Project Turris is a service helping to protect its user's home network with the help of a special router. It is a not-for-profit research project of CZ.NIC, z. s. p. o., the registry of the Czech national top level domain .CZ.
The hardware design is available under an open source license. It is handed out to approx. 2000 selected users free of charge, requiring them to participate in the security research project.
Processor Freescale P2020 running at 1200 MHz
of DDR3 RAM in a SO-DIMM slot
NOR and 256 MB
Dedicated gigabit WAN and 5 gigabit LAN
ports (using the QCA8337N switch chip)
Wifi 802.11a/b/g/n with 3x3 MIMO and removable external antennas
2x USB 2.0 port (+ 1x USB3.0 Turris v2)
1 free miniPCIe slot
UART, SPI and I2C connected to a pin-header for easy customization
Power consumption is 9.5 W without load, 12.5 W with CPU load and 14 W with maximum wired and Wifi network load. Measured power consumption includes the supplied power adapter.
Due to high interest in powerful open hardware router, CZ.NIC is going to develop a new hardware design with lower price, which would be available for purchase. It should available in second half of 2015. Detailed specs could be probably found on project webpage.
