Excellent LTE functionality, especially paired with a MobileMark antenna. Works nicely on our RV. Wifi-as-WAN is deficient. Works great for open or simple password-protected situations, but does not work with captive portal networks (e.g. some truck stops, stores) that prompt with a permission page of rules first or ask for login information. Auto-switching between primary and secondary cellular carriers does not work well. As often as not, the switch back will result in a "no device found" and the router claiming there are no SIMs plugged in. Power cycling clears the issue, but it exemplifies the software bugs present in this part of the router software. While useful having two SIMs in the router, expect to switch between them manually as needed.

Have several now and they have been rock solid. Constantly move them around for temporary internet access and they have held up well. Incontrol management makes remote setup of the unit for site conditions easy. Emails can be setup based on data used, built in VPN server.
Everything we needed, all around great units.

Great unit. Easy to set up (and I am not a network guy). Putting in my travel trailer with external antennas.

This product is well built and thought out. We purchased it for an off the grid jobsite trailer in an area where a permanent internet connection is simply not cost effective. It was simple to setup though our Verizon sales rep had a really hard time finding a full size SIM card. He tried the micro SIMs with the adapter but couldn't get them to activate. He finally found an older SIM that worked and now the unit is great.
We found no need for an outside antenna, however, we have the option here. We have used Cradlepoint units in the past - they are mostly plastic and require a mounting kit if you want to mount it to a wall. This unit is all metal with a built in bracket.
We stock Verizon full size SIMs to make it easier for you (or your VZ Rep). If you have any additional needs for the BR1, we can work directly with your VZ rep to include a free full sized VZ SIM and send the IMIE and SIM # to your VZ Rep so that the rep can activate it before the package arrives.

Using with Tieline compared to cradlepoint router has a better build, easy to use, and cleaner interface . Using currently with att but will get a verizon sim as well.

To start with. I have this unit in my semi and the problems I experience are consistent weather I'm parked, driving, or have the unit plugged in at home.
LOVE this product though vary disappointed in the fact that it keeps crapping out.
My first one lasted about 10 months before it started having 3G/4G connection problems. Got it replaced via RMA and I have only had the new one for about 7 months and it is having the same problem with the added problem of massive latency.
My first one I ran through about 200GBs per month on it and the new one about 100GBs per month.
I even have problems loading the user interface some times. I'll be on WiFi and its all crappy so I plug into Ethernet and it work for about 5 minutes and the problem starts again.
It has gotten to the point that I have to restart the BR1 at least 3 times in a 12 hour period if not more and if more than one person is online at one time no one can do any work. Oddly though 2 people can watch Netflix at the same time with out any problem, though I'm betting it works only because of the 2 to 5 minute buffer they have.
Anyway support tickets have been started and so far nothing they have told me to do worked.
I gave this product 3 stars because it is amazing when it does not have problems (5 stars) but if everyone I get has the same problems then I would give it 1 star.
We're sorry you've had so much trouble! We've been working with you and Peplink to get things sorted out and we will continue to do so until the problem is solved. Thanks for all your patience!
