Mushroom Networks Rolls Out New Eight-port PortaBella Appliance

By Jyothi Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

San Diego, California-based Mushroom Networks (News - Alert), Inc. has recently rolled out its new PortaBella network appliance, designed for faster mobile network uploads and downloads. The new device aggregates cellular bandwidth to offer consistent high-speed mobile internet connectivity for rich data transfer.

The PortaBella appliance comes with eight-ports, offering users increased mobile Internet connection in both the uplink and downlink directions.

Mushroom Networks explained that the appliance is ideal for usage at high-bandwidth or video-heavy markets such as enterprise, mobile TV broadcasting, maritime and emergency response. The device is leverages the company's award-winning Broadband Bonding technology, supporting up to eight USB cellular WAN connections.

"PortaBella removes the barrier to ultra-reliable fast Internet where traditional services are either unavailable or too costly," said Dr. Cahit Akin (News - Alert), co-founder and CEO of Mushroom Networks.  "By combining the throughput of several cellular data cards, PortaBella delivers reliable fiber like speeds to remote offices, temporary construction sites, public transportation, or any place fast and reliable Internet service is needed on the go."

The appliance is designed to automatically bond with multiple cellular wireless Internet access cards to better offer cost-effective and highly-reliable Internet connectivity for mobile locations. It also has a built-in optional rechargeable battery to enable extended mobile runtime, along with a sliding hard cover that guards cellular data cards in field conditions.

"Many wireless services have geographic gaps in coverage. By combining the wireless data services from different providers, users are able to significantly reduce signal outage events. PortaBella provides the fastest, most reliable cellular based broadband connection as our algorithms dynamically adapt to varying wireless channel conditions in real-time," Akin added.  

The device also includes a built-in WAN Ethernet port and WiFi functionality that can be used either as a WiFi Access Point (News - Alert) or as a WAN WiFi link.
