Pepwave MAX Mobile Router

           The Pepwave MAX mobile router gives you the ultimate in mobile connectivity. With the ability to combine a variety of wireless services, the MAX gives you maximum reliability through automatic link failover and scalability with multi-WAN load balancing and SpeedFusion™ bandwidth bonding. The Pepwave MAX brings wireline reliability to environments where no other solution can.

SpeedFusionTM Bonding Technology Packet Level Bandwidth Bonding

SpeedFusion bandwidth bonding automatically distributes traffic across wireless links, increasing connection stability and making maximum use of all available bandwidth. And you can scale your bandwidth as you go simply by adding extra 4G LTE, 3G, or other wireless connections at any time. The MAX automatically switches to lower priority connections when primary connections fail due to signal or coverage issues. Your connection stays fast, and you stay seamlessly connected and productive.

Seamless Failover Don’t Let Stalled Connections Slow You Down.

The MAX automatically switches to lower priority connections when primary connections fail due to signal or coverage issues. And thanks to persistent session roaming powered by SpeedFusion technology, failover between fixed and mobile links is completely seamless. With other technologies, failover terminates existing connections, creating costly downtime. With SpeedFusion persistent session roaming, you won’t miss a beat when your MAX switches between connections.

Certified Industrial Durability Go Where Your Work Takes You. Without Worrying about Your Networking Equipment.

Built to withstand temperatures from -40 to 65°C and featuring ESD/surge protection for all ports, the Pepwave MAX is designed for worry-free performance everywhere you roam.

Embedded 4G LTE or World-Mode 3G Modems GSM HSPA and CDMA EVDO. Standard.

Leave your external GSM and CDMA modems behind. The Pepwave MAX BR1 and HD2 features integrated 4G LTE or world-mode 3G modems for instant connectivity anywhere you go. Need more flexibility? The MAX 700 features USB interface supporting 100+ USB modems from carriers worldwide. And because the MAX is easy to configure and shock/vibration resistant, you can give your mechanic a break.

Military-Grade VPN Encryption  256-bit AES Encrypted VPN Bonding. High Security for the Open Road.

Our revolutionary SpeedFusion technology allows you to use all available Internet links to load balance and failover your traffic through 256-bit AES encrypted VPN tunnels. Since our SpeedFusion technology is designed from the ground up for multiple Internet connections, you can be assured of a secure connection wherever you are.

Dual-Radio Wi-Fi Functionality Wi-Fi Connectivity Is a Two-Way Street.

Cap- and Cost-Aware Routing Keep Your Eyes on the Road. Not Your Odometer.

The Pepwave Max’s bandwidth usage monitor allows you to prioritize connections by cost and data allowance. The MAX automatically monitors data volume and switches connections to minimize your cost while maximizing your speed, so you can stop worrying about expensive data overages and just drive.

Centralized Management  Manage Your Entire Fleet from a Single Dashboard.
