Product Description

Peplinks' industry-leading line of cellular routers promises ultimate performance, rugged dependability, and unmatched device management features. We've chosen to partner with Peplink for their shared vision of helping people get online anywhere, using cell signal.

The Peplink Balance 20X is the most versatile 4G/5G router for use in homes, offices, industrial spaces, and even on the go.

The Balance 20X delivers excellent routing throughput and, includes an embedded cellular modem, and it also supports the new FlexModule Mini so that you can optionally add a second, high-performance 5G radio.

The Peplink Balance 20X has everything you need in a branch router - including a great price and scalable flexibility. 

Key Features of the Peplink Balance 20X

  • Multiple WAN Connections including 1x Embedded Cat7 LTE Modem, 1x Wired WAN, and WiFi as WAN
  • Carrier Aggregation of 2x Download and 2x Upload
  • Expansion via FlexModule to add an additional 1x Embedded 5G/Cat20 LTE Modem with Carrier Aggregation of 5x Download and 3x Upload
  • Wi-Fi mesh support over 802.11 AC Wave 2
  • Advanced Device Management via InControl Cloud Management or Local Web Administrative Interface
  • Advanced QoS Features including Individual Bandwidth Limit and Application Prioritization
  • PepVPN/SpeedFusion, capable of WAN Bonding, Hot Failover, WAN Smoothing, and Site-to-Site VPN
  • Redundant SIM Slots for failover and carrier offloading
  • 4x GbE LAN and 1x GbE WAN Ethernet Ports

The Balance 20X is FCC certified to meet the standards of a wide array of deployment criteria.

FlexModule Upgrade

The upgradability of the Balance 20X lends itself to unrivaled flexibility and makes it ideal for a wide range of deployments

  • The base Balance 20X includes a Cat7 LTE Modem, capable of 2x2 MIMO and a maximum theoretical data rate of 300 Mbps download and 150 Mbps upload. It has two SMA-Female ports for external antennas and offers a great budget router where reliability is more important than speed.
  • The upgraded Balance 20X with the FlexModule 5G/Cat20 LTE expansion card is capable of 4x4 MIMO and a maximum theoretical data rate of 4 Gbps download and 700 Mbps upload. It has four SMA-Female ports for external antennas and turns the Balance 20X into a high-speed connectivity workhorse.
    • Important Note: The FlexModule 5G/Cat20 LTE expansion card does not have support for Verizon's C-Band. If you're using Verizon 5G Home/Business Internet, your connection may be limited by the lack of C-band support. 

Upgrading with the FlexModule also means that you'll have two cellular radios and will be able to do bonding, smoothing and failover between both cellular WANs, on top of the ethernet and WiFi WANs also available. 

Unmatched Carrier Support

The Balance 20X is certified for use on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular. This means you can use a SIM card from one of these carriers in your Peplink to get service. The Balance 20X uses a 4FF Nano SIM (not 2FF like many other routers).

The Cat7 Balance 20X Base modem supports all of the following bands:

  • 4G LTE: B2, B4, B5, B7, B12, B13, B14, B25, B26, B41, B42, B43, B48, B66, B71

The upgraded Balance 20X with a FlexModule 5G/Cat20 LTE modem supports the following bands:

  • 5G Sub 6Ghz: n1, n2, n3, n5, n28, n41, n66, n71, n77, n78, n79
  • 4G LTE: B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B7, B8, B12, B13, B14, B17, B18, B19, B20, B25, B26, B28, B29, B30, B32, B34, B38, B39, B40, B41, B42, B43 B46, B48, B66, B71

Includes PrimeCare and SpeedFusion

We include 1 year of PrimeCare with your Peplink Balance 20X and FlexModule. PrimeCare includes access to InControl, the router's warranty, a FusionHub license, and access to Peplink’s state-of-the-art SpeedFusion.

Peplink’s patented SpeedFusion technology is the engine behind a number of powerful capabilities unique to Peplink routers, including WAN Bonding, WAN Smoothing, Hot Failover, traffic steering, and more.

PrimeCare is renewable at $49 per year after the first year. If PrimeCare is not renewed, SpeedFusion features are disabled, but the functionality of the router will remain unaffected.

Bundled With our High-Performance MIMO External Antenna Kits

Using a MIMO antenna outside your building, pointed at the nearest tower, can help you get the fastest 5G and 4G LTE data rates possible. It's so helpful in fact, that we've written up a guide specifically for using external antennas with the Balance 20X.

We’ve bundled four different MIMO External Antenna Kits with the Balance 20X: two 2x2 MIMO antenna options with the base router, and two 4x4 MIMO antenna options with the upgraded router with the FlexModule.

In both cases the two options are a panel antenna and log periodic antennas. Both are high gain and directional, but the Log Periodic Antennas have a slightly narrower beamwidth:

  • MIMO 2x2/4x4 Panel External Antenna: For most users, the best external antenna choice for the Peplink Balance 20X or upgraded Balance 20X with FlexModule is our 4x4 MIMO Panel Antenna kit. This antenna doesn’t require line-of-sight to the tower.
  • MIMO 2x2/4x4 Log Periodic Antenna: If you have a line of sight to the nearest tower, we recommend using a 4x4 MIMO Log Periodic Antenna kit instead. The higher gain on these antennas can get you better performance, but only when you have a straight shot to the tower.

Our MIMO External Antennas cover 600 - 6000 MHz and support all the same frequencies as the Peplink Balance 20X and FlexModule 5G/Cat20 LTE Expansion Card, and more. These include:

  • AT&T: B2/n2, B4, B5/n5, B12, B17, B29, B30, B46, B66/n66, n77
  • Verizon: B2/n2, B4, B5/n5, B13, B46, B48/n48, B66/n66, n77
  • T-Mobile: B2, B4, B5, B12, B25, B26, B41/n41, B46, B66, B71/n71
  • Private 4G LTE and 5G: CBRS, B48/n48

Our kits include everything you need to mount your external antennas and connect them to your Peplink, including our one-of-a-kind Twin-RS240 or Quad-RS240 cables (depending on whether your kit includes a 2x2 external antenna or 4x4 external antenna.

The Twin- and Quad-RS240 cable assemblies have two or four strands of low loss RS240 coaxial cable respectively, glued and sheathed, with SMA-Male connectors on the "indoor" end, to minimize the bulk of running multiple cables and make installation easier than ever.
