The Turris Omnia

Turris Omnia is a crowdfunded open-source SOHO network router developed by the CZ.NIC association.

On 31 January 2016 the Turris Omnia was presented at FOSDEM 2016.[1]

Routers from campaign were delivered in 2016.[2] It is planned to end InDemand phase of campaign in November 2016 and start selling routers through resellers, such as Alza.cz, which operates in many European countries.

Design[edit]

The Turris Omnia is designed to provide its owner with freedom in use. As such it uses open-source software.[3] In addition, the creators published the electrical schematics.[4] A second design decision is to provide the router with automated software updates, so software vulnerabilities can be addressed quickly, a unique feature among SOHO routers.[5]

Thirdly, the router is intended to yield a sufficient performance that it can handle gigabit traffic and double as home server, NAS and print server.[3]

Funding[edit]

Funding for the Turris Omnia was attempted via a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo with a target of 100 000 US$ by 12 January 2016. As the deadline passed, the funding had reached 857 000 US$.[2]

As of 20 August 2016 the funding had reached 1 154 390 US$.[2]

Specifications[edit]

The base model has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB flash storage, a real-time clock with battery backup, a SFP module and a hardware cryptographically secure pseudorandom number generator. Via Mini PCI Express it supports WIFI in the form of 3×3 MIMO 802.11ac and the older 2×2 MIMO 802.11b/g/n. Its connectivity consists of:

It is possible to buy expansion to 2GB of RAM.
