Power Meets Flexibility

Introducing the Peplink SDX Pro!

Datasheets: SDX Pro Base Unit | FlexModules

With its extreme power and innovative modular design, Peplink’s Balance SDX has long been a gold standard for futureproof enterprise multi-WAN routers. Now, with the SDX Pro, Peplink has taken another major leap forward.

At 24 Gbps, the SDX Pro doubles the throughput of the Balance SDX. Its two FlexModule slots allow you to choose the right ports for your specific deployment, and to easily swap out as technology and your needs evolve. And with up to 2 TB of SSD storage, it’s ready to meet any edge computing need, with plenty of space to host virtual machines, Docker containers, websites, and applications.

Once again, Peplink has demonstrated a true commitment to delivering unbreakable connectivity. You’re even protected against everyday clumsiness, with two hot-swappable power inputs to ensure your network stays live even if a cable gets knocked out. Finally, native support for the SpeedFusion Cloud gives you access to a global, unbreakable VPN.

Meet Jon Kellogg, FrontierUS Partner Development Manager!

A member of the FrontierUS team since 1999, Jon is an expert in helping our partner resellers achieve their business goals.

What does a day in your life look like?

It starts out at 7 AM on Monday morning, after I go to the gym. I make some breakfast at the office (typically some sort of omelette), have some coffee, go through my emails, and set my plan for the day.

Then the rest of the team starts rolling in. Bad jokes commence, as do emails and phone conversations with partners discussing everything from the appropriate Peplink device to use in a specific scenario, to the origins of specific breeds of dogs (not necessarily with partners, but I’ve had this conversation).

Then I realize it’s 1 PM and I haven’t eaten, so I make lunch (stir fry, leg of lamb, or whatever I have in the fridge). I realize that my plan is off-schedule, so I refocus. The afternoons are typically a blur of more emails, phone conversations, and trying to stick to the plan.

Then all of a sudden it’s Friday and they tell me I have to go home.

What do you love about your job?

All of it. The technical aspects are challenging, which I enjoy, but for me it’s really about the people.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I love hanging out with my wife and daughter and going on adventures with them. I also really like home remodeling projects.

Do you have any pets?

We have two dogs, George and Jack. Neither come to the office. George is too old and angry, kind of like me some days, and Jack is just… he’s just too much for me to handle at the office.

What’s something about you people might not know?

I am not bald. I have simply instructed my hair to stop growing on certain parts of my head.

Meet Matthew Bouren, Channel Sales Account Manager!

An expert in Peplink’s solutions, Matt has been helping FrontierUS partners achieve their goals since 2014.

What does a day in your life look like?

Eighty-five percent of my day is devoted to my partners in an account management capacity. This involves product and sales training, project sizing (making proper recommendations on Peplink gear), troubleshooting and basic technical support, quotes, entering sales orders, basic followup, etc.

The rest of my day is typically devoted to following up on new leads, partner onboarding, and outreach to inactive accounts.

What do you love about your job?

The people I meet and help! I talk with a variety of personalities, and have built a lot of great relationships. When we get great feedback and are able to help our partners it makes our job all that more enjoyable.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I have two young boys who are very active in sports. We really enjoy watching them play. My oldest is plays travel baseball, which keeps us extremely busy. I’m also an avid golfer, and enjoy playing when I have the time.

What’s something about you people might not know?

I actually played a little college golf—two years in community college and one year at SVSU. It was my passion for many years.
