Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The SpeedFusion feature is the most valuable.""The SpeedFusion feature is good. It allowed us to move away from IPsec between the sites. It is also a really easy product to deploy."

More Peplink SpeedFusion Pros »

"The most valuable feature for one of our customers is the ability to stage cloud workloads from the local network.""The most valuable feature is the Dynamic Multipath Optimization (DMPO), which allows the customer to maintain and monitor their link quality in real-time.""Proactively detects where problems might arise.""The most valuable feature is load balancing.""They make use of a combination of different internet lines, which improves quality.""The most valuable feature is the dynamic multipath optimization.""The biggest feature is called D.M.P.O., or Dynamic Multipath Optimization, which is one of the technologies that they use to deliver or ensure data integrity.""They have a lot of built-ins. There are so many applications defined inside the solution. It makes it so that we don't have to create some policies. Each and every application is already defined in it."

Cons
"Its pricing is the main issue. The pricing could be improved. I would like to see an outbound policy based on the application. It is a very good feature, and most of the customers are looking for that. They can also include stronger firewall features. This would help the customers in choosing this product as the only device for the SD network.""Their hardware support isn't the greatest. We've had one unit go down, and it took a while for them to replace it. It was in the Caribbeans, so it might be a location-related issue."

More Peplink SpeedFusion Cons »

"Technical support is in need of improvement.""VeloCloud needs improvement in terms of its security features.""Reports could be simplified.""The cost of VeloCloud could be lowered.""There is room for improvement with respect to security.""There is no security included, which is something that should be improved.""They need more gateways""The solution doesn't offer failover between their own devices. If I want to, I should be able to put the two devices at the side, so there can be a failover."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It has lifetime licensing. Its pricing is high for most of the markets.""Its licensing fee is on a yearly basis. For the price, it is actually pretty good value."

More Peplink SpeedFusion Pricing and Cost Advice »

"VeloCloud performs as well as the Cisco SD-WAN but it is cheaper in price.""The price of this solution is higher than that of other SD-WAN vendors.""The price of this solution should be lower.""The pricing is very comparable to Fortinet.""The price is reasonable for this solution, but the only challenge for us is that the Rand currency fluctuates to the dollar and provides some complexities. The price might go up just because the Rand has actually lost value.""The cost of VMware SD-WAN is high, but I think you can still get better pricing if your volume is high.""The price of the solution could be reduced.""My understanding is that the pricing is in the same range as other solutions."

Overview

Peplink’s patent-pending SpeedFusion technology powers enterprise VPNs that tap into the bandwidth of up to 13 low-cost cable, DSL, 3G/4G/LTE, and other links connected anywhere on your corporate or institutional WAN. Whether you’re transferring a few documents or driving realtime POS data, video feeds, and VoIP conversations, SpeedFusion pumps all your data down a single fat datapipe that’s budget-friendly, ultra-fast, and easily configurable to suit any networking environment.

Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of softwarebased network technologies that virtualize WAN connections to provide agility,
performance and reliability for network traffic between remote and branch offices to
data centers and the cloud.

SD-WAN leverages cloud-hosting to simplify deployment and management of
network devices and employs traffic steering to applications in the data center and
the cloud. It combines the bandwidth of broadband with existing WAN connections to
more efficiently and cost-effectively connect users to data center and cloud-based
applications from any location in the network.

SD-WAN optimizes traffic over multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband,
LTE) to deliver traffic across the network, delivering a better user experience to any
location. SD-WAN will dynamically steer traffic to the best available link, and if the
available links show any transmission issues, it will immediately apply remediation for
jitter and packet loss based on policies to ensure performance of the high-priority
applications.
