SD-WAN for The Cloud

Bigleaf SD-WAN optimizes business Internet for access to Cloud applications like VoIP, VDI, and SaaS.  We connect our customers through a plug-and-play router at their office to gateway clusters in the Cloud, providing end-to-end visibility and control.  The end result gives your customers:

  • Intelligent load-balancing across up to 4 connections from different Providers
  • Bi-directional QoS capability over coax, DSL, wireless – any Internet circuit
  • Same IP failover of traffic between circuits without dropping the session
  • Real-time App Site metrics on packet loss, latency, jitter, throughput, and usage 

Bigleaf’s SD-WAN solution is perfect for small, mid-sized, and distributed-Enterprise customers that rely on cloud applications to run their business.

Specific focus areas for positioning Bigleaf

Anytime you need QoS and Same IP failover over to ensure that critical Cloud applications are prioritized and stay live, regardless of issues with the underlying internet connections.

Customer pain today – VoIP call quality issues, challenges with BGP deployment, Virtual Desktop issues

Deploy Bigleaf to immediately fix these issues.

MPLS replacement – As customers move their key applications out to the Cloud, their site-to-site connectivity needs are diminishing.  Given the high expense and limited scalability of MPLS, many customers are turning to a VPN architecture to address their remaining site-to-site connectivity needs.  With Bigleaf’s SD-WAN optimization, we can direct and control the customer’s VPN traffic to provide a previously-un-achievable level of VPN stability and performance.  Bigleaf’s system will:

  • Ensure the customer’s VPN rides the most stable ISP connection
  • Failover the VPN tunnels when necessary without dropping the VPN sessions
  • Prioritize the VPN tunnel traffic above other bulk traffic (like YouTube videos or large file transfers)
  • Prioritize the VPN tunnel traffic above other bulk traffic (like YouTube videos or large file transfers)

Cloud Migration Strategy Discussion

  • Introducing Bigleaf to your customer is much more than a single product opportunity. Use Bigleaf as the catalyst to begin a proactive Cloud Migration Strategy discussion with your customer.
  • “The cloud is only as good as your connection.”
  • Bigleaf serves as the foundation for a smart cloud migration strategy.
  • With Bigleaf deployed, your customer’s comfort zone for Cloud Apps will broaden, and so will your opportunity set for add-on sales down the road.

Single Circuit customer leveraging Cloud Apps. Bigleaf will provide:

  • QoS to prioritize voice and other latency-sensitive traffic.
  • Bigleaf App Site intelligence for metrics on packet loss, latency, jitter, and throughput.
  • True plug & play functionality for future circuit additions (no need for IP address changes).

Customer with primary/backup configuration

  • Get more out of a second connection than just backup – why pay for a service you hope to never use?

How Bigleaf Compares with other SD-WAN vendors

Bigleaf is the leading Provider of SD-WAN services for the Cloud due to several unique features:

Outside the firewall

Bigleaf’s onsite router drops in seamlessly outside the customer’s existing firewall, so there’s no need to rip out and replace their current trusted firewalls or change their current security story.

Cloud Gateways

While most SD-WAN providers are focused on site-to-site connectivity, Bigleaf tunnels all of the customer’s Internet traffic out to Gateway Clusters that are located in major peering centers around the country.  This gives us end-to-end management and control over the customer’s Internet traffic, enabling us to intelligently prioritize and failover Cloud-based applications.

Plug and Play

Easy, self-install averaging 10 minutes.

Dynamic QoS

Patent-pending QoS system that responds in real-time to variable throughput circuits (like coax) to eliminate packet loss in the carrier’s core routers.
