The BR1 5G is a complete mobile internet solution for travelers who are looking to use Cellular data as their primary mode of staying connected. The BR1 5G is equipped with a 5G cellular modem for ultra-fast cellular access to all major cellular providers.  The ultra-fast cellular modem is capable of 4Gbps of maximum download speed and 700mbps of upload. The BR1 5G has two sim slots (nano), allowing you to load this router with multiple sim cards from multiple carriers, allowing you to select which sim/carrier is in use by the modem. The signal from your cellular connection is then re-broadcasted wirelessly inside your coach or travel trailer using the unit's high-powered WIFI 6, 2x2 MIMO WiFi antennas. You get powerful 2ghz (long-range) and 5ghz (high speed) wireless connectivity that now takes advantage of the latest WIFI 6 technology with much faster throughput than its predecessor while also getting wired ethernet ports for your most demanding devices like VOIP phones or desktop computer/workstations. 

You can also utilize the BR1 5G LTE-A's WiFi-As-WAN functionality to connect to campground WiFi in addition to utilizing the cellular modem. For the advanced user, you can load-balance multiple connections (advanced feature), allowing you to utilize wireless/wired and cellular connections simultaneously. It is truly an industrial-grade, mobile workhorse for the serious travel enthusiast. 

The unit's highly customizable web interface supports a variety of advanced routing features and will satisfy the needs of power users while being extremely easy to use for the non-technical as well. The unit accepts 12v inputs (optional fused Molex direct wire cable exclusively from MobileMustHave.com), or you can use the included AC adapter for 110v installation.

One Embedded Cellular Modem

This mobile router is equipped with a single cellular modem. This device may have multiple SIM card slots but can connect to one cellular provider at a time. Single modem devices may include a USB port or expansion slot to add additional modems. Switching between SIM card slots can be done via the management console, typically in 30-60 seconds allowing time for the modem to reboot utilizing the auxiliary SIM slot(s). Higher-end single modem devices often have faster maximum download/upload speeds then other devices but lack the redundancy found in a multi-modem device. Our multi-modem collection of devices can be found here

Internet traffic can be routed in a variety of ways using Peplink's proprietary Outbound Policy Management Algorithms.  Single modem devices may be capable of utilizing SpeedFusion technology, also known as "WAN bonding", which may require separate licensing. Single modem devices can bond the single cellular connection with the devices WAN port or WIFI-as-WAN sources if the device supports these functions.  See SpeedFusion section on this page for additional information.

5G/Category 20 Modem

This mobile router is equipped with one or more 5G / Category 20 cellular modems with a maximum download speed of 4Gbps and a maximum upload speed of 700Mbps (typical speeds range from 10-350mbps depending on cellular network conditions and coverage). The category of the modem impacts the maximum upload and download speed of the device and what cellular bands or "channels" the device can connect to. Cellular bands act similarly to "channels" on television, each cellular provider broadcasts on specific bands. 5G modems include Bands specific to 5G service and also work on 4G Bands as well. 5G modems have the broadest Band support available today. This includes access to Band 14, and T-Mobile's Band 71 as well as 5G bands like n71 and n41 and more.  For a complete list of bands supported, click the documentation tab for detailed specifications.

Licensed for SpeedFusion

This device is licensed for SpeedFusion access. SpeedFusion is Peplink's proprietary WAN bonding solution that can bond multiple internet connections together into a single, more resilient connection for added connection reliability. SpeedFusion-capable devices create a VPN tunnel that allows multiple internet connections to act as a single connection. SpeedFusion supports WAN-Smoothing, a technology that helps to prevent packet loss which is typically the cause for unstable internet connections. In order to utilize SpeedFusion you must either host your own SpeedFusion instance at a secondary location/datacenter or use Peplink's SpeedFusion Cloud service which is available for an additional monthly subscription fee. This device includes data allotment for SpeedFusion cloud transfer at up to 100Mbps per second (amount of data will change based on the hardware). For more information on SpeedFusion and SpeedFusion Cloud, please reach out to us below.

 

Roof Antenna Recommended

This mobile router comes with indoor antennas that provide 3db of cellular gain. Upgrading to an optional roof antenna can provide significant signal improvement by moving the cellular antenna outside, at higher elevation and provide you the benefit of an antenna with higher gain specifications. Roof antennas can be added now with a bundle discount by checking out our Internet Bundle Section, or at a later date based on your needs.

Supports WiFi-as-WAN

This device supports WiFi-As-WAN, meaning you can pick up public WiFi signals from hotspots, campgrounds, and other sources to rebroadcast them into your coach and use them as your local internet. The wireless antennas included with this modem will pick up these signals and rebroadcast them locally within your own WiFi network. 

*Using public WiFi may be unreliable due to external environmental forces typically outside of customer's control and as such public WiFi is recommended to be used as a secondary backup connection. 

WiFi 6 Technology

WiFi 6 expands the WiFi band from 80 MHz to 160 MHz, doubling the channel width and creating a faster connection from your router to the device. With WiFi 6, you can enjoy 8K movies, large file downloads and uploads, and responsive smart home devices – all without buffering. WiFi 6 allows for speeds of up to 9.6 gigabits per second (Gbps), up from WiFi 5's 3.5 Gbps. 

This means faster internal file transfers and less speed loss between the modem to your device.

Manage Devices Remotely with InControl2

InControl2 is Peplink's cloud-based endpoint management system. When connected to your devices, it aggregates data to generate useful reports on all aspects of your network. On a single screen, you can push configurations to any and all of your endpoints. If you need to dig deeper, you can remotely access the web admin of any device on your network.

For most MobileMustHave customers this features is not required, but it does allow your device to be accessible to you via the cloud.  This can be an advantage if you would like to remotely control your device, track your vehicles location (if GPS is enabled), and allow support access to remote in (when permission is granted).

InControl2 is included with all router purchases for 1-Year and is included with EssentialCare and PrimeCare Warranty Renewal Options. 

1 Year of Primecare Included!

    Great Router

    This is a great router. I bought the bundle and have never had any major problems. With the latest firmware updates you can also use 1 of the lan ports as an additional wan Ethernet port for free. This works great and gives a lot more flexibility.

    Synergy Device

    In the process of upgrading my entire network. I bought this instead of the max adapter 5G to act as a synergized device for the 3rd 5G connection, but also to act as a standalone backup in the event of a failure of my BR2 5G which is my synergy controller. For ~$350 difference instead of getting just an adapter, I have a fully functional router with 5G, WiFi-WAN, additional WAN inputs, etc.. Small price to pay for redundancy and added functionality.

    Upgraded from Max BR1 Pro LTEA to the 5G

    It was a very seamless transition and the product has worked great. I have been very happy with all of the Peplink devices I have owned and the service of MobileMustHave.

    Fantastic!

    I am new to mobile internet. Purchased the MAX BR1 Pro 5G it was super easy to install. The interface is intuitive. We are able to track our data usage and prioritize data for our work over the kids streaming. super amazing! Paid for MMH to do the initial setup, there service was outstanding! Worth every penny for their expertise to get the routers firmware updated and configured.

    Rock solid with premium features.

    Love the Max BR1 Pro. It has been rock solid and has all the features you'll ever need in a very small form factor.
