The Balance 210 and Balance 310 routers are ideal for businesses with less than 50 users. These models provide the same features as the SOHO models, as well as the possibility to connect to 2 other Peplink routers with a secure Site-to-Site VPN (called SpeedFusion with Line Bonding), and perform DNS hosting for inbound load balancing. Due to a very small price difference between these two models, the Balance 310 is recommended.

The Medium Business and Enterprise models (Balance 380+) provide more WAN links, support higher router throughput and more Site-to-Site VPN peers, and also have the functionality to create user groups to prioritize traffic accordingly.

The Balance 305 is identical to the Balance 380, but does not include a SpeedFusion license. This model is aimed at business users that require the same functionality as the Balance 380, but does not require any SpeedFusion VPN connections. The SpeedFusion license can however be purchased at a later stage as an add-on.
