our network is experiencing business and technical demands driven by the explosion of critical applications, cloud services, and mobile devices. Gone unchecked, that demand can stress your bandwidth having negative consequences on your VoIP phone services, causing packet loss, latency, and jitter.
Meet network demands
Broadvoice Edge, an SD-WAN offering sized for your business, ensures that your environment is VoIP Ready by adding a layer of intelligence into the network. With Broadvoice Edge, phone calls are monitored on a packet-by-packet basis to provide better call quality. With it, we can support a combination of broadband circuits including cable, DSL, fiber, and even MPLS.
Automatic failover, intelligent load balancing and more
Broadvoice Edge provides blackout and brownout protection for voice calls by dynamically sending phone calls over multiple paths. Phone calls in progress stay up when one Internet connection goes down.
Broadvoice Edge allows you to replace private and MPLS connections with lower-cost high-speed bandwidth without sacrificing quality and gain full connection redundancy when combined with multiple Internet connections.
INTELLIGENT LOAD BALANCING
Broadvoice Edge will automatically combine multiple Internet connections, allowing you to access otherwise unused bandwidth on standby connections.
SMART QoS AND MONITORING
Broadvoice Edge will monitor phone calls on a packet-by-packet basis and correct voice issues over each Internet connection. Broadvoice Edge continuously computes quality scores to assess voice performance and provides administrators with a comprehensive before-and-after view into behavior on individual links.
DYNAMIC APP STEERING
App aware per packet steering allows your app’s to simultaneously use your redundant data connections. Apps use the aggregated bandwidth as a single flow and don’t fail when an individual connection fails. Problem solved!

Can I bring my own device?
Yes you can. There is no reason to replace good hardware. Broadvoice has taken the guesswork out of router selection. Because we know that quality of service (QoS) is paramount to your business, we have carefully selected and tested a set of dependable routers suitable for supporting high-quality VoIP conversations.
The routers recommended here have been tested internally and work reliably with our services. However, given the constantly updated firmware and physical changes made by manufacturers and the nature of cloud-based services, Broadvoice cannot control the final configuration of the hardware or your computer systems/networks, or promise that any given router will work with your system, or guarantee that our information is up to date.
