Bigleaf Uses SD-Wan to Improve VoIP Speed and Reliability


Bigleaf has managed to overcome many of these challenges through cloud-first SD-WAN solutions that offer a superior quality of service that includes sound, reliable calls, and competitive uptime.

Early on in the history of Voice over Internet Protocol technology, designers and businesses had high hopes for the potential of these systems to revolutionize communication. VoIP promised to do away with systems that relied on hardware that would quickly become obsolete. However, VoIP technology continued to be plagued by a variety of problems that caused it to fall short of its early promise.

A big part of the problem was that internet connections simply weren’t enough to offer reliability and handle high volume demands. 

A Fail-Safe Approach to VoIP

Even the latest VoIP solutions from some companies don’t offer the level of performance needed to operate in today’s competitive and global workplace. Clear communication is an essential part of a collaboration, especially when businesses are reaching well beyond the confines of their office to partner with collaborators around the world. A dropped call can not only cause delays and frustrations, it can also reflect poorly on the company.

Bigleaf has taken VoIP performance and reliability one step further by optimizing internet performance with SD-WAN technology. By providing a single IP address across multiple ISP’s, they are able to keep calls intact even when there is a problem with the internet. Real-time applications will continually run because the system will move VoIP traffic to a healthy connection outside the firewall for a failsafe backup that provides unbeatable performance.

Managing Heavy Traffic

Bigleaf’s SD-WAN architecture can host unique solutions to manage connection traffic that can cause reduced VoIP reliability. The company’s system routes calls over the cleanest ISP connection at any given time for optimal performance. Instead of manually patching problems, Bigleaf uses the cloud to offer redundant gateway clusters, which provides an automatic load that effectively addresses bottlenecks and reroutes all traffic for customers with multiple connections in the case of an internet failure. Data will always travel the quickest route possible even when traffic is at its peak for the fastest uptime on the market.

With Bigleaf’s SD-WAN technology, customers can use the cloud to manage their VoIP and enjoy the best in internet calling. Businesses can feel confident that Bigleaf already has a solution in place for challenges they may face. This cutting-edge technology is allowing users to gain a competitive edge with fast uptimes and reliable calls that allow businesses to keep pace with today’s increasingly competitive markets.
