Bigleaf’s Cloud-Access Network is a purpose-built IP network that we own and operate. Our carrier-grade routers and dedicated servers connect to multiple upstream transit circuits and diverse dedicated private backbone paths. All of our Points of Presence, or “POPs” are built into major internet peering centers, or “hubs”, providing the best possible connectivity.
This platform is built specifically to deliver our SD-WAN service, so it doesn’t suffer from the compromises in network architecture and management required of other networks. For example, telecom networks also run MPLS, which adds complexity and more risk of bugs and outages; and content based networks are optimized for serving high-volume data in one direction rather than business-critical applications like VoIP.
