3G 4G LTE Bonding
Portabella is a Broadband Bonding™ appliance that combines and intelligently manages 2, 4 or 8 cellular sim connections from any of your service providers. Portabella can stripe a single session over the available paths and therefore create a single fast pipe (requires peering service).
Live video broadcasting & webcasting
Portabella supports a bonding tunnel that is optimized for live video transmission (Streamer add-on). Streamer applies a special coding before transmitting partial streams and therefore any network problems such as packet loss, latency or jitter can be shielded from the video application.
Bonded WAN Speed
Portabella is a packet-level load balancing 3G 4G LTE router. Portabella can bond cellular Internet access lines for all types of traffic (including encrypted traffic such as VPN) for aggregated downlink and uplink capacity when peered over the Internet with a Mushroom Relay located at the headquarter office or data center. The optional Broadband Bonding Service subscription enables downlink/uplink bonding.
Without peering, all HTTP downlink sessions are still bonded for faster file transfers. Even in cases of single HTTP session (such as a single file download), all Internet access lines are simultaneously and intelligently combined together to provide a faster data transfer for that single session.
Without the optional peering, non-HTTP downlink sessions and all uplink sessions initiated from the Local Network will be session based load balanced intelligently across the 3G 4G LTE WAN lines. The application and cookie semantics will be preserved for sites such as banking sites.
Live Video Streaming
Portabella supports a free add-on tunnel (Streamer) that is optimized for live video streaming from the field to any CDN or video server over the bonded 3G, 4G, LTE modems. This video optimized bonding tunnel enables live video streaming applications to be 100% shielded from any network problems such as packet loss, latency, jitter or even full modem disconnects. Even during those situations, your live video stream will continue without a glitch.
Network Security & Scalability
Portabella can be configured either in pass-through to function inline with the existing legacy firewalls/routers with existing network configuration untouched. If preferred, Portabella can also be installed as the primary firewall/router with strong encryption (up to AES 256), website blocking, DNS redirection and advanced filtering, all based on field-proven secure platform.
Elastic Static IP
Static IP addresses in the cloud (or from your data-center) can be mapped onto the Portabella. This means that static IP is available for services that rely on stable IP addressing (such as VPN, VoIP/SIP etc.) and inbound network access is available, even during 3G, 4G, LTE outages, as long as at least one of the WAN links is connected.
Various Portabella models support embedded modems with high temperature and vibration tolerances, including train certifications. Other Portabella models support external usb-based modem ports for additional flexibility.
Zero-Touch Install & Management
Portabellas are preconfigured before shipment and therefore supports zero-touch installation when received. Any additional configuration or monitoring can be done through the web-based management interface either locally or remotely, as well as through a cloud based Monitoring Portal that provides in depth monitoring capabilities. All wireless ISPs are supported worldwide.
