Spectrotel, Inc., a leading national integrated solutions provider for enterprise businesses today announced their partnership with Bigleaf Networks, an industry leading Cloud-first Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) service that optimizes Internet and Cloud performance by dynamically choosing the best connection and adapting QoS in real time. “SD-WAN is all the buzz but with so many choices it is difficult for partners and customers to distinguish and understand all the differences between them, let alone figure out which is the best solution to meet their specific needs,” stated Ross Artale, President & COO. “The addition of Bigleaf to Spectrotel’s robust portfolio provides partners and customers a broad range of solutions and allows us to demonstrate the differences in order to recommend and design the ideal solution for their unique business challenge.” “We’re excited to be working with Spectrotel to combine the value of Bigleaf’s SD-WAN with their cloud offerings for real-time quality of service, load balancing, and uptime protection,” said Joel Mulkey, Bigleaf Founder and CEO. “With more applications running across customer networks all the time, Spectrotel customers need a solution built on intelligent software to protect their critical communication and collaboration applications. Spectrotel’s robust cloud solutions are a perfect match with our company focus.” “Bigleaf is somewhat unique, they focus their technology on managing the traffic between the edge devices and through the gateway for quality transport between edge devices, to the Internet and cloud applications,” stated Ross Artale. “The elegance of the Bigleaf solution is that it layers in the benefits of WAN optimization and fully autonomous QoS for voice and cloud applications without removal or change to the current security infrastructure.” With its robust portfolio and ability to virtualize the WAN across any transport, Spectrotel provides the customer and partner the most flexible and tailored end-to-end solution in the industry.
