Designed to bring the reliability and bandwidth to the large data centers and corporate headquarters, the Mercury T3000 appliance affordably delivers up to 500 Mbps. T3000 appliance can easily communicate with other Talari appliances, such as the Mercury T510, T730, T750, and T5000 models.
The 2U rack-mountable Mercury T3000 appliance is offered in two different software configurations:
- T3000H: designed for large data centers, T3000H supports aggregation of WAN bandwidth up to 500Mbps uplink/500Mbps downlink (500 Mbps full-duplex) across multiple WAN connections
- T3000L: designed for headquarters and data centers, T3000L supports aggregation of WAN bandwidth up to 240 Mbps total (uplink + downlink) across multiple WAN connections
The upgrade from T3000L to T3000H is a a software upgrade, insuring investment preservation. Additionally, T3000 runs the same software as the other models while taking performance and scalability to the next level, supporting hundreds of megabits of WAN bandwidth across the union of private WAN links and public Internet connections and providing support for a vastly larger number of branch connections and application flows.
Network Control Node (NCN)
Designed to bring the reliability and bandwidth to the data centers, Talari T3000 acts as the master controller of the APN and the central point of administration for the client nodes. The NCN’s primary purpose is to establish and utilize a Conduit with one or more Talari Client Nodes across the network for enterprise site-to-site communications. A particular NCN can administer and have conduits to multiple Client Nodes.
For enterprises looking to centralize more services at their data centers, predictable application performance over a cost effective WAN infrastructure and high reliability are key requirements. The T3000 High-Availability functionality eliminates the APN appliance as a single point of failure in the network by providing complete redundancy between two Talari appliances. The pre-designated "standby" appliance monitors the state of the "active" appliance and, in the event of a failure, takes over all APN services. Using a Redundant APN Control Protocol (RACP), the Talari High Availability system can detect a failure in the active appliance and switch over all functions to the standby appliance in a fraction of a second, in a way that is transparent to most active applications.
With the Geographic Redundancy feature, an APN Client Node can also function as a secondary Network Control Node. In the event of a primary data center failure, the backup data center should be operational and the secondary Talari appliance would act as the NCN for APN.
Talari T3000 appliance includes two pairs of fail-to-wire ports, automatically enabling a passive pass-through mode even in case of unforeseen interruptions in an APN device.
