Zycko becomes Talari's first distributor in Europe and will distribute the Californian vendor's adaptive private networking (APN) technology across the continent. The APN kit aims to boost end users' bandwidth by taking advantage of network resources from a range of ISPs. Talari claims its technology offers affordable support for applications such as IP telephony and videoconferencing.
Zycko group sales and marketing director David Galton-Fenzi claimed the Talari offering was a perfect complement to his firm's existing WAN optimisation portfolio, which includes Riverbed.
“Talari’s corporate WAN virtualisation solutions are a welcome arrival for our resellers," he said. "This new partnership means that we can offer our European resellers networking solutions that work in harmony to make their IT functions as efficient, reliable and cost-effective as possible.”
Talari's range of Mercury APN products includes the T3000, designed for use in datacentres and company headquarters. The T700 is built for remote offices, while the T200 is pitched at the small office/home office market. The vendor's vice president of worldwide sales Tom Pettigrew claimed the technology could help firms slash their WAN outlay.
"Corporate WAN has remained fairly static over the years," he said. "But our pioneering APN technology means that businesses can save between 40 and 90 perc ent on their monthly WAN costs while maintaining greater reliability than any single-provider private network. Zycko’s value-added approach in Europe makes it the perfect Talari distributor.”
