Talari Receives 2015 SDN Excellence Award

The Company’s Talari Aware Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) Solution Honored for Innovation

SAN JOSE, Calif., — April 6, 2015 — Talari Networks, Inc., the leading provider of Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions that help businesses perform brilliantly with the creation of a smart network that proactively manages capacity, quality and performance, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named its Talari Aware SD-WAN solution as a 2015 SDN Excellence Award winner presented by TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and SDN Zone.

“We’re pleased that TMC has recognized our innovation in the SDN space by extending the architecture and goals of SDN into the WAN,” said Talari’s CMO Kevin Gavin. “Talari’s SD-WAN solution leverages inexpensive Internet links in combination with more traditional MPLS links creating a hybrid WAN as a virtual overlay network that is abstracted from the underlying physical network. This gives applications using the WAN higher capacity plus greater reliability and, quality connections because it’s isolated from underlying network issues. And when our SD-WAN solution is coupled with Talari Aware, IT staff have unmatched, granular visibility into the network performance with data collection, analysis and reporting.”

Talari Aware is a centralized management system that gives IT staff the ability to configure, monitor and analyze a Talari Software Defined THINKING WAN. It uniquely collects information from the physical, virtual and application layers and presents the information in clear, aggregated and correlated views so IT staff can understand how the WAN is performing at every level. This results in an easy to manage network with unprecedented visibility into network quality and application performance that supports proactive vendor management and strategic network planning.

SDN architecture has already had a profound impact on the IT and Telecom industries and, as this technology continues to grow in popularity, the SDN Excellence Award recognizes the companies that are leading the way in SDN architecture and applications.

“Recognizing leaders advancing SDN technologies, TMC is proud to announce Talari as a recipient of the 2015 SDN Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The Talari Aware SD-WAN solution has demonstrated innovation and will help shape the face of the quickly evolving industry. It is our pleasure to honor Talari for their inspiring work.”
