The Balance 305 is the "lite" version of the Peplink Balance 380. It includes all the same features and functionality as the Balance 380, except it supports only 2 SpeedFusion peers (380 supports 20)

The Peplink Balance 305 is designed for medium-size enterprise networks that need to always be fast and always be on. Load balance up to three wired WAN broadband connections and a 3G/4G USB modem for increased uptime with better reliability and user experience. The built-in automatic failover means the Balance 305 router will automatically switch to cellular Internet or another designated back-up source should your primary provider falter. Users can also increase bandwidth by using Peplink’s SpeedFusion VPN bonding, which provides the added benefit of unbreakable privacy for sensitive or proprietary data.

This three WAN port router can be dropped right into your existing network of 50 to 500 users without changing your current configurations. Device management is simple when you use the Web Admin interface, command line interface or InControl Cloud Management application. From any of these options, you can set up email notifications, view bandwidth usage statistics or compile reports. A built-in DNS server and AP Controller Pro profile configuration software are among the other useful features. A year of expert tech support is included when you order a Peplink 305 Load Balancing Router from 5Gstore.com.

5Gstore is a Peplink Certified PartnerFeatures:

  • Internet Connections Supported: 3 Wired WAN, 1 USB (view full compatibility chart)
  • WiFi Standard: No built-in WiFi. Add an access point (like the AP One Mini) if WiFi is needed.
  • WiFi Range: N/A
  • Ethernet ports: 3 GbE LAN + 3 WAN
  • Size: 1.72" x 16.8" x 10.7"
  • Bonding: SpeedFusion VPN Bonding. NOTE: Many factors influence the real-world throughput you'll see from bonded connections, including latency, connection type, connection speeds, traffic type, and reliability on both sides of the SpeedFusion tunnel. Cellular users should note that bonded cellular connections suffer from "flow control" of TCP traffic at the carrier level, and 5Gstore cannot guarantee that bonding multiple cellular connections will result in faster speeds (however, the other benefits of SpeedFusion remain, such as unbreakable VPN, session persistence, and 100% up-time as long as you have 1 healthy WAN).

Date Added: 05/04/2017 by Todd T. (San Mateo, CA)
Rapidly growing office with 15 people previously on Peplink Balance One upgraded to Peplink 305. The Balance One is the bang for the buck champion but in actual use the 305 is noticeably faster for the users. No stats, sorry no time for that, just subjective. If you need to go cheap you can do 15 maybe even 30 users on a Peplink Balance One - but it is not optimal.
