Talari’s been making WANs better for eight years now, creating a THINKING SD-WAN that adapts in real time to changing conditions. Its patented approach puts intelligence in every packet and at every endpoint. It identifies packet loss, jitter, and the failure of any one network path, then uses all of the network’s capacity to reroute packets and keep your data flowing. Mission-critical apps like VoIP and VDI take priority and always deliver, while less time-sensitive traffic falls in line. For more details listen to the Packet Pushers’ conversation with John Dickey, Talari’s Co-Founder and CTO, or check them out at talari.com.
