Our challenge is that we have a high end resort on a remote island in and the internet requirements or our clients and staff are increasing. Guest walk in with an assortment of Notebooks, Ipads, Smartphones. Where as a few years ago they would express relief at being offline for a while, there seem to be more and more people who are totally hooked even in their holidays and consume every shred of bandwidth available. So we have up to 80 people suckling on a IPstar Vsat line that barely has up to 2mbit but in reality mostly hovers somewhere under 1mbit. We are now installing a second (expensive) Vsat downlink and probably would install even more if we could somehow combine the available bandwidth.
In addition we sometimes get something between 2G and 3G GPRS/EDGE from nearby main island. It is slow and unreliable even on the main island but we could probably squeeze an intermittent bit of bandwidth from that too. That´s how it looks there :
Now is this a situation that the Peplink Balance Multi-Wan Routers could deal with productively?
Would it be possible to connect to any Wifi network (such as ubiquity unifi / airmax) or would we need to change to a Peplink Wifi setup?
Does it provide uptime / bandwidth stats / records that we could feed back to the provider and use to monitor performance of the satellite down/uplinks
Thank you very much for your input
