Telecom Master Agent's Clients Now Have Access to Bigleaf's Cloud Optimization Services

PORTLAND, OR--(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 X4 Solutions, a premier telecom master agent featuring a network of more than 70+ carriers, 300 data centers worldwide and dozens of cloud services providers.

Chicago-based X4 Solutions has agreed to add Bigleaf to its extensive, nationwide network, allowing sales partners to offer customers Bigleaf's patent-pending technology, which improves the performance of VoIP services and cloud-based applications via intelligent load balancing across multiple Internet connections.

"By welcoming us into its network, X4 Solutions adds a cloud services partner that delivers a distinct advantage to customers -- an intelligent networking strategy that ensures cloud-based applications like VOIP, virtual desktop and SaaS solutions don't suffer from common performance issues," said John Hogan, VP of Partner Sales and Business Development at Bigleaf.
