Turris MOX: meet our modular router!

April 3, 2018

Turris MOX

After a lot of hard work from our fantastic HW and SW development team, today is the day we can finally say that we are far enough to introduce you to Turris MOXthe first ever modular open-source router!

What does modular mean? Well, for now, we offer 4 modules: Basic (CPU, USB 3.0, microSD slot, GWAN), Extension (mPCIe slot), Ethernet (4× GLAN) and SFP (SFP connector). It is up to you to decide how you want to combine the modules and whether you want a router, an AP, a five port switch, or even a media converter. Just like Turris 1.X and Turris Omnia, Turris MOX will also be open hardware and run on a distribution of OpenWRT. All of these features are thought to give our users maximum freedom - you decide what function you want to use, you decide how you want to hack it! At the same time, as with Omnia, we offer a secure default configuration, an easy setup and most importantly automatic updates

Are you already as excited as we are? To find out more about what individual modules look like and how to combine them, please visit our …

Wi-Fi Upgrade Pack for Turris 1.x

Dec. 11, 2017

The older Turris routers (versions 1.0 and 1.1) still have some of the most powerful hardware available today. The only thing they lack in is modern Wi-Fi hardware. They do not permit a 2,4 and 5GHz bandwidth simultaneously, because they only support 802.11 a/b/g/n standards. To bring also our older models up to date, we have prepared the Wi-Fi Upgrade Pack for our Turris 1.x users. The package has a price of 1600CZK and will bring you up to the 802.11ac standard, that is the fastest available wireless connection. 

You can have a look at the precise contents of the WiFi Upgrade Pack and buy it at the Discomp webshop

The Wi-Fi Upgrade pack is for Turris 1.x routers and not for Turris Omnia. Turris Omnia has 802.11ac Wi-Fi from the factory.

In the following days, we will test the devices thoroughly to check that all issues discovered on the first prototypes were fixed.

More information including all documentation will be released soon.

First prototype of the Turris router

Sept. 2, 2013

After a few long weeks since the start of manufacture, we have the first prototypes of our router in hand. It is the first tangible result of our effort in the area of hardware development, and we all look at it with awe.

First prototype

Because it is necessary to program the low-level functions necessary for the system to start, we do not yet know if it would run. We will post more information on this website, once we know more. Keep your fingers crossed.

The following pictures show Tomáš Rykl, our lead hardware developer, holding one of the boards of the first prototype of our router presently arrived from manufacture.

The rest of the manufactured boards are already in the process of assembly. Because of the number of components, it will take some time.
