We are in a location were bandwidth is top dollar, luckily we came across a very cost effective and affordable WAN optimization solution that really works. This is coming at a time when we are migrating our core gears to peplinks’ however, my experience with peplink is very limited.
In addition to being a WISP, we also are building tower stations and into distribution using good old back-hauling on microwave however there is just no way we could reach some locations and then we came across peplink VPN and the idea to link these two technologies together.
The idea is to create a VPN with one peplink device say BPL710 at our main basestation with STM1 bandwidth capacity and then at a remote location, rent perharps 1 or 2mpbs link from an ISPs that already has service and place a smaller peplink device with VPN setup there. The WAN optimization device is a bridge device and will bypass the WAN bottle neck by compressing data to smaller packets at main base station and the decompress them at the remote end so for example, we could via the peplink VPN between the BPL-710 and say smaller peplink device, bypass the 2mb limit rented and push up to say 80Mb to the remote site. Since the WAN optimization device is a bridge, there are no network configurations to set.
My question now is:
- How do we setup the peplink VPN between the BPL-710 and the other small peplink device (say up to 40)?
- How do we use our own IPs at the remote end of the VPN.
- Will the clients connecting behind the peplink router at the remote site have access to Public IPs should we decide to give?
Thanks in anticipation of any response.
