Need Another Cellular Modem? Add a FlexModule Mini
The Balance 20x has a FlexModule Mini slot which will support all kinds of WAN technology. So when it's time to add a second LTE or even 5G connection, the Balance 20x will be ready.
Add Cellular Backup
Back up your wired WAN connection with a cellular link (up to two with the FlexModule Mini and redundant SIM cards). When a line goes down, your office won't even notice.
Wi-Fi Mesh Support
Along with an AP Controller, this feature allows for a mesh extension to your network, which can expand network coverage and minimize dead zones.
