How to Peplink: Unlock the Power of Peplink SpeedFusion

''Exploring the benefits of Peplink SpeedFusion: How this technology can improve your network connectivity''

SpeedFusion Technologies

If you have ever heard of Peplink’s connectivity solutions, then SpeedFusion will probably sound familiar to you. This unique software technology offers the possibility of combining multiple connections. These include: DSL, ADSL, 4G/5G, VSAT, Wi-Fi WAN or other connections available. The connections are transformed by the software into unbreakable and reliable connections that offer a fast, reliable, and budget-friendly solutions. Using the PepVPN configuration tool in InControl2, the Cloud Based Management tool from Peplink, you can set up your network using SpeedFusion very easily. SpeedFusion consists of several technologies that can prevent specific network problems. As a result, SpeedFusion can be configured to match the solution you need. In this blog, we take a look at the most important and widely used technologies: PepVPN, Hot Failover, WAN Smoothing and Bandwidth Bonding.

PepVPN

PepVPN

So, what is PepVPN? Peplink’s PepVPN is the patented VPN technology where SpeedFusion is based on. It is ideal for establishing a secure tunnel over any WAN link and is possibly the world’s easiest machine to machine VPN technology. PepVPN is introduced to make it even easier to migrate to SpeedFusion and build SD-WAN enabled networks. The VPN connection uses IPsec encryption. With PepVPN you can create a secure network with one static IP address, this is useful with 4G or 5G connections that don’t have by default static IP-addresses. With Quality of Services you also give priority to the data flows, so that these processes have a stable and more reliable connection.

Hot Failover

We hebben geleerd dat PepVPN de basis is van SpeedFusion. Dus, wat is Hot Failover? Hot Failover beheert meerdere redundante verbindingen om VPN’s en VoIP-implementaties te allen tijde operationeel te houden. Met andere VPN-technologieën beëindigt WAN-failover bestaande site-to-site VPN-verbindingen, waardoor kostbare downtime ontstaat. SpeedFusion Hot Failover voorkomt dit door veilige tunnels over alle beschikbare WAN-links in stand te houden. In geval van een WAN-storing schakelt SpeedFusion Hot Failover onmiddellijk en naadloos over naar een andere beschikbare tunnel en terug wanneer de WAN-verbinding weer online is.

WAN Smoothing

With the SpeedFusion Hot Failover option switching seamlessly between links, there are other technologies for more specific network challenges. When latency and jittery images are not an option, WAN Smoothing is of use for you. WAN Smoothing utilizes intelligent algorithms to fill in connectivity gaps, trading bandwidth for greater connection resiliency. WAN Smoothing minimizes latency and reduces the impact of packet loss. For instance, when live broadcasts are jittery due to packet loss, WAN Smoothing sends redundant packets through multiple network channels simultaneously, instantly filling in the gaps in data and eliminating the effects of packet loss. This very useful for live streaming, surveillance systems and video calls at remote locations. Because we all know the frustrations during an interview when the answer is cut in half.

Bandwidth Bonding

Bandwidth Bonding

The final technology within SpeedFusion is Bandwidth Bonding. This technology is extremely useful when bandwidth is limited, such as remote sites or mobile solutions like cars and vessels. It also enables branch offers to connect to the head office at greater connection speeds. Bandwidth bonding combines data the packet level, enabling you to combine the speed of multiple connections. This super-fast tunnel ensures the best connection for critical data that needs to be send or received as fast as possible.
