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 You will not find an ancient kernel or an outdated package on Melaleuca.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.
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.
