Here is a claim worth investigating. At DEMOfall 07 Talari Networks introduced a networking technology that it said will do for enterprise WANs what RAID did for storage. The technology can deliver a network with 30 to 100 times the bits per dollar, reducing WAN costs by 40 to 9o percent with greater reliability than existing corporate WANs, according to CEO Andrew Gottlieb.

Talari's Adaptive Private Networking leverages “reasonable quality” networks—such as public Internet connections via DSL, cable, WiFi, WiMax, leased lines, Metro Ethernet.

Talari algorithms determine the best path for each type of traffic as well as buffering, retransmission, reordering, encryption, per packet encapsulation, sequencing and duplicate compression. The company claims that even with connections that aren't as reliable as presumed for Frame Relay of MPLS, it can deliver greater reliability.

The Talari Networks T700 appliance has a suggested list price of $7,995.
