Peplink Balance Routers Provide Bandwidth Allowance and Monitoring Statistics

the Peplink Balance 20 load balancing router

As of 2011, over 56% of ISPs have implemented some type of monthly data cap on internet usage, which can result in overage charges or potentially cause account throttling. Typically these overage charges are associated with wireless modem providers like Verizon and Sprint, which many businesses use for a backup connection when their primary ISP goes down (AKA "failover"). These ISP limitations make it crucial for companies to be able to easily monitor their data consumption to avoid additional charges. The Peplink Balance series (20, 30, 210, 310, 380, 580, 710 and 1350) provides data monitoring statistics in real time as well as by date, connection type, and individual clients connected to the network (to determine who is using large amounts of data).

Here are just a few of the unique features that you have access to when you use one of the Peplink Balance products:

Bandwidth Allowance Monitor: By enabling this feature, users can select specific WAN or USB connections and enable email notifications when a specific MB or GB threshold is reached. Users can also configure email notifications when they hit 75%/95% of their monthly allotment, and even terminate a connection after reaching a specified threshold. Depending on your monthly data reset date, you can also configure the router to reset itself on a specific day for a new month's data allowance.


Real-Time Monitoring:
Real-time monitoring allows system administrators to monitor all or select data connections to analysis traffic throughout the network. This information can be useful to determine if you may need to increase your connection speed of if you're paying to much for faster speeds that you never achieve.


Daily Usage: Daily usage monitoring allows you view all active WAN connections to determine how much data you've used on specific days. This information can help you detect any anomalies in data usage, and track down which computer transferred the large amount of data. 


Monthly Usage: This feature allows you to quickly check your monthly data consumption and compare it to previous months. This will allow system admins to quickly see if the company's data consumption is going up or down by each calendar month.
