Today we want to tell you a bit about this company, and why we’re so excited to offer their products Brisbane and Australian businesses.

Peplink – Leaders in SD-WAN Technology   

Peplink are on a mission to “deliver the unbreakable connectivity. Anytime. Anywhere.” They do it through enabling highly resilient, scalable networks regardless of location. Networks that use engineering-driven innovation to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

They use comprehensive wired and wireless SD-WAN technology to achieve this. SD-WAN, or Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a revolutionary means of simplifying networks between branch offices, using centralized software to manage traffic and network health. It’s secure, reliable and fast, using multiple incoming links including broadband, cellular and satellite.

This allows businesses to set up a network, no matter their location. It translates extremely well to maritime, mining, transportation and energy and utility industries, bringing them high bandwidth communications to their remote positioning.

There’s so much more to love about the Peplink technology and the robust networks it creates. Let’s touch on a couple of the things we’re really excited about:

Innovative 5G Solutions

5G is here and it’s amazing. Lower latency, 100 x increase in traffic capacity and efficiency, 100+ MBPS average data rates. The potential for life-changing connectivity is incredible, and Peplink is building on that potential. The robust wireless capabilities of their SD-WAN solutions allow businesses to extract the maximum benefit from 5G connections. Innovation is about to reach a whole new level.


A patented Peplink technology, SpeedFusion empowers enterprise level VPN’s, turning multiple connections into a single bonded connection. It taps into the bandwidth of all the links coming into your WAN, pumping your data down the budget-friendly, secure data pipe.

This ‘Bandwidth Bonding’ allows you to combine the speed of up to 13 connections, which is great for remote areas where bandwidth is scarce. The bandwidth of multiple connections basically gets aggregated into a single pipe.

SpeedFusion also prioritises your connection resilience, using a feature called WAN Smoothing.  This minimizes latency and reduces the impact of packet loss… so no more drops outs when you’re in the middle of a Microsoft Teams conference call!

Peplink Security

We all know the fallout from a cyber breach of any description can be catastrophic for businesses, no matter their size. When it comes to network connectivity, security is key. Peplink get that, and have made security a fundamental of their technologies, which work together to generate multi-layered defense against potential intrusions. This means that in order to get to your network, attackers have to defeat a whole army of technology, each defending a separate part of the network!

Security features include web blocking, intrusion detection, a scalable firewall and security patches, all designed to create resilient networks offering comprehensive protection!
