Talari Networks (News - Alert) has announced that its appliance-based WAN Virtualization solutions are compliant with key Internet protocol (IP) telephony solutions from Avaya, a global provider of business collaboration systems, software and services.
For WAN Virtualization, Talari’s Adaptive Private Networking (APN) technology enables business VoIP enterprises to combine two or more sources of abundant public network connectivity to create a network with equivalent or better performance than costly private WAN connectivity such as MPLS.
A number of enterprises have deployed business VoIP to reduce the costs of their communications infrastructure, and they are still paying a premium for the private WAN connectivity supporting these systems, said Keith Morris, vice president of marketing at Talari Networks.
Morris said that Talari directly addresses this issue, enabling business-class performance and predictability for business VoIP across public Internet bandwidth that is a fraction of the cost of MPLS; thereby allowing a business to cap, reduce, or eliminate their use of private WAN connections."
Sno-Isle is one of the companies benefiting from the interoperability of Talari Networks and Avaya (News - Alert) solutions. It’s a group of public libraries serving communities in the North Puget Sound, Wash. region.
“Before we heard about Talari, we were willing to pay premium dollars for MPLS because they guaranteed the quality of service needed for our VoIP calls,” said John Mulhall, Information Technology manager at Sno-Isle.
Mulhall said that now they have the ideal scenario -- “we've significantly reduced our connectivity costs by using less expensive cable/ADSL connections, without sacrificing reliability-because Talari's WAN Virtualization appliances deliver performance predictability that the public WAN links alone wouldn't achieve.”
