Talari Networks Adaptive Private Networking technology combines diverse, abundant, affordable IP bandwidth sources, applying a RAID-like approach to WAN connections to solve the reliability and predictability issues associated with shared-IP networks. The result? Next generation Enterprise WANs without compromise:
The Enterprise WAN service market has been static for years. The introduction of Frame Relay in the early 1990s brought lower cost, higher bandwidth, solid reliability and easier manageability to building Enterprise WANs over the then prevalent X.25 and point-to-point leased-line alternatives. Frame Relay, together with similarly priced, single-source MPLS services, still dominate the Enterprise WAN market for corporate Intranet traffic. What these services have in common is that enterprises buy reliable ("3½ nines," i.e., 99.95%, or better) service and bandwidth end-to-end from a single carrier, at a price - on a cost-per-Mbps basis - almost as high as what they paid back in 1998!
The costs of operating carrier networks, however, have fallen in line with Moore's Law, as have the end customer prices of alternate Internet and broadband-based WAN solutions. Where Frame Relay or MPLS bandwidth (for branch connectivity) costs anywhere from $400 to $1,500 per Mbps per month, broadband connectivity such as DSL or cable is widely available at a monthly cost of only $3 to $15 per Mbps, or even less. At the same time the bandwidth of these broadband and Internet networks has improved, as has their reliability, even if they are not yet "business quality", nor likely to "ever" be 99.99% reliable on their own. And so enterprise buyers have been quite correct in sticking with these expensive private WAN services until now.
That's where Talari Networks and Net Direct Systems come in. Together, we solve the reliability and predictability issues associated with shared-IP networks, in general, and the public Internet in particular, our Adaptive Private Networking technology enables Enterprises to gain a step-function improvement in their WAN. Net Direct Systems can provide you the highest quality service and support when planning, designing, and implementing this technology.
In the same way that RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) revolutionized high-end data storage, APN is revolutionizing corporate WANs. Talari applies to WAN connections a unique combination of RAID-like methods and overlay networking techniques, like those used by services such as Skype or Vonage in delivering voice over the public Internet. By leveraging network bandwidth from multiple sources - including both high-speed Internet connections at central locations and broadband connections (DSL, cable where available) at branch locations - APN allows businesses for the first time to take advantage of the economics of broadband and the public Internet without sacrificing business quality reliability and availability.
No one today builds monolithic, proprietary, single-disk storage solutions; they leverage commodity PC hard disk technology and use RAID technology to get greater capacity and performance, lower cost, and higher reliability. With Talari Networks' Adaptive Private Networking, enterprise managers can take the same approach to building corporate WANs. No longer must businesses purchase overpriced, "over-engineered" network services from a single telecom provider. APN delivers more bandwidth, lower monthly WAN costs and greater network reliability than the best single Frame Relay or MPLS network can provide.
