You can also utilize the mini's Wifi-As-Wan functionality (Advanced Feature Pack License required) to connect to external WiFi sources, enable the WAN port, enable hot failover and more. The Advanced Feature Pack License enables hot-failover of multiple WAN connections, WIFI-AS-WAN functionality (additional details below), enabled the wired WAN port, and enables ignition sensing functionality. Peplink offers discounts when this is purchased at the time of the sale of the router. Primecare licenses are non-refundable.

Peplink's proprietary multi-wan technology allows this modem to utilize the onboard cellular LTE modem, a public WiFi hotspot (WiFi-as-WAN) or a secondary wired internet connection (Starling, cable modem, DSL, etc.) as the source for Internet connectivity. The Pepwave Max BR1 MK2 is capable of load balancing multiple internet connections across multiple devices and is easily managed within the web-based management dashboard.

The mobile router is equipped with a category 6 LTE Advanced cellular modem with a maximum download speed of 300Mbps and a maximum upload speed of 50Mbps (typical speeds range from 3-50mbps 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. Category 6 modems support connecting to the primary bands of all major carriers such as Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint & AT&T however may lack certain secondary bands that can provide increased speed on certain carriers. For a complete list of bands supported, click the documentation tab for detailed specifications.
Category 6 modems support video streaming, video calling, and general internet use and are a good blend of value and functionality making them a great choice for customers that want to stay connected but do not consider the internet "mission-critical".
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.
The antennas on this page do not require a ground plane, but adding one will typically improve performance if your installation will allow it. Ground planes are metal sheets of ferrous metal (typically aluminum or galvanized steel) that the antenna mounts on top of. For optimal performance a ground plane of a minimum of 16" in diameter is typically recommended. The ground plane does not need to be grounded or wired to the chassis ground of the vehicle, the metal sheet simply helps the cellular and WiFi signals bounce into the antenna optimizing performance. Ground planes are available in various sizes on our store. For more information on ground planes visit the Ground Plane Guide on Mobile Internet Resource Center.

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.
