The Balance 20, Balance 30 and Balance 50 are recommended for networks with less than 25 devices. They provide a complete Internet load balancing and failover solution with the 2, 3 or 5 Ethernet WAN connections as well as a USB port for a 3G or LTE device.

Multiple load balancing rules can be configured to be in control of your Internet traffic. The rules can be configured per type of traffic (using unique ports) to represent for example websites, email, Voice over IP, etc., unique source (device on your network) or per destination (IP address or domain name) by using any of the 7 built-in algorithms (Weighted, Enforced, Persistence, Priority, Overflow, Least used and Lowest Latency).

The Peplink routers can be configured to send E-mail notifications when a line fails and is restored again, and it also provides detailed reports on the usage of each Internet connection.

They come standard with Quality of Service (QoS) for Voice over IP (VOIP) and other streaming services, and also provide a PPTP Server Service that will allow you to connect to your network from anywhere via the internet.

The routers also have the functionality to integrate with Pepwave’s Enterprise Wireless AP One access points to centrally manage the Wi-Fi network from one device.

The Balance ONE is similar to the Balance 20 with the extra benefits of more processing power, integrated simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi as well as 8 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports.
