Mushroom Networks aims to bond with SMBs via Porcini

Mushroom Networks has announced a version of its broadband line bonding platform for small and medium-sized business customers. The smaller product is called Porcini (becuase it costs several hundreds of dollars less than a Truffle). The Porcini has four wireline ports and a USB port for one wireless broadband connection, while the company's Truffle for larger businesses has six wireline ports and one for wireless. Mushroom's tech bonds broadband lines of different speeds together to increase total available bandwidth.

Broadband bonding, also touted by U.K. firm Sharedband Networks, could be the next big thing in business broadband for companies that have different types of access and do not want to--or can not afford to--move up market to a T-1 line.
