Hey, we have quite a lot of customers contact us in the 10-20 device range, whether it be computers or IP phones or both. I love all Peplink devices and only use these routers for our company’s deployments. Here is my request and why:
- Make the Balance One’s LAN ports all POE while still keeping the gigabit throughput as well.
- Reason 1 - We only deploy VoIP Phones with POE devices, so this could in tern save the customer some money when it comes to buying a POE switch on top of a router.
- Reason 2 - Say there is the MAX devices physically on the network for this router (16). I could VLAN the Balance One for my VoIP phones and Computers and Daisy Chain all 8 computers through all of my VoIP Phones. And still have the Wireless capability with the Balance One model, all in a price range that we can sell that is extremely competitive.
*Now you can have a 16 user (hard wire) customer that only needs 1 device on the LAN. This is excluding if they have an onsite Server, etc. But for the most part it could save a lot of money and is a great selling point. I think this is a no brainer if you ask me.
