Why choose Peplink or Pepwave hardware for your business?
(Check out some of Pepwave/Peplink's customers:)
Professional Load Balancing:
The entry level Peplink models (Balance 20, 30) support five load balance algorithms and higher end models (Balance 210, 310, 380, 580, 710, 1350) support seven algorithms. These algorithms allow you to fine tune each network connection and ensure you have complete redundancy. You can easily setup specific connections for VPN traffic, VOIP or PBX systems and have other connections handle web traffic.
Ultimate WAN management also ensures that you'll be using the least expensive connections at your office. For example, you can prioritize a Cable/DSL as first priority, 3G/4G modem as a secondary and leave your expensive leased line as a third, forth etc backup or overflow connection!
Complete VPN Solutions:
Peplink offers industry standard IPSec VPN tunneling and PPTP VPN server capability for secure access between branch offices. Equipment is cross compatible with VPN technology from popular manufactures like Cisco, SonicWALL, Juniper and more. This means you don't need to replace all your equipment and Peplink gear can be easily integrated into an existing infrastructure.
Higher end Peplink models also support Site-to-Site SpeedFusion technology, which allows you to bond and aggregate bandwidth between multiple links. This technology is exclusive to Peplink/Pepwave equipment and would be required at sites where you wish to bond multiple links. SpeedFusion technology allows you to get several cheaper links vs. paying more for a dedicated MPLS line. For example, checkout SumoLogic's story, which allowed them to replaced a dedicated 10/10Mbit line costing them $1,500/mo with a Cable modem and bonded DSL connection for $530/mo giving them 125/25Mbit!

High Availability Mode:
In a network environment you can have as many ISP connections as you want, but if something goes wrong with your hardware you'll soon find yourself waiting for a replacement creating downtime. High Availability mode allows you to create a 1+1 Backup Mode, which ensures that your network will remain active in the unlikely event of a hardware failure.
Within the Peplink Balance routers you'll find a firewall capable of allowing or denying specific protocols by single addresses, or across the entire network with full event logging. You'll also find intrusion detection and DoS prevention for protection from denial of service attacks on your web server.
What if you already have a firewall in place? Higher end Peplink models starting with the Balance 210 feature a drop-in mode, which allows you to quickly deploy equipment without altering your existing firewall. After enabling drop-in mode place the Peplink Balance router behind your firewall and you can integrate the equipment within 10 minutes!
Advanced QoS Control:
With advanced QoS controls you can easily configure specific applications or protocols to have priority bandwidth. For example you could give your VoIP and WEB high priority while keeping streaming applications at a normal or lower priority. You can also define management, staff and guest users to manage bandwidth as a general group, or create individual bandwidth limits.
QoS settings are also adjustable based on specific ISP's so you can keep the same rules across all connections, or favor specific ISP's for different applications. For example a lower latency connection may be given higher priority for real-time applications where a higher latency connection with more bandwidth is favored for video streaming.
Full bandwidth monitoring and alerts:
With more and more ISP's moving toward tiered based pricing bandwidth is becoming a hot commodity. Peplink Balance routers allow you to easily setup alerts or completely disable a connection after hitting a set amount of bandwidth. The QoS and Load Balance algorithms mentioned earlier allow you to use the expensive links for specific tasks, and the bandwidth monitoring ensures you don't get hit with a large data bill.
Data can be tracked in monthly, daily, hourly and in real-time to get an overview of where your traffic is generated. This can be useful if you notice a spike in data usage from a specific IP address. This could identify an employee wasting company time by streaming video, or identify potential Malware in a computer.
WLAN Control & Access Points:
The Peplink Balance 380 and above feature a built in WLAN controller, which allows you to easily manage all your Pepwave AP One's. You can control up to 500 Pepwave access points with an enterprise license to control every employee's wireless experience. Pepwave access points can throw out some serious WiFi range too, the AP One has a 630mW radio and can go upwards of 2Watts when powerboost is enabled!
This translates into a wireless range about eight times greater than a typically access point.
