Mushroom Networks and Aethra Telecommunications Partner to Provide SD-WAN for Service Providers and System Integrators

Mushroom Networks’ Next Generation Cognitive SD-WAN running on Aethra Telecom’s uCPE platform is now available in Europe, Central America and MENA regions.

SAN DIEGO – November 19, 2019 – Mushroom Networks, Inc., an innovator in next generation cognitive Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN), and the leading Italian telecom firm Aethra Telecommunications, today jointly announced their partnership to provide universal-CPE (uCPE) based SD-WAN solutions for service providers and system integrators worldwide.

The uCPE, with integrated fiber and copper ports, embedded VDSL2 modems and an embedded LTE modem, is capable of running VNFs (Virtual Network Functions) on VMs (Virtual Machines). When combined with Mushroom Networks’ SD-WAN software, this creates an ideal platform for service providers and integrators. The SD-WAN solution enables intelligent management of the application traffic flows and the orchestration of the WAN connections to optimize end-user experience both for inter-office communications as well as Internet applications served by private, public or hybrid clouds.

The combined solution enhances the performance of the network and increases network reliability by dynamically steering packets based on advanced algorithms that learn and adapt depending on network conditions. This cognitive and adaptive approach to SD-WAN facilitates setting the networks on autopilot to work around and shield network problems without any human intervention.

“When we chose Mushroom Networks’ cognitive SD-WAN to integrate with our uCPE offering, we were foremost impressed with the automation, ease of use and under-the-hood sophistication that the technology brought to the table. Combining Mushroom Networks’ broadband bonding capable SD-WAN with our leading edge XV8800 series hardware, we are furthering our vision for enabling virtualized networks”, said Luca Messina, the Chief Marketing and Products Officer at Aethra Telecommunications.

“Aethra has a proven track record of success in providing cutting-edge communications solutions. Their flexible and scalable uCPE platform will be a key enabler for ISPs and integrators to bring next generation SD-WAN services cost effectively without the complexity”, said Cahit Akin, CEO of Mushroom Networks. “Our visions overlap in creating simple, yet powerful solutions that both small and larger organizations can leverage without sacrificing on advanced leading-edge capabilities”.

The uCPE with SD-WAN solution is now available in Europe, Central America, the Middle East and Northern Africa regions.
