Bigleaf Networks Announces Automatic Optimization for Satellite Connectivity
[Via Satellite 12-20-2016] Bigleaf Networks, a cloud-first Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) service that optimizes internet and cloud performance by dynamically choosing the best connection and adapting Quality of Service (QoS) in real-time, 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.
Bigleaf’s optimizations for satellite connectivity includes the following plug-and-play automatic features:
- Prioritizing routing of real-time applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP), Point of Sale (POS), virtual desktop, and chat, plus transactional traffic such as web browsing, Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Software as a Service (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 optimizations combine with Bigleaf’s existing Dynamic QoS, Same-IP failover, and other features.
