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.


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 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]

The Turris Omnia runs the TurrisOS, an OpenWrt derivative. It is powered by a 1.6 GHz dual-core Marvell Armada 385 ARM CPU. 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.
