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 10 GbE 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 2.20 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM, the QHora-301W provides high-performance Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and 2.4 GHz/5 GHz 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 3600 Mbps transfer speed and allowing for more concurrent Wi-Fi clients. With two 10 GbE 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 10 GbE 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.

Qualcomm Quad-core 2.2 GHz IPQ8072A processor, 1 GB RAM; 8 hidden 5dBi antennas; 2x 10 GbE RJ45 port (10G/ 5G/ 2.5G/ 1G/ 100M), 4x 1 GbE RJ45 ports (1G/ 100M/ 10M); Supports Dual-band (2.4 GHz/5 GHz) Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax, and 802.11a/b/g/n/ac), MU-MIMO, OFDMA; Protocol-based firewall, Port forwarding, VPN, and Access Control.

I hope they don't plan on selling this in Sweden as QHora is translating to QWhore. :D

I've been waiting for this one,.....

Not sure I'm willing to buy now but I am interested. Availability will likely be spotty at best for some time. It took about a month or more before I could get my hands on a QNAP QSW-1105-5T 2.5GbE switch so it should be equally difficult to get ones hands on QNAP QHoraa-301W,.....

Terrible name, sure but good luck finding one.
