The Max BR1 Mini is perfect for RVers and travelers looking to use cellular data to stay connected on the road. You can load up to 2 SIM cards into this router from multiple carriers and select which SIM card and carrier to use. This router will turn your cellular signal into a secure WiFi network of your own, right inside of your RV. * KIT CONTENTS: * Pepwave MAX BR1 Mini Router * 1x Molex (4-pin) to AC Wall-Style Power Supply * 1x 12V Molex 4-Pin to Cigarette-Style Power Supply * 1x GPS Antenna * 2x WiFi Antennas * 2x 2dBi LTE Antennas * FREE TechnoRV Learning Series for Pepwave Routers * FREE TechnoRV Customer Support

The Max BR1 Mini has a single Cat 6 cellular modem. A single cellular modem means you can only use one SIM card (cellular plan) at a time to access the internet. Note: This unit takes the smallest "Nano" SIM card. Although the Max BR1 Mini only has one cellular modem, it allows you to use 2 SIM cards (cellular plans) in the one modem and switch between the two plans as needed. This allows for the redundancy often needed to stay connected while on the road. You can also set limits and rules for when you want to use one cell plan over the other which is a great feature when you are trying to conserve one plan and only use it as a backup. You are not using both cell plans at the same time with this router; however, there are routers available that allow you to use 2 SIM cards at the same time which will improve your connectivity. (See the Max Transit DUO routers.) What is the optional Failover License? The Max BR1 Mini does not come out of the box with WiFi as WAN capabilities, which means you cannot use it to access campground or local WiFi networks. You can add an optional failover software license for $99, which enables Ethernet and unlocks the WiFi as WAN feature. The failover license will allow you to use the BR1 Mini to connect to campground WiFi using a dual band connection (2.4 and 5 GHz). If you plan to use your Max BR1 Mini for cellular only, then you do not need to purchase the additional $99 failover license. If you choose to not add it at the time of purchase, don’t worry; you can add it at any time. This is a digital item that is permanently connected to the router it is purchased for. For this reason, failover licenses are nonrefundable and nontransferrable. Supports All Major Carrier Networks US Carriers: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular International Carriers: Rogers, TELUS, and Bell Supports Carrier Aggregation: Cat 6 routers like the Max BR1 Mini support Carrier Aggregation (CA), which means they have the ability to connect to 2 cellular bands at the same time. By combining more than one cellular band together, it is possible to increase the bandwidth available. With the Max BR1 Mini you can choose which primary band you want to use (the tower selects the second) which allows you to avoid the crowded primary band used by phones and hotspots. To see the bands supported by the Max BR1 Mini, see the specs listed below. Increased Throughput and Speeds: Because of Carrier Aggregation, the Max BR1 Mini has higher throughput and speeds than a Cat 4 router or phone. The Max BR1 Mini has theoretical download speeds of 300 Mbps and upload speeds of 50 Mbps. This router features Wifi 6, the latest and greatest wifi technology, promising faster, more efficient wifi performance.

We only recommend the dual-modem Pepwave routers to users that plan to utilize 2 or more cellular plans at the same time. If you are using only one SIM card, a dual-modem router will not benefit you.
We recommend using any of the three major carriers: T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T. Be sure to have your router’s IMEI number(s) ready before buying a SIM card and data plan. At TechnoRV, we offer Verizon plans with 300GB of data for as low as $129 a month. These plans work perfectly with the Pepwave routers and are delivered as a SIM card that is ready to be placed in the device when you receive it. Your data plan can be paused when you are not using it and they require no contract.
No, the Pepwave works great without it, but be aware that the Pepwave can have better connectivity and increased speeds using a roof-mounted antenna. You can always add a roof-mounted antenna later if you find the Pepwave needs help accessing the signal where you are.
InControl2 is an online management system for Pepwave devices. It allows you to manage your Pepwave remotely. InControl2 is best used for those who have fleets of trucks or RVs and need to track and manage them. However, some RVers do find InControl2 to be helpful. We use it at TechnoRV to go into customers' routers remotely when we are doing Pepwave phone support.
All of our routers include a PrimeCare Plan for the first year after purchase. Your one-year PrimeCare Plan includes 1 year of InControl2 access, 1 year of SpeedFusion, and 1 year of warranty coverage. Pepwave Learning Series, TechnoRV 2023 Page 40 After the first complimentary year of coverage, you can subscribe to another year of your Care Plan to continue to have warranty coverage and the other great perks listed above.
While the Pepwave Cellular Router is not a cellular booster, it is certainly very powerful. The Pepwave has the ability to see and use cell signal bands that your phone can’t even see sometimes. Of course, this will vary by location.
The WeBoost Cell Boosters and the Pepwave can work very well together. Just be sure that the Pepwave INSIDE antennas are installed on the router, then place the router in front of the WeBoost inside antenna. If you have a roof-mounted antenna, you will have to disconnect the cellular antenna cables and put the inside antennas back on to utilize this. Your router will receive the cellular boost and should perform very well for you in areas where your cell signal is poor.
Band 71 is a T-Mobile cellular band that can access cellular signals from further distances making it popular for RVers who like to "get away" from crowded areas which tend to be the areas with the best signal.
SpeedFusion is an awesome feature of Pepwave, and it allows you to do several things to improve your internet speeds and reliability: Bonding, Hot Failover, and WAN Smoothing.
Bonding is when SpeedFusion takes all available resources for accessing the internet that are in Priority 1 and bonds them together to increase speeds. This is really only helpful if you have a dual-modem router like the Pepwave Max Transit Pro Duo Cat 7-Cat 12 LTE Router and have 2+ cellular or WAN connections in Priority 1. SpeedFusion can be used with single-modem routers, but you must have multiple connections in Priority 1 to utilize this capability, but the single-modem routers only allow you to have one cellular connection in Priority 1. Unless you have a hard-lined WAN connection or a reliable WiFi source along with a cellular connection, this feature will do you no good and should be avoided.
Hot failover is a SpeedFusion feature that can be utilized when you have 2 connections prioritized in the Pepwave. This provides a seamless move from one connection to another without experiencing any disconnection of service. This only works when you have multiple connections prioritized (Cellular or WAN) which means if you have a single-modem router, it would only work if you have a connection in addition to your cellular connection. For this reason, we do not recommend using Hot Failover through SpeedFusion if you have a single-modem router. If you have a dual-modem router with multiple cellular connections, SpeedFusion’s hot failover feature may be beneficial to you.
SpeedFusion can use multiple connections at one time and determine which is best in order to “smooth” out your internet connection. This is helpful if you are doing live broadcasts. The downside to this is it increases the data you are using since it is using multiple connections and only using the best portion of each to produce a consistent connection. If you are not doing live broadcasts or something similar, we do not recommend using WAN Smoothing in SpeedFusion. In addition, if you do not have multiple cellular or WAN connections in Priority 1, WAN Smoothing will not be useful to you.
