SDX

Modular Enterprise Grade Router

As a member of our “X” series, the SDX offers extreme performance and future proof design at a practical price point. The SDX can handle the bandwidth requirements of any enterprise branch network. The SDX supports a FlexModule, enabling you to customize the router with your choice of ports, as well as instantly apply new technology as we release new modules.

Future Proof Design

The SDX supports a FlexModule, enabling you to customize the router with your choice of ports, as well as instantly apply new technology as it will be released and available.

Peplink team will build additional FlexModules as new technologies such as 5G emerge. Simply insert the new FlexModule and the SDX will become 5G ready; no need to purchase a new router.

Modular System. Complete Flexibility

3x cellular WAN

Combine cellular links for wireless SD-WAN backup to the primary connection. 5G FlexModule coming soon!

8x copper WAN/LAN

Connect PoE-enabled modems on the WAN, or connect PoE devices such as cameras, IP phones, and Wi-Fi APs on the LAN.

4x fiber WAN/LAN

Build an all-Fiber network by connecting Fiber WANs and LAN Switches.

Enterprise Ready

Even without a FlexModule, the SDX is already prepared for any enterprise branch deployment. It comes equipped with 2x Ethernet WAN, 2x Gigabit Fiber WAN, and 2x USB WAN, enabling connectivity from multiple sources. The 8x integrated LAN ports can also power devices via PoE+.

Speed & Reliability. Brought by SpeedFusion™

SpeedFusion allows users to combine any number of connections together to form a point-to-point link to achieve what others cannot:

Combine the bandwidth of several mobile connections to form an ultra-fast data link. Sustain bandwidth-hungry and latency sensitive tasks without the need for fixed lines.

Hot Failover maintains secure tunnels over all available WAN links to keep the network up and running when a connection drops out. If a WAN link fails, SpeedFusion instantly routes traffic to a working tunnel for uninterrupted VoIP sessions.

SpeedFusion is carrier agnostic and our products are certified with multiple carriers. By combining the coverage network of several mobile carriers, chances of running into a network blindspot or congestion is minimized.

With the help of WAN smoothing network traffic will be assigned to WAN connection with the lowest latency. Use multiple WAN connections to create a single, jitter-free data stream.

FirstNet Ready

FirstNet (band 14) provides first responders with a specialized LTE network with more priority and network capacity. The HD4 MBX supports band 14, providing additional coverage as the situation demands.

Unbreakable Access to Cloud Applications

Whether via datacenter or Azure/AWS cloud, businesses now access their vital ERP, CRM, and POS applications online. To ensure absolute business continuity, the Balance SDX combines Ethernet and SFP+ WAN into an unbreakable SpeedFusion VPN.

End-to-End Fiber Network for Branch Offices

Insert a fiber FlexModule onto your SDX to create an all-fiber local network. Use the SDX’s built-in WAN ports to combine SFP+ and Ethernet links into a super-fast SpeedFusion VPN connection. Then use the fiber FlexModule to connect 4x 48-port fiber switches to the SDX. This creates a full fiber local network with optimimal connectivity between each client.

* WAN ports are configured as a LAN ports by default, configuration is changeable on the Web Admin.
