Talari Networks is a San Jose, CA-based networking equipment company. The company develops a line of rack mountable appliances designed to help businesses connect and manage multiple WAN connections. The products act as both load balancing and redundancy controllers, allowing aggregation of private, high and low cost Internet connections to improve bandwidth, while monitoring the status of the links to maintain optimal network and application performance.


Talari Networks was founded in 2007 by Andy Gottlieb and John Dickey, former colleagues at Applied Micro.[1] Gottlieb became the company’s first CEO, and Dickey became Vice President of Engineering. The company launched its initial beta product in early 2008.[2] In 2011, Emerick Woods was named the company’s CEO.[3]


The company’s main products are the Adaptive Private Networking (APN) appliances. The rack-mountable devices allow companies to combine multiple WAN connections, such as private MPLS service, with lower cost public Internet links using DSL, cable, and wireless services.

The devices identify link failures and network impairments such as high jitter, delay and packet loss, and reroute traffic accordingly. Coordinating multiple bandwidth sources adds network redundancy and improves application performance.

There are five different core models, supporting bandwidth from 28 Mbit/s to 6 Gbit/s, and designed for environments ranging from small branch offices to data centers and corporate headquarters.

The devices can be managed locally or remotely using the company's APN software. An off-board Network Management System (NMS) and a local management tool are also available.[4]


Talari's line of networking technology has been awarded 14 patents.[5]

Patents #8,125,907 on February 28, 2012, #8,274,891 on September 25, 2012, and #8,644,164 on February 4, 2014 are entitled "Flow-based adaptive private network with multiple WAN-paths."[6] These patents describe a) systems using bandwidth allocation among a plurality of paths by quantifying performance and allocating bandwidth by path accordingly, and b) the methods and automation involved in conducting such systems.

Patents #8,452,846 on May 31, 2013, and #8,775,547 on July 8, 2014 are entitled "Adaptive private network asynchronous distributed shared memory services."[7][8] These patents describe how a highly predictable network can be achieved using public and private IP networks.
