At CES 2023, GL.iNet will display its GL-S200 Thread border router, a miniature and versatile device for connecting to various smart-home devices, or for mass device connectivity in smart buildings. Supporting both device-to-device and device-to-cloud links, the router’s built-in Thread protocol allows deployment of multiple border routers seeking the most efficient path using the fewest nodes for internet connectivity.

The GL-S200 represents a future-proof smart-home gateway for home automation, supporting the Thread, BLE 5.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11b/n/g protocols. It delivers Wi-Fi data transfer rates up to 150 Mb/s and supports 10/100-Mb/s Ethernet.

At the heart of the GL-S200 is OpenWrt, an open-source operating system based on Linux. The OS lets users optimize device performance for specific use cases, or tailor the firmware for particular requirements. The device also comes with GoodCloud, a cloud device management platform for remote device access, batch firmware upgrades, and network analytics.

Visit GL.iNet at CES 2023 in the Venetian Expo, Level 2 - Booth 55344.
