Peplink Balance 2500
The Peplink Balance 2500 is an extremely advanced business Multi-WAN router that is particularly suited for large corporations, educational environments, events and trade shows where a fast and stable network is a must. This router supports as many as 13 Internet connections and has a capacity of 5000 to 20,000+ users.
Increase network data speeds, reliability and flexibility while lowering connectivity costs with Peplink Internet Load Balancing technology. The Peplink Balance 2500 can distribute traffic from various Internet connections and router data using seven intelligent algorithms:
- Lowest Latency; Get fast response time when loading applications
- Enforced; Limit outbound traffic to a specific connection
- Persistence; No barriers to data traffic
- Least Used; Choose the best connection + bandwidth
- Weighted Balance; Distribute traffic over several connections
- Priority; Router traffic to a preferred connection
- Overflow; Redirect traffic when the connection has insufficient bandwidth
If a company needs a connection that absolutely must not drop, two routers can be put in High Availability mode. In this mode, 1 router is on standby, taking over from the other router when needed.
Thanks to Drop-in Mode, the existing network does not need to be modified to integrate the Peplink Balance 2500. This allows the Peplink Balance to be easily placed in an existing network, for example behind a firewall.
The built-in LAN Bypass keeps crucial network traffic running when the Peplink 2500 suddenly shuts down (for example, due to power failure). Traffic is then routed around the device from WAN5 to LAN1. These two network ports form a ‘bridge’ so that data traffic can still flow through.
This router features WAN Failover. This means that it switches from one connection to another if the primary connection fails. In this way the router provides an extremely reliable and flexible connection.
Dual Hot Swap Power Supply
A useful feature on the Peplink Balance 2500 is the Dual Hot Swap Power Supply. This allows you to switch between power supplies when one of the two fails, without interrupting data traffic. This is an ideal functionality when the highest possible uptime is desired.
With the AP Controller, the wireless network of the Peplink can be easily managed. With this low-threshold interface, reports and detailed event logs can be viewed. It can also be used to set up a WiFi hotspot for the client. This can be done with the Captive Portal function of the controller. This allows you to easily determine things like connection speed and data usage limits.
The Peplink Balance 2500 supports SpeedFusion, a unique technology that makes it possible to combine internet connections from different providers. This ensures a higher bandwidth. When a connection is lost, the Balance 2500 automatically switches to another connection.
