Truffle: Increase Internet performance & boost reliability for your business offices, Bond & WAN orchestrate any set of Internet connections, Save on your Internet bandwidth cost
Truffle Software Defined WAN Orchestration and Broadband Bonding appliance enables cost-effective and self-healing Internet access for businesses, enterprise branch offices and other multi-tenant buildings. Load balancing and intelligent Software Defined WAN orchestration of multiple Internet access lines increases Internet performance and boosts reliability. Truffle load balances and intelligently orchestrates up to four (or optionally as many as eight or twelve) Internet lines to increase performance and up-time of applications and services that run over the Internet. Several T-1, DSL, cable modem, MPLS, metro-ethernet or fiber services from different ISPs can be aggregated to provide increased bandwidth.
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. The Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) architecture of Truffle enables easy and efficient management of all WAN connections.
Besides Software Defined 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 grade Software Defined Networking (SDN) architecture that is dependable, scalable, remotely manageable and field upgradable.
Truffle combines multiple Internet access lines, each on a GbE (or 10 GbE) copper Ethernet or fiber SFP interface, into a single aggregated Internet access line, again on an Ethernet interface. The aggregation and packet-level load balancing over the Internet access lines is done even for a single protocol session, providing the full aggregate speed. The Truffle supports aggregation of up to 4,8 or 12 Internet access lines and additional 2 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.
