SpeedFusion Cloud: Disable encryption?

Just starting to use the Pepwave MAX Transit DUO LTE-A M2M.
Quick question to start off with:

When using SpeedFusion Cloud is it possible to switch off the encryption?
So the max throughput will go up from 60Mbps to 100Mbps.

I understand when running your own PepVPN it is possible for sure within the profiles. But regarding SpeedFusion Cloud I see some confusing answers here on the forum.


Hi @EdwinV, welcome to the forum. It’s not possible to toggle encryption on SpeedFusion Could tunnels as you can do on regular PepVPN/SpeedFusion tunnels.


Thanks for your quick reply @Rokas_Musteikis. That’s unfortunate. Could you give me a bit more details about why this is? And about possible workarounds?

Are the same functionalities possible by setting up our own unencrypted VPN over f.e. AWS? Or are there more benefits from using SpeedFusion Cloud? I can imagine for live streaming a lot of people wouldn’t need an encrypted VPN. Thanks!

Host your own FusionHub somewhere, although depending on what licences you have on your TST you may find you are missing bonding vs just hot failover.

FusionHub Solo is a free licence for a single PepVPN peer - you get the licence from within your InControl account.

Search the forums, there are a few guides on how to get the VM deployed on various public cloud providers, which for most use cases will work out fine and is relatively inexpensive to run depending on your bandwidth usage.

Thanks @WillJones. So if I understand correctly: If we setup our own FusionHub (Solo) at a cloud provider we will get exactly the same functionality as SpeedFusion Cloud? We do have a PrimeCare license, so that shouldn’t be an issue.

I find it very remarkable Peplink doesn’t offer SpeedFusion Cloud without encryption as an option. Especially because the hardware will run better without… :slight_smile:

We’ll investigate further with some specialists to setup the FusionHub. That’s a bit out of my league.

Yes, as long as you have prime care active on the unit you should have access to all the bonding licences and so on. In some regards you will have more features than SFC when you host the hub yourself as well as the ability to do things like NAT port forwarding from the public IP of your hub to devices behind the SF tunnel which can be very handy.

For a guide on how to deploy a FH to Vultr have a look at this video:
