Mushroom Networks and Select Telecom Sign Reseller Agreement

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Select Telecom has been chosen as the official reseller of Mushroom Networks, Inc. products. Mushroom Networks' patent pending solutions will now be made available by Select Telecom in the Northeast region within the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Businesses in these areas will now be offered rapid and economical broadband, redundant service and business continuity and disaster recovery products by Select Telecom.

In a statement, Michael Durante, president, Select Telecom said, "Select Telecom is working with Mushroom Networks to offer businesses Broadband Bonding as an alternative technology for high bandwidth at a much lower cost. It was immediately clear to our team that the technology would further enhance our +99% customer satisfaction track record. Businesses can achieve lower networking costs and if a line goes down, the diversified connections ensure redundancy and disaster preparedness, features that are especially important in light of the recent storms in the Northeast such as Superstorm Sandy."

Houlihan Lawrence, a real estate agent in New York, substituted their costly and sluggish MPLS network with Mushroom Networks' Truffle appliances. Mushroom Networks completed this deployment with assistance from Select Telecom. Virtual leased lines or VLLs and Broadband Bonding, a technique wherein several Internet broadband lines are combined into a single connection, are advantageously used by the WAN virtualization appliance, Truffle.

Houlihan Lawrence has been able to interconnect its 25 branch offices and corporate headquarters using Truffle appliances. A completely-redundant offering with computerized failover is provided by Truffles for Houlihan Lawrence’s data and VOIP services, thereby intensifying the organization’s business continuity idea.

Truffle was implemented in a rapid and simplified manner. Houlihan Lawrence has been able to decrease its telecom expenses by 50 percent. The organization is also experiencing wide area network speeds that are nearly 75 times quicker than before.
