Talari's APN is Revolutionizing Corporate WANs Similar to How RAID Revolutionized High-End Data Storage

Talari Networks (News - Alert) is bringing Wide Area Network – WAN – virtualization and cloud economics to enterprise networking.

The company is the developer of a new, cutting-edge technology, known as Adaptive Private Networking. APN delivers a network with: 30 to 100 times the bits per dollar, ongoing WAN costs reduced by 40 percent to 90 percent, and greater reliability than single-provider frame relay or MPLS services, Talari says.

By solving reliability and predictability issues associated with shared-IP networks and the public Internet, Talari Networks’ APN technology enables enterprises to gain a step-function improvement in their WAN.

“WAN virtualization using APN technology allows unified communications applications to run reliably on a less expensive WAN infrastructure,” said Andrew Gottlieb (News - Alert), CEO of Talari Networks. “Rather than paying more for their WAN in the move to unified communications, enterprises can actually pay less, without sacrificing reliability or performance predictability.”

In the same way that Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks, RAID, revolutionized high-end data storage, APN is revolutionizing corporate WANs, according to Gottlieb.

Talari applies to WAN connections a combination of RAID-like methods and overlay networking techniques, like those used by services such as Skype or Vonage (News - Alert) in delivering voice over the public Internet.

For real-time applications like VoIP and videoconferencing, APN delivers reliable, cost-effective support, Talari said. It routinely chooses network paths with the least packet loss and lowest jitter for such high-priority real-time traffic, and switches with sub-second response to a better path in the face of high loss or jitter.

Where bandwidth availability allows, APN provides protection by replicating real-time traffic flows along a second path, suppressing duplicates at the receiving end, delivering quality connectivity. 

APN's decision making is powered by two key component technologies. Talari's Multipath Network Spectrometry is the key enabling technology, providing rich real-time information. Resilient Multipath Connectivity technology delivers end-to-end reliability and protected application performance, for both TCP-based apps and real-time applications like VoIP and videoconferencing.

In recent company news, Talari Networks, Inc. was selected for membership in the Avaya (News - Alert) DevConnect program. The program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of third-party products that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions. Member organizations have expertise in a broad range of technologies – including IP telephony, contact centers and mobility applications – helping companies extend the value of multivendor networks and transform voice into an intelligent business application that delivers value.

Gottlieb told TMCnet that Talari is also expanding its presence into Europe. For instance, Zycko recently announced its distribution partnership with Talari Networks. The collaboration makes Zycko Talari Networks' first distributor in Europe, and gives Zycko’s resellers across the continent access to the company's APN technology.

Earlier this year, Talari Networks launched its Partner Program. Talari will be partnering with value-added resellers, distributors and solution providers to accelerate the transformation of enterprise WAN.
