The newly released QHora-301W from QNAP provides a Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN) Router with Wi-Fi 6 and dual 10GbE ports with a fanless design for near silent operations. This next-generation router provides not only remote multi-site VPN and complete connectivity, but also QuWAN Cloud Orchestrator topology and enhanced security features, providing a flexible and reliable high-efficiency network structure for remote working and multi-site businesses.
With an enterprise-grade Qualcomm Quad-core 2.2GHz processor and 1GB RAM, the QHora-301W provides high-performance Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and 2.4GHz/5GHz dual-band wireless transmission.
Featuring eight internal antennas and MU-MIMO, the QHora-301W provides the perfect wireless pattern views to enhance Wi-Fi coverage signals, delivering up to 3600Mbps transfer speed and allowing for more concurrent Wi-Fi clients. Coupled with the Wi-Fi 6, providing transfer speeds of 1.38x faster than Wi-Fi 5, the QHora-301W will deliver faster wireless speeds for mobile and smart home devices, enabling multiple concurrent users.
With two 10GbE ports and four Gigabit ports, the QHora-301W offers flexible WAN/LAN configurations for optimized network deployment, achieving high-speed LAN, streamlined cross-site file transfer and auto mesh multi-site VPN. Furthermore, the QHora-301W enables interconnected Mesh VPN topology via QuWAN (QNAP’s SD-WAN technology), providing reliable network infrastructure for digital transmission, prioritized network bandwidth, automatic WAN failover and centralized cloud management.
The QHora-301W enhances access security between enterprise VPN and edge connection for remote working. With enterprise-level VAP (Virtual AP), IT staff can configure up to six exclusive SSID groups for different departments or application services. Wi-Fi encryption ensures that users can enjoy high-speed wireless transmission with the utmost security. Additional features (including firewalls, port forwarding, and access controls) can effectively filter and block untrusted connections and login attempts. SD-WAN also provides IPsec encryption VPN, Deep Packet Inspection, and L7 Firewall to ensure the security of VPN network transmission.
With planned future software upgrades, the QHora will add supports of QuWAN prioritized network bandwidth and L7 Firewall functions from 2021 Quarter 1 to add to the already impressive network capability.
“The growth in bandwidth-demanding applications and the transition to remote working requires an investment in secure Wi-Fi 6 and 10GbE connectivity,” said Judy Chen, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “the QHora-301W combines breakthrough speed with Wi-Fi encryption, firewalls, and QuWAN SD-WAN technology to help users ensure a safe network environment for accessing confidential and sensitive data.”
Built for modern IT environments, the QHora-301W can be universally installed throughout homes and offices and is compatible with VESA mounts. The fanless cooling and low-noise design also ensures cool, stable, and quiet operations even when under heavy load.
