The Mercury T750 works in concert with the company's T730 appliances deployed at branch-office sites.
Networks announced the addition of the Mercury T750 appliance to its family of
adaptive private-networking products for WAN Virtualization. Aimed at midsized
enterprises with up to 24 remote sites, the T750 is designed to provide
business-class (99.99 percent or greater) reliability and predictable
performance by using inexpensive public WAN links. The Mercury T750 appliance
became available this week, with a suggested list price of $21,995.
announced Jan. 17, is designed for deployment in the data center for
enterprises with up to 24 remote offices or within larger deployments with
regional data centers or co-location facilities. It works in concert with
Talari's T730 appliances deployed at branch-office sites, Talari's T200
appliances deployed in small office/home office locations, and Talari's T3000
appliances at larger data centers.
enterprises that have deployed WAN Optimization solutions are now looking for
the next technology to further improve application delivery and to reduce
costs," Michael Kennedy, principal at Network Strategy Partners, said in a
statement. "For these and other enterprises, Talari's technology is the
logical next step, as it enables enterprises to inexpensively add bandwidth,
reliability and application predictability for all applications, including real-time
applications, such as VOIP (voice over IP) and VDI (Virtual Desktop
is a 1U rack-mountable device that supports WAN bandwidth aggregation up to 120M
bps downstream and 60M bps upstream while doing 128-bit AES (Advanced
Encryption Standard) encryption. It runs the same APN (Access Point Name) software
as the existing T3000 data center appliances but in a smaller form factor,
according to a company statement. The appliance includes nine user-configurable
GE ports, two bypass port pairs, a management interface and an SSD (solid-state
As a result,

percent, and have greater reliability and application performance

years, enterprise IT managers have been dependent exclusively on expensive
Frame Relay or MPLS circuits for their four nines reliability, even though
public Internet connectivity has been widely available at a fraction of the
cost," Andrew Gottlieb, founder and CEO of Talari Networks, said in a
statement. "Talari's innovative approach and technology combines multiple
sources of public Internet bandwidth in parallel to deliver the same, or
better, quality than expensive WAN bandwidth, enabling enterprises to reduce
WAN expenses by up to 90 percent."
