Original Press Release:
QNAP Launches the QHora-301W - Next-Generation Wi-Fi 6 and 10GbE Dual-Port SD-WAN Router with a Qualcomm IPQ8072A Processor
Taipei, Taiwan, November 6, 2020– QNAP® Systems, Inc. (QNAP), a leading computing, networking, and storage solution innovator, today released the QHora-301W, a Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN) Router with Wi-Fi 6 and dual 10GbE ports. 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. With eight 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. 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.
“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.
Note: QHora will add supports of QuWAN prioritized network bandwidth and L7 Firewall functions from 2021 Q1.
