The TRUFFLE BBNA (Broadband Bonding Network Appliance), is a one-sided Internet bonding appliance that provides aggregated Internet connectivity to small and medium size businesses (SMBs), enterprises, apartments, hotels, hospitals and other multi-tenant buildings via aggregating multiple Internet access lines for increased performance and reliability. With the TRUFFLE BBNA, multiple DSL, cable modem or T1 services can be combined to provide higher speed and more reliable Internet access.
The TRUFFLE BBNA 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. The payback period on the investment is often less than 6 months. You can download an application scenarios and ROI analysis white-paper by clicking here.
The TRUFFLE BBNA combines multiple Internet access lines, each on a 10/100baseT Ethernet interface, into a single aggregated Internet access line, again on a 10/100baseT Ethernet interface. The aggregation over the Internet access lines is done even for a single session, providing the full aggregate speed. The TRUFFLE BBNA6401 supports aggregation of up to 6 Internet access lines and additional cellular data cards. 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.
