Requirements for load balancing


im thinking of buying the new 4g service in london to add to my existing broadband and then buying a peplink to load balance the two services.

are there any requirements on the services for success – i thought i saw somewhere that both services need to have a static IP adress

many thanks


Hi Chris,

Static IP is not needed if you use Peplink for Outbound Load Balancing.

Hope this help.


Thanks for the reply

Does outbound load balancing mean when i upload

does this mean i need static IPs for load balacing the downloads

finally will the peplink 20 be sufficient

Yes, Outbound Loadbalancing is set up by default on our devices and this applies to a time when traffic goes out to the outside world.
(Please know that Peplink is a session based load balancer, so when a session is established from LAN to WAN, this session keeps utilizing the same WAN until a new session is created.)

Yes, you would want to have a static IP for Inbound Loadbalancing. Please refer to the following KB article.

Hope this helps.


i dont fully understand everything. can i check

– will a peplink 20 be sufficient

– i definitely need a static IP on both lines to achieve the load balancing for by internet usage

many thanks
