This is the UPDATED MediaFast 500 with a 500gb SSD and improved throughput (800mbps vs 500mbps)

The MediaFast Pepwave Balance is an advanced networking router for small businesses, schools and other enterprise users who make extensive use of online media. Video and audio are downloaded and cached on the 500GB solid state hard drive for uninterrupted playback at any time. It supports five wired WAN internet connections and one USB cellular modem, using Pepwave’s SpeedFusion Bonding or load balancing technology to combine connections for increased bandwidth of up to 800 Mbps throughput. Intelligent failover will switch traffic over if a connection fails. Use the web administrative interface or InControl 2 cloud management to monitor bandwidth usage or track popular file download types.

This enterprise caching router supports content from iTunes, iTunes U, ted.com, HTML and other providers aimed at entertainment and education. The MediaFast technology allows users to pre-fetch content during times with less traffic to reduce network strain and can also automatically delete files based on age or file type. The Pepwave Balance Caching Router is portable and can be brought anywhere that you need high-quality audio and video playback. Our support portal contains extensive documentation on how to use your MediaFast 500 router and you can also contact the 5Gstore.com tech support team by phone or email.
