Zycko and Talari Networks Partner to Distribute Enterprise WAN Technology across Europe


Reduces monthly WAN costs by up to 90%

Return on investment in less than 12 months

27 May 2010, London, England and Cupertino, California – value-added distributor Zycko today announces its new distribution partnership with corporate WAN virtualisation specialists, Talari Networks. This collaboration will distinguish Zycko as Talari Networks’ first distributor in Europe, and will ensure that Zycko’s resellers across the continent have access to the company’s Adaptive Private Networking Technology (APN).

Talari’s networking solutions are part of a new class of product developed to deliver a revolutionary approach to building corporate WANs; increasing bandwidth by using additional network resources from various Internet Service Providers (ISPs), including both high-speed internet connections at customers’ central locations and broadband connections (DSL, cable where available) at branch locations. It provides reliable, cost-effective support for business tools such as VoIP and videoconferencing, allowing organisations to take advantage of the affordability of broadband without foregoing business quality, reliability or availability.

Zycko’s Group Sales & Marketing Director David Galton-Fenzi commented: “Talari’s corporate WAN virtualisation solutions are a welcome arrival for our resellers, with the APN technology complementing products offered by some of our other vendors, such as Riverbed’s WAN optimisation technology.  This new partnership means that we can offer our European resellers networking solutions that work in harmony to make their IT functions as efficient, reliable and cost-effective as possible.”

Tom Pettigrew, VP of Worldwide Sales at Talari, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Zycko in our first European venture.  Corporate Wide Area Networking has remained fairly static over the years, but our pioneering APN technology means that businesses can save between 40 and 90 percent on their monthly WAN costs while maintaining greater reliability than any single-provider private network. Zycko’s value-added approach in Europe makes them the perfect Talari distributor.”

Talari Networks increases capacity of corporate WAN architecture with its three Mercury APN Appliances: the T3000 for data centres and headquarters; T700 ideal for remote offices; and the T200 for small/home office environments. Each appliance uses Talari’s Multipath Bandwidth Spectrometry and Resilient Multipath Connectivity technology, which provide the rich real-time information that APN requires to operate the virtual WAN at maximum speed, reliability and efficiency.
