Mushroom Networks Truffle Lite


Like Truffle, Truffle Lite is also a Software Defined WAN Orchestration and Broadband Bonding appliance. It is an award winning appliance in the belt of Mushroom Networks. It is a next generation software appliance with an inbuilt Packet granularity aggregation, Bandwidth management and Internet failover. The Truffle Lite is a 10 year research product from Mushroom Networks and most reliable Internet load balancer with inbuilt Internet failover. For smaller businesses, Truffle Lite is a best load balancing appliance as it can combine multiple internet access lines and increases the speed and performance with a cost-effective and reliable way. By Truffle Lite, we can combine several ISPs to bring the high performance internet access line. Like Truffle, Truffle Lite is also an encrypted firewall, bandwidth manager, traffic monitoring, Internet failover and traffic shaping appliance that is packed with cutting edge adaptive Quality of Service features - all in one box. 

Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) design of Truffle Lite router is efficient and can manage any type of WAN connections like the Truffle. The base Truffle Lite model has 2 Ethernet based WAN and 2 Ethernet based LAN ports with the optional 1 or 2 more additional Ethernet based WAN ports for a total of up to 4 WAN ports. It also supports 2 USB based WAN ports for wireless 3G/4G data cards from any wireless carrier.

Truffle Lite installation can be done under 180 seconds without changing any existent WAN connections and you can enjoy a high speed and reliable Internet connection. The connection will be extremely fast and reliable.

Truffle Lite can use several T-1, DSL, cable modem, MPLS, metro-Ethernet or fiber services and combines their ISPs to give the user with increased bandwidth. Mushroom Networks used fundamental architecture of Truffle in Truffle lite, which means you will have all the Truffle features like dependability, scalability, remote manageability and field upgradable firmware features as standard.

Acceleration - With Truffle Lite Internet load balancer, all HTTP downlink sessions are aggregated for faster transfer via the Broadband Bonding technology. Even in cases of single HTTP session (an example of such a session is a single file download), all Internet access lines are simultaneously and intelligently combined together to provide a faster data transfer for that single session.

Downlink and Uplink Bonding in peered mode - Truffle Lite is a load balancing router with packet level Software Defined WAN aggregation. Truffle Lite bonds Internet access lines for all types of traffic (including encrypted traffic such as VPN) for aggregated downlink and uplink capacity when peered over the Internet with another Truffle located at the headquarter office or data center. For single office setups optional Broadband Bonding Service subscription enables downlink/uplink bonding.

Self Healing WAN for High 9s Network Reliability - In case of Internet access line failures, the Truffle keeps the ongoing sessions alive by making real-time per-packet routing decisions, even for the sessions in progress (in peered mode), without loss of data integrity. Additionally automatic failover protects against failures of one or more WAN link outages. Automated Domain Name Service (ADNS) optimization is used to maximize the utility of all active access lines, with automated email, syslog or SNMP alerts.

Application Armor with Session Keep Alive - When peered to a head-office Truffle Master unit, the Truffle Master unit monitors and intelligently reacts in realtime to mitigate any performance degradation caused by the WAN links at the branch offices. Managed parameters and network problems include packet loss, latency, jitter, cross-traffic, buffer management, MTU problems, black holes as well as others. In case of packet loss, spike in latency or any other degradation on any of the WAN links at the branch office, the VLL tunnel between Truffle and Truffle Master maintains the ongoing IP sessions without loss of performance by shielding the effects of dropped WAN link, lost packets, high latency on any of the links. 2G/3G/4G cellular cards can be added as standby WAN access links for additional reliability.

Elastic Static IP - A static IP in the cloud is provided as part of the optional Broadband Bonding Service and is mapped onto the Truffle. This means that static IP is available for services and inbound network access even during WAN outages, as long as at least one of the WAN links is up.
