Tallac Networks Introduces a New Level of SD-Branch Remote Site Automation
Rocklin, California -Monday, January 28th, 2019 – Tallac Networks, a leader in cloud-based software-defined networking, today announced availability of its new SD-Branch solution that delivers a new level of remote site automation for customers’ branch offices providing increased uptime and business continuity for business critical applications and faster responsiveness and increased management efficiency via a robust and low cost monthly cloud service.
The Tallac SD-Branch ECP100-5P is a cloud-based device that integrates an internet gateway, gigabit POE switching capabilities, and AC power control and automation with LTE/4G cellular modem failover capabilities into a new class of device delivering branch office automation. The Tallac SD-Branch ECP100-5P is managed via the Tallac Cloud – a proven cloud-based solution that provides configuration, zero touch installation, and robust management and automation of your network within minutes.
Tallac’s SD-Branch solution delivers a new level of remote site automation to branch offices delivering the skills of your best onsite IT tech via a low cost automated 24 X 7 remote cloud service. Key benefits of the Tallac SD-Branch solution include:
· Automated WAN Recovery: The ECP100-5P will continuously monitor WAN and internet connectivity and will initiate an automated power cycle of the internet modem and router to recover internet access in the event of an internet connectivity issue. The automated routine will notify the administrator and can be configured for each branch office situation including specific number of retry attempts and wait times before each power cycle. The ECP100-5P will also provide ongoing WAN and internet monitoring and statistics.
· Automated Remote Power Control: The ECP100-5P allows remote power cycling and can be configured to initiate power cycles remotely on command, based on activities or events, or at specific times that can be repeated on a regular scheduled cycle. Remote power reboots provide improved responsiveness and uptime at the branch office. Performing regularly scheduled power cycles can also improve overall performance and reliability of the network and schedules can be customized per device or site. With the ECP100-5P, it is also easy to configure a schedule for when power is available to specific devices to enable customization and better security in the branch office or remote location.
· Automated Failover to LTE/4G: The ECP100-5P is able to detect when the normal internet connection is unavailable and can be configured to automatically redirect specific business critical traffic (specific virtual networks) to an LTE/4G connection to provide business continuity for important business critical applications.
· Discovery and Secure Access to Networked Devices: The ECP100-5P and Tallac’s SD-Branch Cloud Management will discover all networked devices in the branch office and provides secure VPN access. The cloud service will be used to establish a secure connection to the LAN allowing access to the local network, web UI, and console of any type of networked device such as printers, local storage, routers, and security devices.
Tallac SD-Branch allows customers and MSPs to rapidly design and deploy a complete low-cost automated branch office solution that provides:
· Secure LAN Services: The Tallac SD-Branch solution provides distinct secure LAN services for virtual and physical services supporting mobile users, guests, VoIP, security, IoT devices, and other networked devices and applications.
· Easy Orchestration of Automated Policies: With the Tallac SD-Branch solution it is easy to configure and manage automated policies across WiFi, Wired, Ethernet, Gateway and across any connected AC powered devices enabling intelligence in the cloud and automated action and policies to be implemented in the branch office.
The capabilities of the ECP100-5P offer faster responsiveness, better uptime and more efficiency for MSPs and customers:
- “The Remote Power control feature is fantastic to have as an option for business continuity and efficiency. With this capability we have been able to remotely reboot/restart devices to keep business critical applications running without having to send an IT tech onsite. Being able to do this at 6AM remotely to resolve the issue within minutes has been a lifesaver” said Jeff Zimbalist, CEO of Applied Technology Solutions.
- “The remote site automation capabilities of the Tallac SD-Branch solution have improved the ability to support our customers more efficiently and cost effectively and also allow us to provide new capabilities to improve uptime and business continuity of devices and applications at the site”, continues Jeff Zimbalist, CEO of Applied Technology Solutions.
- “If an issue can be solved by a simple reset of the DSL modem, which is the solution most of the time, the ECP100-5P can do this automatically and remotely. This saves valuable time in restoring the internet, especially if no one is on site capable of diagnosing the issue and performing the DSL modem reset” commented Guy Herriott, Owner of Fenton Herriott Vineyards . “The ECP100-5P plays a critical role in helping to ensure our internet and customer credit card sales are up and running without having to have a local IT expert at the winery” adds Guy “which allows us to focus on what we are passionate about - the wine!”
