"If you rely on having a lag-free connection that offers you the fastest - and most stable - internet speeds possible, then there really is only one choice" - Techradar
DumaOS is a state-of-the-art router operating system that surpasses all existing home router technology.
It is packed full of powerful features that optimise your home's connection as it is built from the ground up to be interactive and easily extendable.
Through innovation and cutting-edge research, we have created a highly advanced feature set that optimizes the home connection. Our patent-pending feature set includes:
A best in class solution that eliminates bufferbloat and prioritzes your most important devices and applications
Anti-Bufferbloat: Prevents queuing from ever occurring on both the download and upload directions, allowing a busy household to intensively use the Internet without causing each other to lag
Bandwidth Allocation: Control the amount of bandwidth each device receives, meaning your most important devices never lack the bandwidth they need
Traffic Prioritization: Low-latency applications, such as games, are never caught in a network queue due to automatic detection driven by enterprise-level Deep Packet Inspection
Reduce distance, the main cause of lag in gaming, by guaranteeing a host close to your home.
Filtering Mode: Set a distance limit from your home to force a local connection and transform your connection in console games, such as Call of Duty, Destiny 2, FIFA 18, MADDEN plus many others
Spectating Mode: See your ping to the global servers for your favorite PC game, including PUBG, CS:GO, League of Legends and DOTA 2
Allow & Deny: Whitelist your friends and block laggy opponents to further optimize your game's connection
Identify which devices and using your home network and analyze by application thanks to enterprise-level Deep Packet Inspection.
Network Snapshot: View a real-time visual of your network's usage, by device, to identify who is hogging your bandwidth and take preventative action with your QoS Toolkit
Application Breakdown: Using Deep Packet Inspection worthy of enterprise routing, you can see which applications are consuming your bandwidth via in-depth drilldowns
Network Overview: See your network's total bandwidth consumption over a timespan
A beautiful User interface allows for easy and enjoyable navigation across the Operating System
Customizable Dashboard: Save your favourite features to your personalized Dashboard, a single page where you can configure and view your settings with ease
User-friendly: The complex is made simple thanks to an uncluttered UI, with advanced settings contained in out-of-view submenus and help tips present throughout
Device Management: Devices are automatically categorized into a device type and can be renamed, blocked and viewed on the Network Map
DumaOS demands regular interaction. This is a fundamental shift in user experience, transforming the router from a device that usually sits in the corner of a home, forgotten, to a device that you will want to interact with every day.
Each feature in DumaOS is contained within its own individual Router App ('R-App'). This isloation allows for each R-App to run independently, making it very easy to install new features without compromising the wider firmware. With a substantial roadmap ahead of us, feedback from our engaged user-base and an elite development team, DumaOS will only get better and better in the months and years to come.
