Mushroom Networks Awarded 2017 Internet Telephony SD-WAN Excellence Award

SD-WAN Innovator's VOIP Armor Recognized for Exceptional Innovation

SAN DIEGO – September 27, 2017 – Mushroom Networks announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded VOIP Armor 2017 Internet Telephony SD-WAN Excellence Award.

VOIP Armor is a software module for Mushroom’s SD-WAN appliances that is specifically designed to optimize voice over IP traffic. The VOIP Armor overlay tunnel has the ability to monitor available paths in real-time for parameters such as packet loss, latency, jitter and the historic behavior of those paths. The built-in decision engine can accordingly route packets around network problems in real-time, even without disrupting on-going VOIP / SIP sessions.

VOIP Armor has been deployed with leading Internet Service Providers, Internet Telephony Service Providers as well as enterprises from small to large size.

“We are proud and happy that TMC recognized our innovation in SD-WAN. Our deep portfolio of application centric overlay tunnels is the first real step towards putting networks on autopilot,” said Cahit Akin, CEO of Mushroom Networks. 

“Congratulations to Mushroom Networks for receiving 2017 Internet Telephony SD-WAN Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “VOIP Armor has demonstrated true innovation and is leading the way for Software Defined Wide Area Network. I look forward to continued excellence from Mushroom Networks in 2017 and beyond.”

The Internet Telephony SD-WAN Excellence Awards have been bestowed upon companies that demonstrate the innovation, vision, and execution to deliver software-based networking tools to support different and unique communities of interest.

Winners of the SDN Excellence Award will be featured in the next issue of Internet Telephony magazine.
