Architecture Overview


We believe that access to the cloud requires a new generation of internet connectivity. You shouldn’t have to worry about internet connections, performance and outages. Our unique network architecture and features allow you to optimize application performance across each ISP connection, and also to leverage the strength of multiple ISPs, all with the simplicity of a single plug-and-play connection.

Natural Networking

Bigleaf Architecture

Bigleaf uses the natural architecture and intelligence found in leaves – their veins provide redundancy to all areas of the leaf, and the distribution of nutrients is load balanced. We apply those same organic principles to your internet connections. Your traffic is tunneled over the leaf “veins” (your multiple internet connections), between our gateway clusters and our on-site router in your building. From there we provide you a single optimized and redundant handoff.

If, for example, one of your internet connections gets cut by a backhoe, your traffic is automatically routed over the other redundant path(s). When each of your internet connections are healthy we intelligently aggregate your traffic across all of the connections to provide you with the highest possible throughput. Our proprietary algorithms feed on detailed monitoring data from our custom Network Monitoring Systems, allowing routing changes to take place seamlessly within 4 seconds of changing circuit or traffic conditions.
