I need some help selecting a PepLink device(s) for an IoT (internet of things) Advanced Energy Metering Project.
The device is an Eaton PXM2290 Energy Meter that has a built in web interface (this is what I want to access remotely). Much like the Peplink products I can set the IP of the meter to any range, subnet that I want.
Challenge is I have these installed at client locations and because they are not on the client wireless or local network (if a network) I need to drive hours to the site to access the web interface on the meters.
The client sites have either cellular coverage (4G LTE Verizon & ATT) or a client WiFi SSID with internet access that I have permissions to access.
I’d like to either use a AP Rugged One or Max BR1 (depending on if the client site has WiFi with internet or exclusively cellular) and the remove Peplink device connected by using one of their LAN ports to the meter.
Then I want to be able to VPN into that remote Peplink device and access the meters web interface.
Sorry for any stupid questions…I am a electrical and facility guy not an IT guy
I was thinking that if I had a Balance 20 at my home office I could VPN to the aforementioned Peplink devices (AP rugged one or Max BR1)?
Do I need a state IP on either end (I hope not because that is pricey) to make this function?
