The MBX Mini is a portable powerhouse designed for high capacity mobile internet use. The MBX Mini has two onboard 5G/CAT 20 embedded cellular routers each with a max throughput of 4Gbps. The MBX Mini is capable of combining the bandwidth of up to 4 cellular links into an unbreakable, high-speed SD-WAN connection through the use of its dual embedded cellular modems and optional USB modems that can be added to the device's USB tethering ports. The MBX Mini supports up to 4 SIM cards, with room for another 8 with the optional SIM Injector.
The MBX Mini is designed for industrial usage. With its fanless design, it thrives in high-particle environments that would damage other fan-based routers. The MBX Mini also comes with 4x 802.3at PoE outputs to power your IP phones, cameras, and access points. The ultra compact design packs everything into 7.32 x 8.05 x 1.61 inches.
The MBX Mini comes with multiple features to make it ideal for on-the-go deployments. Ignition Sensing gives it the ability to turn on and off depending on whether the vehicle has started. Upon vehicle shutdown, the MBX can also shut down after a user-defined interval, saving the battery from the excessive drain. The MBX Mini has dual power inputs if redudant power supplies is needed added redundancy.
The MBX Mini supports Gigabit LTE with 2x 5G CAT-20 LTEA modems. The MBX is capable of 2.5Gbps of throughput, giving you plenty of bandwidth for Gigabit Ethernet, 5G, or any future mobile technologies. 2x Wired WAN GB ports mean you can combine multiple wired and cellular internet connections to provide a single unified or advanced route configuration for all of your internet and connectivity traffic.
The MBX had the ability to combine the bandwidth of 2x 5G Gigabit LTEA links, 2x Wired WAN 2x USB WAN ports with optional Max Adapter USB Modems, and 2x WIFI-WAN for up to 9 simultanious WAN connections.
The MBX Mini supports 4x 802.3at PoE so that you can power and connect your cameras and IP phones with minimal cabling.

The MBX Mini supports ignition sensing, which enables the device to turn on and off based on the ignition status of the vehicle.
The MBX Mini includes Peplinks Wireless Access Point Controller for seamless provisioning and integration of external Peplink access points.
The 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 TMobile'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.
5G modems are cutting edge but that performance comes at a price as upgraded processors are needed and the technology is very new. 5G modems are very popular with customers that need the fastest possible speeds for large file downloads or uploads or who require access to secondary Bands to improve performance on a particular cellular carrier but don't mind occasional disconnects that can happen with any single modem device. For customers who require "mission-critical" internet stability, we recommend going with a dual-modem device. 5G modems require 5G data plans to connect at 5G speeds and are not compatible with all data plans. Data plans listed on this page are supported.
Roof Antenna Support
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.
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.

This device is FirstNet Ready! FirstNet is the nationwide public safety communications platform dedicated to America's first responders. Being built with AT&T, in public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority, FirstNet utilizes Band-14, which is reserved for public safety but is also being marketed as available to the public for additional bandwidth capacity. In testing Band-14 has been made available during non-emergency situations to the public to provide additional bandwidth and coverages to customers who have a modem that supports FirstNet's Band-14. Not all modems that support Band-14 are "FirstNet Certified" however they typically can connect to Band-14 in most areas. Information on FirstNet certifications can be found on Specification sheets located on the Documentation Tab. Additional information about FirstNet's use and technology can be found in this article from our friends at the RV Mobile Internet Resource Center.
Band 71 Ready
This device supports Band 71. Band 71 is T-Mobile's rural cellular band that operates on 600mhz which provides significant increases in coverage on the T-Mobile network for customers traveling outside of urban areas. 5G ready devices that support Band 71 typically also support Band 71n which is the 5G band for T-Mobile. Note that not all devices are 5G devices so check the listing above but with or without 5G you will still achieve increased coverage on the T-Mobile network with any device that supports Band 71. For more information about Band 71, check out the Band 71 Guide from our friends at the Mobile Internet Resource Center.
