|Take Control of Your Wi-Fi Network|
|Built-in WLAN Controller
Simplify your network management by controlling your AP One access point using a centralized admin interface built into the Peplink Balance. Just connect the AP One to the network and it will be detected by the Balance automatically, allowing you manage and setup your access point without an extra AP controller device.
Pepwave has designed the AP One to provide maximum coverage. Our specially designed Wi-Fi radio consistently provides high power, reaching an 8x greater area than a typical access point. And thanks to its rugged metal enclosure, the AP One will withstand demanding commercial and industrial environments.
|Easy Wi-Fi Portal
Peplink’s WLAN solution features a built-in captive portal, which allows you to provide Wi-Fi hotspot service to your customers easily, without extra equipment. From showing a splash screen for free users to accept service terms to creating a user login for your paid customers, you can easily customize your Wi-Fi portal in just a few clicks.
|Unified Network Management
By combining the Peplink Balance with our WLAN solution, you can manage all network connections, local client access, and user bandwidth policy using one single package. Administrators can monitor and generate reports on AP activity and bandwidth consumption, giving you complete and easy control over your network.

|Simple Setup and Management
With our WLAN solution, advanced networking is a simple plug and play affair. Pepwave AP One devices will work with the Peplink Balance without additional configuration, and setting up enterprise-grade WLAN or hotspot service takes only a few minutes.

|As more and more business takes place outside the office, telecom providers have responded by boosting the speed and reliability of their 3G networks, in addition to rolling out innovations like 4G, LTE, and WiMax in an increasing number of markets. But no matter how quickly cellular data bandwidth and quality improve, mobile business always seems to demand more. From live video streaming and conferencing to ever-larger file transfers and real-time collaboration, today’s mobile applications strain even the latest and greatest cellular technology to its limits. The result is fluctuating data quality, unpredictable data rates, and widespread frustration, in addition to costly overage charges.|
And then there’s security to consider. Though many businesspeople would like to expand mobile operations, they’re concerned about the cost of extra VPN equipment necessary to encrypt sensitive business data over cellular connections. Because of this and the inadequate speed and reliability of current cellular technology, businesses are reluctant to rely on cellular connections for demanding and mission-critical applications.
|SpeedFusion Cellular Bandwidth Bonding
Turbocharges Mobile VPNs.
SpeedFusion, the technology at the heart of every Balance Multi-WAN and MAX Mobile router, bonds the bandwidth from multiple cellular connections. You get faster and more reliable mobile VPNs in every application. Plus, all your data is secured by military-grade encryption, and data volume is monitored and controlled to keep you under your usage cap and within budget.
|Get the Speed You Need On the Road.
SpeedFusion cellular bandwidth bonding automatically aggregates all connected 3G/4G/LTE/WiMAX links to give you fast data transfers, smooth HD video, and blazing performance wherever you go. Need more speed? Just add cellular connections and let SpeedFusion take care of the details.
|Enjoy Wired Reliability Without the Wires.
SpeedFusion bonds cellular connections from multiple providers, continuously monitoring link connectivity and automatically switching to healthy connections in the event of link failure. Your network stays up and running, and you stay open for business.
|Lock Down Cellular Data Transfers.
SpeedFusion locks down wireless data transfers with military-grade security. All transmissions are encrypted using a 256-bit AES algorithm and then randomly scattered over multiple paths, becoming readable only at their destination. No matter how sensitive your data, you can rest easy knowing that SpeedFusion is always working in the background to keep it from prying eyes.
|Keep Your Costs Under Control Automatically.
Our bandwidth usage monitor makes it easy to stay within budget by allowing you to prioritize connections by speed, cost, and data allowance. When you’re in danger of exceeding a data cap, SpeedFusion notifies an administrator, and can automatically disconnect the line at 100% data allowance usage or switch to another connection.
|Do More on the Road with SpeedFusion.
The speed, reliability, and security delivered by SpeedFusion open up a wide range of new mobile VPN applications in demanding, mission-critical fields, such as newscasting and public safety. In addition, transferring large files, such as those generated by digital production, photography, and POS activities, becomes practical and profitable wherever your mobile workforce roams.

In the past, Rob Klopotoski, Endicott’s Network Manager, tried offerings from other vendors, but couldn’t find the right mix of dependability, features, and ease-of-use. Some solutions required expensive and time-consuming architecture changes, something Klopotoski wanted to avoid. For Endicott, the best-case scenario was a solution that provided rock-solid load balancing and failover, drop-in deployment, and LAN bypass.
When Klopotoski discovered Peplink and the Balance series of Multi-WAN routers, he knew he’d found the solution he’d been looking for – plus some benefits he hadn’t expected.
“The primary driver to purchase a load-balancer for our Internet lines was the ability to get into our campus from offsite in the event of a failover, and so that our most important servers would still be accessible,” said Klopotoski. “Since the provider we had in the past had intermittent issues with providing service, it was important to have a backup plan.”
But the Balance 710 quickly became more than a backup plan, assuming DNS server, inbound and outbound NAT mapping, and outbound policy duties.
“My experience with this device over the last year-and-a-half has been very positive,” notes Klopotoski. “We have nearly 2500 students using the Internet at night, and this box has easily handled the load.”
“Because this system handles our website traffic, mail server, staff and student portal, online course activities, and registration, we cannot afford any downtime,” said Klopotoski. “In the event we’ve had a line go down, the Peplink has made those failures nearly invisible to our users.”
And then there’s cost, both initial and continuing. According to Klopotoski, the Balance delivers on both fronts, featuring a very reasonable price point, few support issues, and the ongoing savings of being able to use low-cost links for backup and failover.
Today, Klopotoski couldn’t be happier he chose the Balance to serve as the cornerstone for Endicott College’s campus network. According to this network manager, the Balance more than earns its high grades at Endicott: “I’ve gotten pretty much everything I’ve needed out of it,” Klopotoski said. “I really can’t think of anything else I’d want it to do.”
