Watch: How to set up The Beast (00:02:27)
Bonded 5G + 4G
With four modems bonding 5G and 4G, The Beast has the best throughput and most redundancy of any plug’n’play bonded cellular solution on the market. Use it for 4K + HD 1080p streaming and any production purpose requiring lots of bandwidth and reliability to succeed. We can even bond any on-site WAN you might have available for extra redundancy.
Super fast router
Featuring a top-of-the range enterprise-grade Peplink router, we’re seeing bonded speeds of up to 150 Mbps upload and 250 Mbps downloads (where local cell towers have the capacity available). With Forward Error Correction feature and live management, you’ll have all the grunt you could possibly need for a seamless stream.
Set your unit free from AC power with both Milwaukee and DeWALT battery capability (use yours or hire ours). Great for remote sites, moving vehicles and jobs where that power drop is taking forever! We’ve added an extra LAN port so you can hard line two devices directly into the unit as well as add any on-site WAN that happens to be available (not required).
The Workhorse features:
Combines one 5G and three 4G(LTE-Advanced) feeds together with any available on-site WiFi or hardline connection for peak performance & uninterrupted transitioning between carriers.
Three Ethernet Ports
Two handy LAN ports to connect devices or switches via hard line.
Plus a WAN port lets you add any on-site connection to the pool for even greater redundancy.
Planning something tricky, somewhere tricky? Run a test at your location ahead of time with full support from our expert techs. If it's not all you hoped for, we'll give you a full refund.
