I’ve got a BR1 Max router here that I’m sending a video stream though. It is important to keep the stream alive without interruption so I’m looking into a way to do hot failover to 4G in case my WAN goes out.
At the moment, I do not have SpeedFusion enabled. When the WAN goes out, the 4G enables, but my stream is down for around 30 seconds until my computer can restore an internet connection.
I’ve been looking at this video: https://www.peplink.com/technology/speedfusion-bonding-technology/
In the video, they have what appears to be a fairly simple setup: one computer connected to a Peplink router, one WAN, and a 4G connection. They claim to be have SpeedFusion enabled to get the hot failover that they are demonstrating.
Now my question… Whenever I’ve looked into using SpeedFusion, it appears that I need to set up a VPN that includes either a second router in a remote location or I need to use FusionHub software on a cloud server. Is this true? The video sure didn’t show any of that business.
Is it possible to get hot failover using just one router, one WAN, and a 4G connection? If not, what is the simplest way to get hot failover and what are they not showing in that video?
