The optional failover/WAN license enables the WAN port (to support wired cable/DSL connections), the WiFi as WAN feature (to pick up external WiFi networks), and failover. If you do NOT need those features, you do not need the additional license (if you decide you want them in the future, the license can be purchased any time to unlock those features). If you only plan to use the cellular connection, you do not need the optional license!

There is a setup fee of $10 for all warranty/license items (you will see this fee in your cart at checkout). If you are purchasing multiple warranties/licenses, you will only be charged the fee ONCE, and if you order more than 5, this fee is WAIVED.

It's a good idea to set up your router's wireless network name and password so that nearby users can't use your connection without your knowledge. It is fairly easy to do, but for those who want their router already configured when it arrives, we can set up your router with the network name and password of your choice before shipping for $15.

Enables OOBM to access external devices via cellular

This router features an embedded modem and you will need a SIM card with active service from a compatible provider to use it. The BR1 has a standard 2FF SIM slot - if you plan to use a micro or nano SIM, you'll need a SIM adapter.

The Pepwave MAX BR1 Mini is the ideal mobile broadband router for fleet management, video surveillance, kiosks and other M2M applications. This rugged metal router comes with an embedded modem that is compatible with 4G LTE and 3G networks throughout North America, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Two redundant SIM slots are available that can be used for separate carriers, and by using the FusionHub Central Management settings, the router can be set to automatically switch off if you reach a data cap or cross a country border. Advanced GPS fleet tracking is built into every MAX BR1 Mini so you can manage and monitor buses, taxi cabs, semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles. This can be done from any Internet-connected device when you use Peplink’s InControl cloud management system. Even if the primary line is down, you can still gather data and configure devices by using an RS-232 port adapter that supports out-of-band management and provides an Ethernet LAN port. Any power source will be secure as well when you use the included AC terminal block for reliable power distribution in vehicles, ATMs and other non-standard locations.

With a BR1 Mini mobile router, users can experience 4G LTE throughput speeds of up to 65 Mbps that have the integrated security of Pepwave’s SpeedFusion VPN and AES encryption. This customizable networking tool can be used as a single-device primary cellular connector or as an adapter to provide cellular data service to a non-enabled router. It comes with four antennas for cellular, Wi-Fi and GPS. This lightweight router is backed by 3Gstore’s expert mobile broadband knowledge and leading customer support. Learn more by downloading the product brochure below or reading the MAX BR1 Mini customer reviews.

The optional failover/WAN license (see above) enables the WAN port (to support wired cable/DSL connections), the WiFi as WAN feature (to pick up external WiFi networks), and failover. If you do NOT need those features, you do not need the additional license (if you decide you want them in the future, the license can be purchased any time to unlock those features). If you only plan to use the cellular connection, you do not need the optional license!

So much better than a hotspot

Date Added: 02/23/2018 by Buyer. (EVANSVILLE, IN)
Less expensive than some.

Date Added: 02/01/2018 by Ryan J. (Salem, VA)
Like the size, like the abilities, somewhat. One MAJOR issue is that you cannot use the WAN port, or Wi-Fi as WAN unless you purchase that failover license, which is about 30% of the cost of the machine. If you could have included, it would be great, without it, you have to pay more to have the same functionality as a regular router, which isn't a dealbreaker, but is disappointing.

The best shopping experience I’ve had so far. All my questions were answered and this item was recommended and it works perfectly for my application. 3G is at the top of my bookmark list. Very happy customer!

With T-Mobile rolling out band 12 in my area, this BR1 mini advanced was the best option for me. Easy set up, easy mounting and easy to use, a great all around choice for a cellular router.

I've had the BR1 Mini for about a month and I love this little router. Mainly because I am not computer literate and I didn't have to jump through hoops with firmware updates and all that stuff to get started. I simply put the sim card in it,. plugged it into the wall,. put the password in and it took off. Its built rugged and its worth every penny. Thanks 3GStore !

Very impressed with the Pepwave MAX BR1 Mini.
Also thanks to Kevin / 3GStore for the excellent presales advice.

Previous 4GLTE Router with external antenna was connecting at 1 mbps / 0.4 mbps. I didn't break 1 mbps this summer with it.

Hesitated on buying a replacement router (use for backup, and wasn't very excited having such slow speeds thinking it was 50/50 whether I would get much out of buying this new gear due to my area.) But decided to give this a try. Very glad I did!

Pepwave MAX BR1 Mini with external antenna connected at LTE and sometimes LTE-A speeds and achieved between 3 and 10 mbps down and 1 and 10 mbps up at my difficult location (long distance from cell tower).

Boots up in half the time as the previous router.

Dual SIM slot implementation is Great as I was able to try verizon and att with the click of a button - it changes over in a minute or so and connects to the carrier of choice (with preactivated SIM card).

Primarily purchased this for AT&T since my verizon iphone never worked here unless I took a ride with it some distance. Then with this, found I was able to get a verizon LTE connection here which I've never gotten before on either the MIFI or iphone. Delivered 1-2 mbps down and 3-7 mbps up. Very consistent connection. Verizon is looking better to me now, though I'll probably still primarily use it for ATT, love the dual SIM option with switch at the touch of a button for backup.

Interface is simple and to the point.

Signal strength status updates more quickly than my previous router which is helpful.

After the first 24 hours with this, I'd give it 5 out of 5 stars and then some.

Very good product, and 3GStore offered excellent advice and very fast shipping.
