bandwidth and provide problem-free, cost-effective Internet access to their guests and employees.


Businesses in the hospitality industry must provide high-performance Internet for their facilities or face angry customers and loss of business. Property owners and managers need to operate highly flexible networks that allow them to easily add bandwidth as needed, mix and match various ISPs for reliability, prioritize critical Internet traffic for performance, and easily monitor and manage the overall network and traffic. They need to allocate resources on a per-user basis and/or traffic type and have a robust network that seamlessly operates even if one of the WAN links goes down with minimal or no human intervention.

Many common Internet applications powered by private, public, and hybrid clouds also benefit from high-performance Internet. Real-time applications such as video streaming, VoIP, video conferencing, and Unified Communications (UC) platforms are nearly ubiquitous and fundamental for business travelers. These services significantly benefit from a network that can adapt dynamically to problems and shield end-user applications from disruptions.

Application Optimizations for Enhanced User Experience

With SD-WAN and Broadband Bonding, up to 16 WAN Internet connections from any ISP can be aggregated for high throughput. Combined with built-in layer-7 Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), advanced Quality of Service (QoS), and traffic shaping, applications are optimized for utmost end-user satisfaction.

Zero-Touch Configuration for Seamless Deployment

SD-WAN virtual or physical appliances are ideal for taking over the burden of network management for hospitality providers. Zero-touch installation enables drop shipments to locations and allows them to connect seamlessly to the Internet, corporate network, and/or data centers via self-healing tunnels.

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.


Hotels and resorts are expected to provide excellent Internet service for their guests that matches their reputation in how they treat their guests and employees. Downtime, brownouts, or any other type of QoS problems in network connectivity are not only unacceptable for business customers but are also increasingly unacceptable for guests in general. WiFi Internet connectivity has become ubiquitous in everyone’s daily lives, and guests expect flawless network performance when they are traveling.

Mushroom Networks SD-WAN appliances can support small boutique hotels with the entry-level Truffle appliance and can scale up to Truffle E and Truffle EX series with more WANs and increased capacity. Built-in features for segregating guest traffic from employee or corporate traffic using dynamic QoS and traffic shaping enable a flawless network experience for all users.


“I liked that Mushroom Networks’ Truffle wasn’t just a load balancer but bonded all the WAN’s bandwidth together. I evaluated other load balancers with the Truffle and decided that the Mushroom Network device was our best choice for increasing our bandwidth.”

“Just before Superstorm Sandy hit, Houlihan Lawrence had wrapped up a proof-of-concept plan for two of its branch offices. When the storm took down our MPLS network, Houlihan Lawrence immediately deployed Mushroom Networks’ Truffle appliances.”
