Low cost OpenWRT based custom wireless routers with advanced features

Wireless routers have become ubiquitous as a cost-effective way of creating local wireless (e.g. Wi-Fi) networks within limited physical areas, typically encompassing a residence or business. These routers are sometimes referred to as access points, as they provide a point of access to the Internet or an intranet.

US based startup was developing cloud managed Wi-Fi routers/APs using OpenWRT with advanced features like Mobility, Hotspot, Application level filtering, traffic shaping for ISPs, MSMEs & individual consumers with an aim to democratize connectivity.

Softnautics helped the client in developing solution for the OpenWRT based routers. Our expertise in networking & wireless domain helped them in quick customization of hostapd, captive portals & OpenWRT firmware for their use-cases.
