TelcOS™ Melaleuca Firmware


TelcOS™ Melaleuca

Take a look under the hood of Melaleuca, our modified version of OpenWrt®* that powers every Telco Electronics device.  You will not find an ancient kernel or an outdated package on Melaleuca.  The advantages of running the latest stable Linux kernel and packages are numerous, but start with better performance, more features, and fixed security bugs.  That is why our devices are shipped with the KRACK wifi countermeasures and fixes for other kernel CVE's that can allow unauthorised remote root access.  We specify our hardware using Device Tree, which allows us to only include kernel code relevant to our hardware, leading to a smaller kernel, allowing us to boot faster and perform better.  We are open source, meaning anyone can grab our source code and modify it to suit their exact requirements.  We endeavour to contribute our code upstream so that the improvements we make to Melaleuca can be utilised by the wider community and future IoT and networking products.

Colour Coding (Melaleuca 1.3+)

Easily and intuitively understand signal quality at a glance.  Measuring wireless signals can be complex, so we have identified the key values and rated them with a colour coding scheme.  Values are automatically updated in real time and range from green, to orange to red so you can dial in to the sweet spot.  Your device performs best when all values stay green.



Telco Cloud Management System (TCMS) Support

Deploy, configure and monitor Telco devices via the Cloud

The Telco Cloud Management System makes it easy to remotely manage and monitor all of your Telco Electronics devices including Telco T1 and Telco X1 Pro. Conveniently deploy configurations en masse, as well as upgrade firmware and monitor device statistics.  Use Cloud access to monitor devices or implement configuration changes rather than planning a visit to site.  Are you an installer or managed services provider? You can also set up sub-accounts for your customers, allowing them to manage and monitor their own devices.
