New equipment vendor Mushroom Networks has arrived on the scene with a solution that already offers a fairly distinct twist on the relatively new capability of multi-technology broadband bonding, first brought to U.S. shores by Sharedband Networks. The company's Truffle product is a broadband bonding network appliance (BBNA-new acronym alert) that is deployed only at the customer premises. It uses IP to perform network layer bonding, rather than using the IEEE 802.3ah standard. Â The most notable distinction is that the Truffle solution is only a CPE solution, and doesn't require investment in another box or technology deeper into the network.
