We have a requirement for internet service for up to 250 users in a remote location serviced only by qty(2) LTE carriers.
Carrier A on AVERAGE has 30% more bandwidth then carrier B but also has higher bandwidth fluctuations and jitter.
Carrier B has less fluctuation and is more stable but at less throughput
We have qty(12) LTE modems with LTE service. We have external antenna and good RF strength to tower.
Typically in other installations with 3 WANS we set the Balance to a Home IP of 192.168.1.1
WAN 1 Static IP: 192.168.2.2
LTE Modem Gateway @ 192.168…2.1 DMZ from Router to WAN1 Port
WAN 2 Static IP: 192.168.3.2
LTE Modem Gateway @ 192.168…3.1 DMZ from Router to WAN1 Port
WAN 3 Static IP: 192.168.4.2
LTE Modem Gateway @ 192.168…4.1 DMZ from Router to WAN1 Port
Below is my typical deployment of a Balance 02 with 3 LTE WANs:
This time we need to use Qty(12) LTE connections from GE ports on Qty(12) LTE routers.
There will be up to 127 concurrent users on a Ubiquiti Unifi Network with CLoud Key controller.
No known peplink device allows Qty(12) GE WAN ports. From the Peplink website only 3 appliances have recommended users in the qty (127) range and only the BPL-210 can be configured with Qty(3) GE WAN ports.
Can the LAN port of qty(3) Balance ONE (BPL-ONE) be cascaded into the WAN ports of a BPL-210? effectively connecting qty(3) Balance Ones (BPL-ONE) fully populated with 5 LTE/Model Connections each.
Is the BPL-210 being discontinued?
** Is there a benefit to turn of DHCP on the LTE Modem/router and set a static IP to the WAN port of Balance?
*** Is there a benefit to “DMZ” the static IP port of hte LTE Modem/Router into the WAN port of the Balance?
**** When setting the Static IP on the LTE Modem/Router to the balance WAN port, what should be the DNS settings? I was instructed in the past to set the FIrst DNS setting to the LTE Modem/Router gateway itself and the alternate to google 184.108.40.206 Is this a good practice or should both DNS be set to google 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. respectively.
Thank you and best regards.
