I am linking seven retail field sites via hub and spoke. Each site has 50-100 Mbps fiber and unreliable 400 Mbps cable ISP for a dozen users and 25 IP cameras. A use case is streaming of at least 5 cameras (each using 1 Mbps) per site. I am uncertain of the value in this dual-WAN arrangement but for now it keeps operations management content.
The Balance 20 may actually satisfy these requirements, but it seems dated and limited in specification. The integrated Wi-Fi of the Balance One is appealing to reduce site complexity. What model router may be optimal considering price|performance|flexibility for spoke and a hub?
I understand features vary across models. The +$200 cost of the Balance One provides a much higher performing router although I cannot gauge associated InControl subscription costs (the Balance 20 is $50/two years). What are others deploying as a “go-to standard small-site” router?
