Mushroom Networks Targets Wireless Market

San Diego-based Mushroom Networks, a spinout of the University of California San Diego, said today that the firm is now applying its technology to the wireless market. The firm, which develops technology which combines multiple Internet connections into one, faster broadband connection, said its product PortaBella takes up to four cellular data cards and creates a single, high-speed shared connection from those four cards. The company is targeting mobile TV, enterprise markets, the military, news crews, and others who need high speed wireless internet connections. Mushroom Networks also makes hardware which aggregates high speed, landline Internet connections such as cable, DSL, or T1 connections, into much faster and reliable broadband connections.
