Bandwidth of WAN links


#1

When I look at the data sheet of peplink balance 380, I find that the item of “WAN Ports/Internet Links” shows 3(GbE).What does it mean?

Does it mean that one of 3 ports can support 1G bandwidth?

Hi Edwin,

Thank you for your interest in Peplink.

The Gbe means that the port interface supports 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet connectivity, however this does not reflect on the overall router’s throughput.

The Peplink Balance 380 can be connected up to 3 WAN ports and maximum of 170Mbps router throughput.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

So the word ‘GbE’ means that all of WAN ports in peplink balance 380 can connect 10/100/1000 ethernet port.

However, why does the data sheet show that “WAN Ports/Internet Links” of peplink balance 710 is 7(3xGbE)?

Only three ports can connect 10/100/1000 port?

Hi Edwin,

Yes, the 710 have only three GbE WANs and one GbE LAN while the other four is 10/100 Base-T Ethernet port.

Thanks
