Talari brings real-time, packet-level intelligence to the firm’s network, creating a Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN). With a Talari SD-WAN, Taft has increased capacity, improved reliability, and lowered costs while ensuring that applications are not impacted by underlying network issues.
“I am a believer in trying new technologies when they solve the problem,” says Carroll. “Before we had Talari, videoconferencing and other apps were unreliable because of a poor circuit. Now I can balance circuits across Level 3, AT&T and Cogent, and there are no complaints from users. I bought Talari to make the network more reliable, and it did exactly what it promised.”
Talari solved Taft’s network reliability issues immediately, and it had many more
positive impacts in maintenance, application management and cost savings. Talari sits in front of the Riverbed appliances, correcting the problems that Riverbed could not solve.
“Even when we have carrier outages the network stays up and running without a hiccup,” says Carroll.
Talari’s patented technology facilitates quality-based routing, making the network smart. Latency, packet loss and jitter are measured on each path for an intelligent view and the ability to micromanage network quality. Selective packet duplication ensures that Taft’s business-critical applications, such as videoconferencing and voice, work exactly when the lawyers need them.
When carrier connections fail, are lost, or disconnected, Talari proactively redirects traffic in milliseconds so that Taft’s lawyers and associates don’t experience a performance gap. Automatic failover also is helpful for network maintenance and upgrades.
“Talari gives me the luxury of doing maintenance without disturbing people,” he says. “If I have to replace a router from a carrier in the middle of the day, Talari sends all traffic to the other circuits without me doing anything and without users noticing the change.”
