SAN DIEGO, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mushroom Networks, Inc., innovator of Broadband Bonding technology, has announced a reseller partnership with Select Telecom, a leading provider of custom telecom and broadband solutions for businesses. Select Telecom is providing Mushroom Networks' patent pending solutions to the Northeast region including the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, giving businesses access to fast and cost-effective broadband, redundant service and business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.
"Select Telecom is working with Mushroom Networks to offer businesses Broadband Bonding as an alternative technology for high bandwidth at a much lower cost," said Michael Durante, president of Select Telecom. "It was immediately clear to our team that the technology would further enhance our +99% customer satisfaction track record. Businesses can achieve lower networking costs and if a line goes down, the diversified connections ensure redundancy and disaster preparedness, features that are especially important in light of the recent storms in the Northeast such as Superstorm Sandy."
Select Telecom was a key partner in the recent implementation of Mushroom Networks' Truffle appliances at New York-based real estate broker Houlihan Lawrence to replace their expensive and slow MPLS network with Truffle. Truffle is a WAN virtualization appliance that leverages virtual leased lines (VLLs) and Broadband Bonding, a technique that melds various numbers of Internet broadband lines into a single connection. Houlihan Lawrence is using Truffle appliances to interconnect its 25 branch offices and corporate headquarters and establish a fully-redundant solution with automated failover for their data and VoIP (Voice over IP) services, that strengthens its business continuity initiative.
The fast-tracked roll-out of Truffle was quick and simple. In addition, Houlihan Lawrence has cut its telecom costs in half and its wide area network (WAN) speeds are about 75 times faster than before since it began using Truffle.
