Interfaces (LAN, WAN, WAN2)
Within this section inside of a given site, you are able to modify settings for the LAN, WAN, and WAN2 (when applicable) for the SimpleWAN device. Please be sure to update WAN settings when moving a SimpleWAN device to a new physical location or changing the ISP information for the primary interface.
Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the simplified solution for daily Networking needs. It provides a piece of mind by reducing risks and hassles with a lower cost and ease of management by providing diverse solutions.
Load Balancing provides a clear Dual WAN solution that allows both your ISP to simultaneously work actively. This delivers speed and a no drop answer to your Networking needs. The easy setup can be done right onto your SimpleWAN dashboard.
Failover, similar to Load Balancing, provides a Dual WAN solution for those who prefer to keep their secondary ISP in the back burner until necessary. It is a no drop solution that quickly switches you Primary and Secondary ISP rapidly. It has a wide variety of options to provide for those that wish to use this feature.

vMPLS takes your standard MPLS solution and makes it easier. Your multitude of sites are now easier to set up, easier to connect, and easier to maintain. The need for all sites to remain with the same ISP has been tossed out the window. Coupled with your Failover or Load Balancing, vMPLS will remain connected.
vMPLSSetting up vMPLS is a snap. From the Account page scroll down to the vMPLS Groups header. Click the plus + on the upper right.
In order to be in the same vMPLS group, the devices will all need the same /16 LAN subnet. For example, in order to be eligible to be in the same vMPLS group the sites would all need to have 192.64.X.X (i.e. 184.108.40.206/24, 220.127.116.11/24, etc…) When the sites sync again, they will now be part of an active vMPLS group (usually syncs happen within 5 minutes, but please verify that you see that the sites you have selected have updated on their sync times since the creation of the group at their respective Site Overview pages).
Types of vMPLS
Type 1 – This is a traditional hub and spoke model where our algorithms will choose the best host out of the sites connected to the group. All sites will speak through the Host and then back out to the other sites. A new host will be selected if the old host goes offline or experiences connection issues.
- Requires one (1) Active Site with direct access to the Internet (i.e. Bridged, pass-through, unNATted connection, etc.) to act as the Host.
- Works even if other sites are on Double NAT.
- Does not work with vLANs.
- If the Host is the ONLY site with direct access to internet, please expect the sites to be down.
Type 2 – This is a full mesh group where each site is connected to each site. We recommend using type 2 for most situations.
- Requires all sites to have direct access to the internet. Does not have a host.
- Does not work well with NATted infrastructures
- Works with vLANs as long as vLANs follow IP Guidelines mentioned above. Rules may be necessary for inter-LAN communications.
- Will actively change IP addresses for sites that are Dynamic

SimpleWan intro to vMPLS –
vMPLS incorporates the simplicity of Plug n Play with the advanced routing technologies typically attributed to MPLS networks. This allows the solution to be customized to fit the needs of each business and business
location, no matter how big or small; whether it is in the big city or an oil rig off the coast – vMPLS can connect them all.
vMPLS is a service-based solution that provides instant and secure, fully-meshed connectivity between offices,
data centers, and remote users, no matter what type of Internet connection they use, or where they are located.
Software Defined Virtualization also provides an environment to allow your Failover or Load Balancing to keep your calls connected to your provider with no drop at all. The seamless switch between one ISP to another keeps the call going and your call quality at a good state.
Designed with scalability and flexibility in mind, vMPLS will grow with your organization at a fraction of the cost traditionally associated with WAN solutions. By leveraging multiple ISPs and access types, a VMPLS network is faster, smarter, simpler, and cheaper. While other hardware solutions out there will cost upwards of $30,000 per location, only SimpleWan is able to provide all of these benefits in a cost-effective solution that the average business can easily afford.
Faster network speeds, greater visibility, more security, and less downtime — all wrapped up in one service no
matter where the office is or what kind of Internet access they use. That is Simplifying the WAN.
Traffic Prioritization System
Also known as packet prioritization system, this feature is a patented technology used to manage network traffic which delays some or all datagrams to bring them into compliance with a desired traffic profile.
Traffic Prioritization is used to optimize or guarantee performance, improve latency, and/or increase usable bandwidth for some kinds of packets by delaying other kinds. If a link becomes saturated to the point where there is a significant level of contention (either upstream or downstream) latency can rise substantially.
Traffic Prioritization can be used to prevent this from occurring and keep latency in check.
Traffic Prioritization provides a means to control the volume of traffic being sent into a network in a specified period, or the maximum rate at which the traffic is sent. This system will prevent any one user from being able to access 100% of the Internet connection at any given time. This prevents an abusive user, or user with a virus from monopolizing all of the office Internet traffic.
Software Defined Virtualization (SDV)
SD-V will encrypt any traffic from the site back to the carrier as well as provide a no drop solution for the phone system on site.

Based on a 3 year agreement with the carrier
The Bolton Technical Long Ranger is the highest continuous gain parabolic cellular antenna on the market. It covers the full range of cellular and WiFi bands, including all carriers worldwide. The entire breadth of the cellular and WiFi spectrum is covered here.
Compared to other wideband antennas with averages of +8 to +12 dB – be they omni, yagi, or LPDA – the Bolton Technical Long Ranger provides up to +28 dB. That’s a power increase of up to 15X! With a radiation cone between 4 to 20 degrees, it allows for narrow, fine-tuned, and farther distances than most rival antennas.
The Long Ranger is ideal for rural communities in extremely weak signal areas who have trouble even reaching their nearest cell tower, and for enterprise, who want to get the most out of their commercial booster installation.
The Long Ranger will also work in urban areas, cutting through RF noise to provide a direct conduit to clear cellular or WiFi.
The Big Dog, the Flagship, the Boss Antenna. This thing is the real deal.
