The Truffle Broadband Bonding Network Appliance is a packet level load balancing router with WAN aggregation and Internet failover technology. Truffle provides aggregated Internet connectivity to small and medium size businesses (SMBs), enterprise offices, apartments, hotels, hospitals and other multi-tenant buildings via aggregating multiple Internet access lines for increased performance and reliability. With the Truffle, multiple DSL, cable modem or T1 services can be combined to provide higher speed and more reliable Internet access.
The Truffle provides a quick Return on Investment (ROI) and lower operating expenses. The total subscription costs of multiple Internet access lines are often substantially less than a single high-speed Internet access line of equivalent bandwidth, which makes Truffle an ideal load balancing router for SMBs and enterprise branch offices. The payback period on the investment is often less than 6 months.
Besides WAN aggregation, Truffle is also a stateful firewall, bandwidth manager, Internet failover, traffic monitoring and traffic shaping appliance that is packed with cutting edge adaptive Quality of Service features - all in one box. Truffle is powered by our enterprise level operating software that is dependable, scalable, remotely manageable and field upgradable.

The aggregation over the Internet access lines is done even for a single session, providing the full aggregate speed.

Each Internet access line may be through a DSL modem, cable modem, T1, MPLS, satellite modem, fractional DS3, DS3, fiber, cellular or any other broadband connection.
