Today, virtually everything in business is becoming digitally enabled, and enterprise WANs are a driving force for this enablement. Business is conducted over distributed networks, yet, when the network is unable to respond to changing business demands and new market opportunities, transactions suffers
Enterprise WANs must rapidly evolve if companies are to succeed in today’s competitive and demanding market. This requires them to be more cost-efficient, with greater agility, reliability, security, and performance; and support open and diverse networking and cloud technologies.
Talari’s software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) addresses these requirements and more. Talari SD-WAN helps lower costs, simplify management, secure networks and applications, and elevate network and application reliability. The Talari SD-WAN utilizes its Adaptive Path Networking (APN) WAN technology and network performance management software for failsafe connectivity. Creating a virtual network overlay, Talari takes advantage of all available WAN connections, while centralizing control of, and visibility into, the entire SD-WAN. Talari APN-enabled SD-WAN decouples network configuration from individual WAN links and hardware components, creating a software-driven, unified WAN fabric.
Talari SD-WAN elements include a central orchestration controller, Talari Aware centralized management, and edge appliances (physical or virtual) that scale to meet the needs of cloud services, data centers, branch offices and home offices.
SD-WAN use cases
A hybrid WAN composed of MPLS and one or more broadband links deployed in an active/standby mode is increasingly common in today’s enterprise. But this configuration has some downsides, including inefficient use of bandwidth and session drop on failover. With Talari SD-WAN, all circuits are active, so every application has access to the full aggregated bandwidth. Policy-based prioritization ensures real-time quality sensitive applications, such as VoIP, get the highest priority and are securely transmitted over the best possible network to maintain application quality.
Companies are looking for alternatives to MPLS because of high cost, lack of cloud access, limited bandwidth, long lead time, and extended contract terms. Aggregated broadband Internet links are an enticing option, that offer large amounts of bandwidth at lower cost, more favorable terms, and are often immediately available. Internet links can deliver the same, if not better reliability than MPLS, by using Talari SD-WAN to build-in security, reliability, quality of service, and high availability.
Extending the enterprise WAN to the cloud
Talari’s SD-WAN extends the reach of the corporate WANs into cloud services. We make cloud access seamless, easy to control and manage, with visibility into the connection between a company’s data center, remote physical locations, private cloud instances, and public cloud instances.
Branch Office Simplification
Corporate IT is under pressure to deliver branch office access with improved quality of experience to applications located in multiple locations, including the cloud. The increased number and diversity of applications accessed within branch offices results in added complexity and higher support cost. While branch services and complexity are increasing, the required technical skills available to support the new infrastructure is often lacking or non-existent.
Talari SD-WAN consolidates multiple core functions such as SD-WAN, routing, firewall, NAT, QoS into an easy- to-deploy, virtual or physical appliance, administered from a central location. The Talari SD-WAN fabric is extensible, and works with leading 3rd party vendors, to deliver the services enterprise applications require – in any location.
Talari is the original innovator of SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN) technology, helping multi-site organizations transform their remote and branch-office networks by intelligently allocating more bandwidth at less cost, while delivering superior QoS for greater business continuity, operational agility and application control. Talari provides a ‘failsafe’ SD-WAN solution offering dynamic capacity, improved reliability and greater quality of experience. Our patented hardware and virtual solutions have proven so effective at delivering optimal WAN-path determination that Talari is uniquely trusted to broker real-time, VoIP traffic in large metro 911-emergency contact centers. Talari provides the most resilient and responsive edge network, delivering stable and redundant packet-level performance across hybrid-cloud IT infrastructures, regardless of the underlying transport technology or application architecture. Talari is deployed in over 400 organizations in 40 different countries with more than 9,000 aggregated SD-WAN sites.
