What Bigleaf Does

Bigleaf Cloud-first SD-WAN is the next generation of Internet optimization – based on the natural redundancy found in leaf veins. It connects you through their plug and play router in your office, to their gateway clusters in the Cloud, providing end-to-end visibility and control.

Their Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) technology ensures that your business-critical applications (especially VoIP) are prioritized across your Internet connections, and that all traffic flows are routed over the best connection in real-time.

VoIP Protection With Bigleaf

Bigleaf Automatically Mitigates VoIP Issues

VoIP traffic has some of the most stringent performance requirements of all Internet traffic. Different VoIP implementations and codecs respond in varying ways to network issues, so performance may be poor and unstable.

The following shows the performance impact of several basic metrics on VoIP:

GOAL NOTICEABLE ISSUE UNUSABLE
PACKET LOSS 0.01% 0.5-2% 5%
LATENCY 20ms 50-100ms 200ms
JITTER 10ms 30-100ms 150ms

Bigleaf constantly monitors each circuit for packet loss, latency, and jitter. If they detect an issue, they’ll make changes to the routing and respond by changing the load balance of the circuits according to the severity of the problem:

SEVERITY EXAMPLE AVG RESPONSE
MINOR 1% PACKET LOSS 45 SECONDS
MAJOR 10% PACKET LOSS 8 SECONDS
OUTAGE 70% PACKET LOSS 3 SECONDS

Note: Response time is slower for less severe issues to prevent excessive movement of traffic between circuits and to allow for the activation of our dynamic QoS feature.

How Bigleaf Improves VoIP

How Bigleaf Improves VoIP

Dynamic QoS
Prioritizes VoIP and other real-time traffic across commodity Internet connections, even with varying bandwidth.

Bigleaf Enables High Performance VoIP

Bigleaf's Dynamic QoS feature detects and responds to changes in available circuit throughput when sensitive traffic could be affected, and prioritizes both inbound and outbound VoIP traffic. Their Dynamic QoS detects the bandwidth bottleneck in the path to and from the customer's site and adapts QoS policies to ensure traffic isn't buffered in QoS-unaware ISP routers.

Same IP Address Failover

Same IP Address Failover
The benefits of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) without the hassle and cost. Applications stay connected when a circuit fails.

Because Bigleaf handles public IP addressing in their cloud, real-time applications aren't interrupted during circuit outages and your VoIP calls stay intact. Before your traffic traverses the path between their core and your building, they encapsulate each packet in a tunnel which enables them to provide you with static IP addresses that don't change when your traffic moves between circuits.

Intelligent Load Balancing

Intelligent Load Balancing
If there are multiple connections, Bigleaf monitors the circuit conditions of each connection, adapting load balancing in real-time to match application traffic needs to circuit performance.

When one of your Internet circuits experiences issues such as packet loss, latency, jitter, congestion, or an outage, your VoIP call is moved to a higher-quality circuit in real-time. The Bigleaf monitoring system constantly measures circuit performance in both directions, evaluates traffic flows from your applications, and adapts to changing conditions in real-time based on algorithms and alarm thresholds.
