Bigleaf Networks Announces Automatic Optimization for Satellite Connectivity

Bigleaf’s real-time IP routing and prioritization systems are now specifically tuned for the performance profile of satellite connectivity
PORTLAND, Ore.–(December 16, 2016) Bigleaf Networks, the Cloud-first SD-WAN service that optimizes Internet and Cloud performance by dynamically choosing the best connection and adapting QoS in real-time, today announced new satellite-optimized adaptation within its SD-WAN software. Bigleaf’s patent-pending technology adds SD-WAN routing intelligence and prioritization to all underlying Internet connections, preventing outages and improving Cloud application performance. This new optimization for satellite connectivity further advances Bigleaf’s ability to provide optimal performance for sensitive applications when satellite circuits are in use. Bigleaf’s optimizations for satellite connectivity includes the following plug-and-play automatic features:
  • Prioritizing routing of real-time applications such as VoIP, point of sale (POS), virtual desktop, and chat, plus transactional traffic such as web browsing, electronic health records (EHR) and SaaS, over any available and healthy landline connections
  • Allowing less performance-sensitive bulk traffic such as patch updates and file transfers to be load balanced onto satellite connections
  • Maintaining real-time re-routing and prioritization over all circuits, including satellite, in the event of any performance issues like outages, brown-outs, or jitter spikes
These innovations combine with Bigleaf’s existing Dynamic QoS, Same-IP failover, and other features to provide the best possible Cloud and Internet-based application experience for Bigleaf customers. “Satellite is a great option where lower-latency circuits aren’t available with sufficient bandwidth” said Bigleaf Founder and CEO Joel Mulkey. “The challenge has always been how to optimally use real-time applications with satellite connectivity in the mix. With Bigleaf’s latest advance, customers can include satellite in their connectivity mix with confidence. Our SD-WAN platform will automatically route and prioritize traffic with intelligence that’s pre-tuned to the satellite performance profile and their application needs.”
