Leading service delivery provider adds cloud-first SD-WAN solution to its portfolio
TBI is pleased to announce it has solidified a partnership with Bigleaf Networks, an over-the-top SD-WAN provider offering Same IP Address Failover, Intelligent Load Balancing, Dynamic QoS, and Plug-and-Play Provisioning.
Built for the channel, Bigleaf is 100 percent dedicated to an indirect sales model. As more businesses move to Cloud, VoIP, SaaS, and VDI solutions and leverage channel partners to identify the best solutions, Bigleaf’s “Cloud-First” SD-WAN becomes an obvious choice for both the customer and the channel partner.
Unlike box-only SD-WAN solutions, Bigleaf uses a split architecture that leverages both routers at the customer premise, as well as a dedicated gateway network built into major Internet peering hubs around the country. This gives end-to-end management and control over any Cloud-based traffic. For customers leveraging a VPN architecture for site-to-site connectivity, Bigleaf’s QoS and Same IP Failover platform will direct and control the tunnel traffic to provide a previously-unachievable level of VPN stability and performance.
Bigleaf prides itself on a unique plug-and-play deployment model that is dedicated to staying outside of the customer’s existing firewall with their onsite router. This allows for a very quick self-installation process, enabling the customer to leverage SD-WAN intelligence across their Internet environment without the complicated setup and installation procedures that many SD-WAN vendors require.
“We’re thrilled to begin this relationship with TBI and their extensive partner community,” said John Hogan, VP of Partner Sales & Business Development at Bigleaf. “For partners that value a vendor-neutral approach to telecom consulting, and like the idea of building carrier and physically diverse connectivity to the Cloud that is both cost-effective and robust, Bigleaf is a natural fit in the SD-WAN space.”
Through this relationship, TBI partners can now benefit from selling Bigleaf’s innovative SD-WAN technology. Partners get support from the industry’s strongest back office, which includes dedicated solution engineers to help with discovery, design and project management of Bigleaf SD-WAN deployments. They also benefit from sales enablement support to help them better position Bigleaf’s key differentiators to their customer base.
“Supporting customers that leverage multiple cloud environments is never an easy task. Couple that with multiple sites, lack of visibility into applications and a need to keep security within the customers hands, just makes for an ideal Bigleaf customer. We now have the ability to work in tandem with customers’ security appliances, resulting in a redundant and a resourceful network,” explains Jeff Newton, VP of Enterprise Sales and Engineering at TBI.
