SAN DIEGO, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mushroom Networks, Inc., innovators of Broadband Bonding technology, today announced a partnership with Impartial-IT, an IT company that provides consulting services, project management and distribution of hardware and software. Impartial-IT will now provide Mushroom Networks' patented solutions to both large enterprises, SMBs and governments in countries including France, Belgium, Switzerland, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria and North Africa, giving companies access to fast and cost-effective broadband, redundant service, as well as business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.
Impartial-IT, based in France, supports a wide range of businesses with projects by distributing, through its value-added partnerships, the biggest brands in the market both in hardware and software. As part of the new partnership, Impartial-IT will offer all Mushroom Network product lines, both wired and wireline, including Truffle, Truffle Lite and Portabella.
"Impartial-IT is committed to finding cutting-edge tools that offer capabilities superior to those already present in the market to help enterprises control spending," said Laurent Goffinet, Founder and Managing Partner at Impartial-IT. "We are excited about teaming up with Mushroom Networks to be able to offer businesses around the globe Broadband Bonding as an alternative technology for high bandwidth at an affordable price. Broadband Bonding can deliver a high degree of reliability because enterprises can bond multiple access links from different service providers ... if one link fails, the sessions stay alive since the others links still run. This equates to high 9's reliability. And because Mushroom Networks is Ethernet-based, it can be used with any existing service [like MPLS] to boost performance, or provide redundancy in case the primary link fails."
Mushroom Networks' Truffle provides a way for organizations with limited bandwidth options to bond together up to 12 Internet connections into a single virtual broadband pipe. It accepts any combination of connection technologies, including T1, fiber, DSL, or cable, and intelligently combines them for optimal speed and improved reliability due to the redundancies of multiple connections. Its PortaBella product aggregates the bandwidth capacity of as many as eight USB based cellular wireless Internet access cards into a single connection. For example, it can combine one Orange, one SFR and one Bouygues Telecom card for reliable Internet and is best suited for remote offices, construction sites, inside vehicles and areas where geographical terrain makes Internet service challenging.
According to Goffinet: "As agent and partner of Mushroom Networks, Impartial-IT's goal is to help companies save overall costs, increase reliability and bandwidth of internet access as well as develop international business of Mushroom Networks."
"With its commitment to excellence in the IT consulting services, project management and hardware and software distribution sector, Impartial-IT allows Mushroom Networks the perfect opportunity to further expand our Broadband Bonding solutions as we continue with our role as the global provider of WAN virtualization technologies for high performance enterprise data and video applications," said Cahit Akin, co-founder and CEO of Mushroom Networks.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).

What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
