Enables Technology Services Distributor to Offer Bigleaf’s Cloud Optimization Capabilities to Sales Partners

PORTLAND, Ore. (Marketwired – Oct 20, 2015) – Bigleaf Networks, the intelligent networking service that optimizes Internet and cloud performance by dynamically choosing the best connection based on real-time usage and diagnostics, today announced a new channel partnership with Intelisys, the nation’s leading technology services distributor of business communications services including voice, data, access, cable, collaboration, wireless and cloud.

Petaluma, Calif.-based Intelisys has agreed to add Bigleaf to its extensive, nationwide networks of telecom and cloud vendors and service providers. The technology services distributor’s Sales Partners will now be able to offer their customers Bigleaf’s patent-pending technology, which improves the performance of VoIP services and cloud-based applications by intelligent load-sharing across multiple Internet connections.

“For any agent in the industry that’s looking to establish a more intelligent approach to a cloud migration strategy for their customers, Bigleaf Networks is the answer,” stated John Hogan, VP of Partner Sales and Business Development at Bigleaf. “We set the table for that discussion by establishing a secure, redundant and load-balanced connectivity foundation, which facilitates wider cloud adoption.”

“We’re not just an additional product in our partners’ portfolios — we’re a wonderful excuse to have a thorough and informative cloud migration discussion with customers. This why we’re excited to partner with Intelisys,” Hogan continued.

Bigleaf’s plug-and-play managed service offering includes:

  • Intelligent load-balancing across multiple Internet paths from different ISPs
  • Dynamic Quality-of-Service (QoS) capability to prioritize VoIP and other latency-sensitive traffic over commodity Internet
  • Same IP failover capability to allow for uninterrupted VoIP and virtual desktop sessions while moving between circuits
  • Real-time intelligence on circuit latency, packet loss, jitter and throughput

“We are extremely pleased to begin this partnership with Bigleaf Networks,” said Mike McKenney, VP, Supplier Sales, Intelisys. “Cloud is an ever-growing opportunity, and Bigleaf Networks addresses a tremendous challenge for our Sales Partners’ SMB and mid-sized customers that want to access the cloud through cost-effective and ubiquitous broadband circuits.”
