Talari Appliance T860

Talari SD-WAN

Talari Networks, innovator of the most reliable SD-WAN technology, engineers the branch and edge network for maximum business impact, delivering superior application performance and network resiliency, while unlocking the benefits of seamless cloud connectivity services.

Talari T860 Appliance

The Talari T860 Appliance is designed for medium data centers and large branch offices. The T860 is a 1U rack-mountable appliance, and supports WAN bandwidth aggregation up to 800 Mbps uplink/800 Mbps downlink (800 Mbps full-duplex) across multiple WAN connections.

Talari SD-WAN Controller – Network Control Node (NCN)

The Talari T860 Appliance can be designated as the Talari SD-WAN master controller, and the central point of administration, for all Talari SD-WAN appliances. The primary purpose of the SD-WAN Controller, also called the network controller node (NCN), is to establish and administer conduits to multiple Talari SD-WAN appliances, synchronizing time between appliances, arbitrating end-to-end bandwidth reservations, and establishing dynamic connections between the SD-WAN appliances.


Enterprises are looking to centralize data center services with predictable application performance over a cost-effective WAN infrastructure with high reliability.  The Talari T860 eliminates 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 Talari Appliance services. Using a specialized protocol, 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.

Geographic Redundancy

With Talari’s geographic redundancy feature, any Talari Appliance can function as a secondary NCN. 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 the entire Talari SD-WAN.

Fault Tolerant

T860 Appliances include two pairs of fail-to-wire ports, and two pairs of fail-to-glass ports, automatically enabling a passive pass-through mode, even in the case of unforeseen interruptions in a Talari appliance.

SD-WAN Cloud Security

Talari’s jointly validated solution with Zscaler enables Talari SD-WAN edge nodes to transparently forward all Internet traffic to the Zscaler™ cloud over IPsec tunnels, providing a faster user experience, reducing bandwidth costs and simplifying operations. Key features include:

  • IPsec tunnels to the Zscaler cloud with one active tunnel per Talari SD-WAN node
  • Talari app-aware routing rules to selectively determine what traffic to forward to Zscaler
  • Talari secured local Internet breakouts, without the cost and complexity of deploying additional security appliances on customer premises.
