Talari Expands SD-WAN Platform for Service-Chaining Hosted Apps


Talari Networks – innovator of the most reliable SD-WAN technology –
announced today the availability of its new E1000 appliance packed with
rich features for service-chaining hosted third party applications,
delivering greater high availability and throughput with up to 2 Gbps
full duplex performance. The E1000 enables companies with medium to
large branch offices to easily scale SD-WAN deployments to seamlessly
connect to cloud/SaaS and enterprise data centers.

The E1000 is Talari's newest addition to its SD-WAN edge solution
offerings, enabling flexible L2 or L3 overlay deployments, while
ensuring WAN connectivity is abundant, and fast and easy to deploy. The
E1000 is also a modular chassis with expansion card options that
increase port density and deliver 10Gb uplink throughput.

Scalability and easy service-chaining

Scalability and easy service-chaining are the hallmarks of the E1000
with integrated network services including WAN Optimization, firewall,
NAT, router and VPN concentrator, that are interconnected through the
network and centrally managed by the Talari SD-WAN controller.

"Typically building a service chain to support a new application takes
considerable cost, time and effort, requiring specialized, individually
configured network devices, which had to be manually connected in the
required services sequence," said Atchison Frazer, head of worldwide
marketing at Talari Networks. "Talari transforms both the WAN and branch
infrastructure, with centralized orchestration that makes
service-chaining and application provisioning significantly less
expensive, faster and easier: E1000 is a true multi-service
edge-function replacement within a single appliance, requiring no
additional licenses."

Internet connectivity with built-in security, reliability and agility

The E1000 adds to Talari's WAN-edge solutions that match current network
resources with dynamic WAN traffic demand – whether as an overlay in a
hybrid, all-MPLS or all-Internet WAN.

Talari SD-WAN is agnostic to all carrier and transport methodologies, so
companies can use any carrier and easily migrate from one to another.
They can easily aggregate multiple bandwidth sources and transports such
as MPLS, VSAT, LTE, Broadband/DSL Internet and DIA Internet. In addition
to enabling reliable network connectivity, the E1000 high availability
(HA) features include configurable dual Fail-to-Wire or Fail-to-Block
pairs, and serial and parallel HA deployments.

Enterprises want their branch offices to be seamless and reliable
extensions to their corporate data centers, and the cloud to be a
seamless and reliable extension to their branch offices. An integral
component of the SD-WAN overlay, the E1000 is fully aware of all
bandwidth, both ingress and egress. With this knowledge, Talari permits
or denies bandwidth for any application. This enables QoS preservation
inbound through the last mile, ensuring the most important traffic
always receives the most reliable network service, and delivers a
predictable end-user quality of experience (QoE).

To provide a true branch extension to cloud or data center hosted
applications, the E1000 monitors all traffic on all paths within the
SD-WAN fabric on a packet-by-packet basis. This ensures that all traffic
remains within the SLA defined in QoS policies, even when WAN conditions
begin to degrade across a path. All packets are automatically assigned a
sequence ID to ensure reliable packet stream reassembly.

Each application has its own unique packet characteristics that
influence the network as it is forwarded from origin to the destination.
How these individual packets are sorted once they reach the WAN edge is
essential, so the E1000 uses Talari's proprietary protocol (TRP) to
perform millisecond, packet-by-packet, unidirectional measurement of
latency, jitter and packet loss, and then automatically and dynamically
selects the right WAN path and headroom-reserved bandwidth each time.

Zero-touch provisioning and deployment

Many companies have a minimum amount of IT expertise at their branch
offices, yet they still require failsafe, scalable and agile WANs
capable of supporting large numbers of remote locations and end-users.
Provisioning and deploying the E1000 in the branch is fast and easy. By
simply completing three steps, the E1000 can be online and in production
in a matter of minutes.

Pay-as-you-Grow performance

The E1000 performance is controlled by a flexible software license,
available as a monthly recurring subscription or perpetual purchase. A
benefit of this "rightsized" approach is organizations only need to pay
for the performance needed today, and can upgrade to higher performance
(up to the appliance maximum) by acquiring a new easy-to-implement,
stackable performance license.

About Talari

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
customers in 40 different countries with more than 9,000 aggregated
SD-WAN sites.
