Bigleaf Networks and MegaPath Partner to Give VoIP Customers Visibility into Carrier Performance Issues and Real-time Optimization Capabilities

MegaPath becomes first VoIP and unified communications provider to join Bigleaf’s Cloud Assurance program

PORTLAND, Ore. & PLEASANTON, Calif.--()--Bigleaf Networks Inc., 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 partnership with MegaPath, a leading provider of voice, data, security and cloud services in North America, and the first VoIP and unified communications (UC) company to join the Bigleaf Cloud Assurance Partner Program.

Bigleaf developed its new Cloud Assurance Program to ensure that partner cloud applications achieve peak performance. Bigleaf’s and MegaPath’s joint customers will enjoy enhanced voice, data, and cloud services through Bigleaf’s performance analysis and optimization capabilities.

The Cloud Assurance Program centers around Bigleaf’s patent-pending Intelligent Load-Balancing and Dynamic Quality-of-Service (QoS) functionality. Unlike dual-WAN firewalls or DNS-based load-balancers, Bigleaf provides real-time failover and load-balancing with seamless mid-session re-routing based on ISP circuit quality. Bigleaf’s unique Dynamic QoS technology prioritizes VoIP and other business-critical applications across the public Internet. This innovation provides complete control of both download and upload traffic, and works across ISP circuits with variable bandwidth like cable. The Bigleaf Cloud Assurance Program incorporates:

  • Lab interoperability testing of QoS prioritization, load-balancing and seamless failover of the Assurance Partner’s application traffic.
  • Network peering, where appropriate, to ensure end-to-end QoS protection.
  • Enhanced support for the Assurance Partner’s customers through:
    • Bigleaf Web App visibility and reporting of latency, packet loss and jitter.
    • Joint support training and collaboration on troubleshooting efforts.

“MegaPath has a well-deserved reputation for providing a comprehensive, reliable suite of business communications and connectivity solutions for businesses of all sizes,” said Bigleaf Founder and CEO Joel Mulkey. “With an extensive reach and customer base, they are a tremendous addition to our Cloud Assurance Program, which gives its customers confidence that their Internet connectivity and Cloud applications are working together. We’re proud to have MegaPath as a partner.”

“As a member of the Cloud Assurance program, MegaPath will expand its performance monitoring and QoS optimization service offerings with Bigleaf’s plug-and-play network architecture that instantly improves access to all cloud services for an improved user experience,” said Kurt Hoffman, President of MegaPath. “Businesses that rely on MegaPath for business-critical VoIP and unified communications can enjoy an added measure of confidence knowing that they have extensive visibility into carrier connectivity issues that may impact application performance, combined with the intelligence to adapt and optimize in real-time.”
