Bigleaf’s updated Intelligent Load Balancing now supports application class policies, enabling more granular use of bandwidth-capped circuits like 4G/5G
Portland, OR – August 31, 2017
— Bigleaf Networks, the Cloud-first SD-WAN service that optimizes Internet and Cloud performance by dynamically choosing the best connection and adapting application prioritization in real-time, has released 4G/5G Optimization for its platform.
Bigleaf’s new 4G/5G Optimization factors in the unique performance and financial aspects of 4G/5G Internet services for customers building a multi-carrier Internet strategy. For customers looking for purpose-built connectivity to the Cloud, Bigleaf’s Cloud-first SD-WAN service unlocks the full capability of 4G/5G wireless as an additional network path.
“We’ve seen significant interest from customers looking for more flexibility in using 4G/5G wireless as part of the Bigleaf solution. We responded by adapting and evolving our platform beyond the industry norm of primary or backup,” said Bigleaf CEO, Joel Mulkey. “Our 4G/5G Optimization enables the perfect blend of application performance with reduced 4G/5G cost.”
For example, with Bigleaf’s 4G/5G Optimization, customers can now opt to intelligently load-balance VoIP and Point-of-Sale traffic over both a 4G/5G circuit and a terrestrial circuit in response to real-time circuit health, while limiting other traffic only to the terrestrial circuit. This ensures both the performance and reliability of the customer’s key cloud applications, while also acknowledging the metered expense of most 4G/5G services and limiting the associated financial exposure.
