Network Topology for Peplink SpeedFusion

SpeedFusion provides variety and flexibility in deploying your network. You may choose to create a network in a **Point-to-Point, Fully Meshed or Star topology**, or you may even combine the two set ups to create a more advanced network.

Meshed How-to configure?

In the following illustration, the network is composed of three Peplink Balance 380 units. In case a connection goes down between any two locations, this setup provides an alternative path for your traffic. For instance, if the VPN connection goes down between offices in San Francisco and Minneapolis, these two offices are still connected through the Houston office.

Star How-to configure?

A Peplink Balance 380/580/710/1350 will act as a central hub for branch offices. In the illustration below, regional offices in San Francisco and Minneapolis make independent SpeedFusion VPN connections to their headquarters in New York. San Francisco office will be able to access Minneapolis office through the New York headquarters even though they are not directly connected to each other.

All branch offices’ LAN subnets have to be unique. If your router is placed behind a firewall unit, please read this article.
