Balance 30 vs 30 Pro

I check the spec and found 30Pro has LTEA & more Firewall throughput.
On other site, https://www.microcom.us/bpl031lteawt.html , BPL-031-LTEA-W-T is EOL.
But on Peplink, it doesn’t say EOL.
LTEA is more advanced and why EOL. May be that site has wrong info.
Any thoughts?

thought is to pick the model that fits your needs

i dont think its EOL, updates are still going out for it

The BPL-031-LTEA-W-T is EOL under that specific SKU. You can still get the same device under the BPL-031-LTE-US-T part number.

We revamped the lineup of our Balance 30 LTE. With the new hardware refresh, our Balance 30 LTEA will have a new hardware revision and an updated configuration. The new hardware will come with 11ac Wi-Fi and PoE.

Please note that we will reuse the same product code while renaming this model to “Balance 30 Pro”. Here’s a quick table updating the product SKUs and showing the differentiation between the current Balance 30 LTE (classic) and our new Balance 30 Pro.

Thanks for the explanation. If the product code is the same, how could I know that the one I buy will b the new product?

The product codes look different? Ask the seller?

The product label would be able to help differentiate the differences.

Hope this clarifies.
