  • Description
  • Documentation

The Peplink Max Transit 5G mobile router boasts a Cat-20 / 5G modem for blazing fast downloand and upload speeds on the nation's cellular 5G nationwide networks. 

The Transit 5G is a complete mobile internet solution for travelers who are looking to use Cellular data as their primary mode of staying connected. The Transit 5G has two sim slots 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, yacht, travel trailer or rural home using the units high powered 802.11ac/a/n and 802.11b/g/n 2x2 MIMO WiFi antennas. You get powerful 2ghz (long-range) and 5ghz (high speed) wireless connectivity while also getting wired ethernet ports for your most demanding devices like VOIP phones or desktop computers/workstations.

The Transit 5G also has a Wireless Controller built into the unit allowing for management of external wireless access points for larger wireless deployments. While you can use external access points with modems that do not have an integrated controller setup and configuration is more complicated so we encourage customers who are interested in adding additional access points to look at the Transit Series for this purpose. 

You can also utilize the TransitTransit 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. 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 (bare wire screw-down terminals) or you can use the included AC adapter for 110v installation.

5G Modem 

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.


SpeedFusion Licensed

The device listed on this page 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 which allows multiple internet connections to act as a single connection. SpeedFusion supports WAN-Smoothing, a technology which 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 utilize Peplink's SpeedFusion Cloud service which is available for an additional monthly subscription fee. This device includes 1TB of SpeedFusion cloud transfer at up to 100Mbps per second. For more information on SpeedFusion and SpeedFusion cloud please contact us below.


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.

FirstNet Ready

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

A Mobile Must Have to stay connected.

Finally confident conferencing calls won't drop on my end. Between failover, bonding/load sharing and Speed Fusion as a whole I no longer have 'Call Fail' anxiety. MAX Transit 5G is more versatile and feature packed than most users will need, it performs exactly as expected. I've followed Erik & Kala's journey for years and trust that they back quality equipment to maintain consistent productivity.

MAX Transit 5G

Love this router! I bought it to be compliant with future 5G, but had no problems at all. Took it into the Verizon store and they activated a 5G sim on one of their MiFi devices and then transferred the sim to the Pepwave. Works great!

Marine connectivity

My Max Transit 5G arrived ahead of schedule and worked right out of the box. I did pay for support which I encourage - as good as the instructions and online videos are, Dave C has configured over a thousand of these and he knows how to get the most out of them. The router works exactly as described and so far I'm thrilled with it, and MobileMustHave!

This is a beast, an absolute game changer in our mobile internet solution, paired with a Parsec 7 in 1 antenna.We are a primarily internet based business traveling several states in the Texas and surrounding states region. Having a good internet connection had been a pain in the � for some time. I had a WiFi booster, a cell booster and a MiFi device and I just danced around the MH trying to find some kind of signal then connecting everything to what worked at the time, only to realize later that wasn�t working but something else was working now.Looking for a better solution I came across MMH, I like the future of 5g so I went there and added the Parsec. In my office I plugged it all in and boom the best speed I had ever had, Pepwave smoked everything.Installed it in the MH very easy to do if you follow the directions. It is a complete game changer. The ability to move and mix different sources blows me away.
