The Transit Duo has 4 sim slots allowing you to load this router with multiple sim cards from multiple carriers allowing you to select which sim/carrier is in use by the modem(s). The signal from your cellular connection is then re-broadcasted wirelessly inside your coach or travel trailer using the units high powered 802.11ac/a/n and 802.11b/g/n 2x2 MIMO WiFi antennas. You get powerful 2Ghz (long range) and 5Ghz (high speed) wireless connectivity while also getting wired ethernet ports for your most demanding devices like VOIP phones or desktop computer/workstations.
You can also utilize the Transit Wifi-As-Wan functionality to connect to campground wifi in addition to utilizing the cellular modem.

The unit accepts 12v inputs (bare wire screw-down terminals) or you can use the included AC adapter for 110v installation. For mobile use the device can also be powered by the dual micro usb ports that can utilize a portable battery bank to power the Transit Duo.
Dual Modem Explained
The Transit DUO included in this bundle has two embedded modems. This will allow you to utilize two cellular connections AT THE SAME TIME, providing advanced traffic routing and load balancing capabilities and immediate failover from one provider to another as well as the addition of 2 additional (4 total) sim slots. The PrimeCare licensing also provides you with access to SpeedFusion and FusionHub licensing allowing you to create a single "bonded" cellular connection across multiple cellular/wifi-as-wan connections*. Cellular load balancing is possible right out of the box without SpeedFusion allowing you to utilize 2 sim cards at the same time. Internet traffic can be routed in a variety of ways using Peplink's proprietary Outbound Policy Management Algorithms. Note: SpeedFusion & FusionHub are advanced features that require a working knowledge of networking and cloud hosting to configure. This is not included in our setup and training services. These features are not required to take advantage of a dual modem configuration. For additional information please contact us at [email protected]
