Peplink Software-Defined WAN
Aerea was introduced to Peplink while looking for a solution that would provide their Sigfox base stations a backup internet.
Peplink specialises in Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) for unbreakable internet. With more than 10 years of R&D and engineering, Peplink’s dedication, commitment and focus makes it a leader today in Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN), bandwidth scalability and bonding solutions.
When Aerea was explaining the issue to our team of Peplink Certified Engineers (PCE), it was clear that Peplink MAX BR1 router would be able to help.
Proposal was drafted based on the challenges Aerea faced. Instead of connecting the DSL or fibre landline internet directly to the Sigfox base station, which will lose internet access when the landline internet fails, the Sigfox base station connects to a Peplink MAX BR1 router.
The Peplink MAX BR1 router features one ethernet WAN port and an embedded 4G LTE/3G modem. It is able to connect to the DSL or fibre landline internet as well as a mobile internet provider e.g. Tele2 or T-Mobile for a 4G LTE/3G internet backup.
When KPN or Ziggo experiences service outage, the MAX BR1 router will detect the connectivity failure and automatically switch to the backup Tele2 or T-Mobile 4G LTE/3G network. The Sigfox base station will remain connected to the internet, and so do all the Sigfox IoT objects.
The MAX BR1 will continuously monitor the KPN or Ziggo landline internet, and will seamlessly switch back to it once its service restores.
