SD-WAN vendor, Talari Networks announced that its latest software release now includes WAN optimization services that will run natively in the core platform.
Talari said its SD-WAN solutions now provide native support for core WAN-optimization features, such as data compression and deduplication of data, in addition to congestion controls.
Talari WAN Optimization (WAN-Op) is a composite feature that increases efficiency across the WAN for bulk file-transfer traffic, especially for data requested by more than one user at the same location, said the company.
The company also unveiled a jointly validated solution with Zscaler, the leader in cloud security, to help companies transform from their hub-and-spoke network architectures to secure, direct-to-cloud connections.
The jointly validated solution 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. This service will be delivered via Talari’s Adaptive Path Networking (APN) software (Release 7.0), available on all currently supported physical, virtual and cloud appliances.
