I have many Peplink Balance 20’s in restaurants that are configured with low bandwidth cellular backup Internet. The backup Internet plans do not include a monthly bandwidth allowance. The client is charged based on usage which can sometimes be excessive when the primary Internet is down for an extended length of time. This is especially a problem when there are many guests on the WiFi (Ubiquiti AP’s).
My primary goal is to make sure that back of house operations, i.e. credit cards, have Internet access.
- can a create an alert when bandwidth usage exceeds a certain amount on the backup Internet WAN?
- can I disable Internet access by port, IP Address or some other fashion when running on backup Internet?
Any other thoughts or suggestions appreciated.
