Managing multiple locations for large enterprises requires bringing together a number of different technologies so they can work as one while addressing the challenges of their local markets. While legacy system did the job, software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is introducing new levels of connectivity that are more efficient and cheaper to deploy and operate. The sixth generation of Talari Networks' Adaptive Private Networking (APN) 6.0 and Aware (News - Alert) 3.0 management software have been revamped to simplify and speed up the deployment of the company's SD-WAN.

Talari designs failsafe WANs for business-critical applications enterprises rely on by supporting multiple network services in physical, virtual and cloud locations. The latest version of its patented APN software reduces the need for branch-based technical resources or support for the initial implementation or ongoing SD-WAN management with improved remote capabilities.

"As the market transitions from legacy router-based WANs to emerging SD-WAN infrastructures, there is an expectation and demand for technology that minimizes the investment required to deploy and manage the solution," said John Dickey, president and COO at Talari Networks (News - Alert). "While the centralized, controller-based architecture utilized by Talari could already deliver on a majority of these requirements, the new capabilities in APN 6.0 demonstrate how Talari continues to take key steps to making our solution much easier to implement."

The new improvements build on Talari's centralized orchestration capability of scalable network-wide point of management with an easy to use interface and installation functions. It now provides a better view of configuration templates that has been simplified with a learning curve that is lower for administrating key network services, including SD-WAN. This gives administrators tools for maintaining a consistent configuration even when there are multiple managers or supervisors in different locations involved in provisioning the network.

Talari Aware is a centralized management system with tools to configure, monitor, and analyze a Talari SD-WAN. It gives IT staff valuable data for lowering the time it takes to deploy Talari appliances as well as configuration errors with detailed performance data correlated across the network. The new Aware 3.0 supports all of the new capabilities being delivered in APN 6.0.

For enterprises that have multiple branches, centralizing the management process in as few locations as possible has many benefits. Not only does it save costs, but it improves the security of the organization while giving administrators the ability to deploy new products and services faster. With the new Adaptive Private Networking (APN) 6.0 and Aware 3.0 management software Talari Networks looks to make the process much easier.
