Likelihood to Recommend

Bigleaf

Bigleaf is great for getting good performance out of two mediocre ISPs. Bigleaf is great for getting the combined bandwidth of two or more ISPs without having to subscribe to higher tiers with the ISP. I can't imagine Bigleaf would do much good for a business with only one ISP. Reporting with Bigleaf is helpful in documenting any issues with an ISP - I can show an ISP performance history if we experience a problem.

Cisco Meraki SD-WAN

I would recommend Cisco Meraki SD-WAN to my colleagues in the scenario of a big corporate with 2 or 3 IPS and small branches over the world where they can’t have specialist in case of a failure. The platform can be managed from a single point through the dashboard and make a simple or profound testing and troubleshooting without losing any connectivity. It is the best solution that will save you money and time

Pros

Bigleaf

  • Does not add a security layer - We have our own security layer and did not want an additional one.
  • Combines bandwidth from multiple ISPs to provide a bigger pipe.

  • The natting function works really well. Even if you are behind a router with NAT, it still translates the traffic.
  • Security is a big benefit as you can define that only certain elements go across the VPN (SD-WAN).

Cons

Bigleaf

  • I can't think of anything to add here. It perfectly meets our needs!

  • Some features only support can change, VPN controls.
  • Limited customization, Meraki model is simple and easy, customization/options and complexity.
  • Visibility with insight is extra.

Any time we've had a problem, Bigleaf support has been readily available in English. Support seems competent, and when one hardware device failed we were quickly provided with a replacement

Fast and efficient. The only issue currently is that the support is only overseas support and not in South Africa, which causes delays in resolution for some cases. Escalating issues is quite simple and the opening of new cases from the dashboard is easy. I have never had a support issue that could not be resolved.

Alternatives Considered

Bigleaf

Bigleaf doesn't add a security layer. Competitors we looked at all bundled in security from Cisco or Fortinet, and we didn't want to learn another product and have a competing security layer. With Bigleaf we are able to leverage our existing security solution.

We considered staying with MPLS over private circuits, but the cost was prohibitive. We also considered going with a more traditional VPN configuration using the ASA5500-X series for VPN head-end. The Meraki MX SD-WAN seemed a better all-around fit for a modern network.
