PhillyCom, Inc. and Talari Networks

In today’s connected world, your clients depend on a reliable, high-quality network to get their jobs done. Poor quality connections can mean time and money lost due to slow applications, dropped calls and session timeouts; and, in many firms, losing a network connection means losing the ability to work altogether. In order to avoid these costly disruptions, most law firms have been forced to over-engineer their networks, oversubscribe to expensive WAN links and overpay for standby backup links. But now there is a new way to achieve the WAN reliability, application quality and bandwidth today’s law firms require, all while staying under budget.

Please join us for this happy hour discussion with Talari Networks, winner of the Best of Interop 2013 award for Performance Optimization and Testing. Hear how the company’s technology enables network managers to aggregate multiple WAN connections — existing private WANs, such as MPLS, and any type of Internet WAN links (DSL, cable, fiber, Metro Ethernet, etc.) — into a virtual WAN. Talari’s WAN Virtualization solution uses end-to-end algorithms to do dynamic, real-time traffic engineering, and it’s able to react in sub-seconds to link failures and congestion-related network problems. Using WAN Virtualization, firms can build a WAN that is less expensive, offers much higher bandwidth and has lower ongoing operational costs than typical proprietary, single-vendor WANs.
