SpeedFusion Licensed

The device listed on this page is licensed for SpeedFusion access.

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.

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.

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

Excellent modem, great user interface and build quality

Installing was simple, and configuring was as simple as other routers I have worked on. MMH support is very good and responds within 24 hours. Excellent quality and makes me wonder why it was discontinued…

Excellent package for boat

I purchased this modem for use on a boat while traveling through Puget Sound. Can’t say enough good things about: soldi build, excellent sensitivity and reception, easy user interface if you know how to configure a modem. Dual sim slots and Wi-Fi as wan, which allows you to relay marina Wi-Fi signals inside the boat with a solid strong signal. Shipped quickly and came with very adequate and clear instructions.

Great Router with T-Mobile

We use our T-mobile plan with this router as it supports band 71. We have had no issues with it. The Support from MobileMustHave includes a great webinar, and Q&A session after the webinar where they help answer any questions you might have. Well worth the money to get the added config support.

Optimal Fixed Rural Solution

After a year with a MAX BR1 ENT CAT-12, also from MMH, we just upgraded to the MAX Transit CAT-18 and it already has exceeded my expectations as we are still running the 2x2 MIMO grid antennas on the tower, and have already improved latency on average (now 28-40ms) and improved SINR. We will be adding 2 more grids to the tower for 4x4 MIMO as soon as the weather cooperates.

Built Like a Tank But Runs Like a Ferrari !!

This is my first mobile router. The quality of workmanship is excellent. The setup was much less intimidating that I expected, but I'm glad I paid a little extra for the training. Dave was very professional and answered all my questions. Boy, is this thing fast! I am very happy with my purchase.
