The Pepwave AP One Rugged is a robust dual band 2x2 MIMO access point that comes equipped with a full set of enterprise features, such as industrial-grade components, wide-coverage, user access control, and easy deployment. The simultaneous dual-band reduces Wi-Fi congestion and interference, giving you two separate networks that work together so that all your devices can connect without problems. Use the Pepwave AP One Rugged to add Wi-Fi to a router that does not have it, or add additional Wi-Fi range, reliability, and features to any router, when the included Wi-Fi is not sufficient.

Although the Pepwave AP One access point can be used with any router, it’s specially designed to work instantly with your Peplink Balance router, and the full-feature set is only available with Peplink/Pepwave products.

The Pepwave AP One is the best way to add reliable WLAN to your business network. This robust access point provides enterprise-grade performance and has the flexibility to deploy anywhere. It’s easy to set up and manage, and delivers fast, secure and long-range Wi-Fi.

I love the management integration..... But it kind of ends there. Setup two of these in two different buildings. At first they seemed ok but then I started getting complaints about dropped Vonage calls on cell phones and later cell wifi calls. I bought a third one and created a mesh. Pretty much nothing changed. Started checking signals and these babies were weak. The old lynksys home router would blow them away. It's funny as the MAX BR1 in the RV has a great wifi signal. Not sure exactly where to go from here,
guess that is up to Pepwave..... but.... you will probably should steer clear of these Minis

Swapped out a AP One Enterprise, laptop in the next room went from 200-250Mbit to 500-550Mbit, as long as you keep your expectations reasonable, you should be pleased with it

I really wanted to love this access point. Bottom line is that 5GHz performance is 1/3 of the AC Mini and the power consumption and heat generation is quite high, hot to the touch! The day I received this, it got discontinued at the 5GStore. As a result of this, I am either getting the new "Lite" version or another AC Mini.
